    I just put in a new heater core and blower under the glove box. I went through the procedure above and have not seen any error codes. I also ran it for a while on a steep incline pointing down to get the heater core lower than the engine to try and force out any other bubbles.
    My question is. What is a good temp sensor for the 1000? I have no idea what my temps are. In the summer it ran fine even when it was very hot out. Now in the winter since I added the core it seems to run real cool. Fan hardly kicks on. Not blowing very warm air out of heater except when running 5000+ rpm. I think I need to insulate the lines running through the tunnel to the core. I am sure I am loosing allot of heat there.

    Hold down the two buttons (15 seconds) and the first reading that pops up is the coolant temp being sensed at the thermostat... seems pretty accurate to me... the cooling system on the cat is pretty good so the extra capacity you've built in may be over cooling.

    I've had my temp climb above 210 with semi-aggressive driving. Had to slow it down to get back below 200. Just did the "burp" procedure per Chaparral and there was definitely some air coming out of the rear head before the coolant came out. Hope that's it!
    Thanks Chaparral for the easy instructions!

    Yeah, 210 is getting up there. You definitely have an air pocket somewhere in there.

    Hopefully you didn't run hot long enough to trash the little seal. IF, you get a dribble of coolant from the pump you can buy this $26 seal kit instead of the entire $160 pump ... The dealers mostly don't know about this!!!!

    In self defense you need to learn all you can because many dealers don't know the little details and want to change out major parts.
    Rock Hopper, I think you just found my problem. If and this is a big IF my pump does not weep coolant would this indicate that the seal has not been ruined and it is probably the thermostat? If the seal is weeping, does this let so much coolant out that it causes the overheating and eventual puking? Or does the poor seal just let the coolant by pass and not get to the radiator? Thanks

    You should do that entire burp procedure and see if that fixes your problem. The fact that your radiator easily took 16 ounces out in the dunes tells me you still probably have air in the system. It may not be your thermostat at all.

    Whoa, missed that! 16 ounces? No wonder why it was running hot!

    It still ran hot after that, although he did get in 2 runs without issue after that water was added in the field. I thought adding the water fixed the problem, but the overheating and pukeing coolant came back.

    Mission dude got the 16 ounces mixed up with his beer consumption. Last thing I remember him saying is " is 9:30 AM too early to have a beer? I did top off a couple of times in the dunes and did get some good runs in after that but each time it puked out some more and had to repeat procedure to complete the run back to camp.

    Ordered thermostat and going to Stethoscope the water pump, check for weeping, and bleed the 4 plugs instead of just the little plug today. Can you just forget installing the thermostat if living out here in Ca and really only going to the dunes IYO??

    What about my question of Just leaving the Thermostat out?? Who needs it in Ca in the Dunes? Did the fill again and checked for flow and to see if there were any bubbles in the flow, none that I could see so I capped it and ran it until it got hot and shut it off to check for a "weeping water pump. No WEEP. Did not receive new Thermostat yet. The Stethoscope on the pump was normal quiet IMO but still suspect it has a worn impeller and does not achieve full flow. Rockhopper said he put the seal kit in. Was that to stop the weep only or was that to eliminate some bypassing of the pump?

    Still think you have an air pocket in there somewhere. Did you burp the system when it was hot?
