    How do you get rid of air pocket in cooling system? A week ago changed water pump and thermostat (195). Temp would not go beyond 1/4. Normal is right before center at about 195. Have added more anti freeze a couple of times.Sometimes it does go up to where it is supposed to be but then goes back down. Thanks in advance>

    Dont think its a air pocket. Start the truck up cold with the rad cap off, let er warm up. Have a thought that the cooling system is working just fine, and the cooler weather is making it run cooler. Looks like the thermostat is working ok. as it works up to 195 and then opens up.
