Ffont 2 steam ports are tied together like most ls engines. Then the vent hose runs to a heater core line.

Took about 6 miles of driving this morning to get over 245.

Can an overly "thick" mixture of antifreeze to water cause poor heat transfer? I put a full gallon of green concentrate, then about another gallon of distilled water. Figure I should be close to the 50/50 mix, but might be a bit heavy on the glycol.

I have no idea what else to check/do to get this thing under control. Ambient temp was 52degF this morning, and my 6 miles of driving was VERY docile.

Well this is fun

Good luck to them. Hope they did some reconditioning!

*edit* Looks like new tires (The ones I put on there were new in Dec '16), and a new gage cluster if nothing else.
