    Default Cooling System?

    I replaced my t-stat and housing yesterday evening. I topped off the radiator this morning and let it run to burp the system. I watched the temp gauge get to where the t-stat should have opened and when I went to top off the rad I noticed that there was little movement of the coolant. How much movement is normal for Jeeps? This is my first time having to mess with the cooling system and I have had some cars that show alot of movement and some that show very little. It's not overheating or boiling over but I am a bit concerned.

    I have a 4.0 Lswapped in w/ a 3 core radiator and a 175 degree thermostat. I don't have a lot of movement once open. Not sure what your set up is.

    as long as it is not over heating I think your good to go bud.

    Not sure if you did this, but did you remove the temp/coolant gauge sensor from the back of the head when 'burping' the system? It'll help in purging the air from the back of the head.
    As for movement in the radiator, I haven't noticed alot of movement now that I think of it.
