Hoping someone here could help me with this. For the sake of not starting yet another Overheating thread, I'll cut to the chase here. My 95 LWB started overheating very suddenly the other day during a normal drive on flat roads in cool weather. All visual stuff recommended on this forum has been done and all looks good so, starting with thermostat test.
My question is, in the shop manual, it states to "partially drain cooling system until coolant level is below thermostat housing". Can anyone tell me how one would tell when the coolant level is below the housing? Trying not to go through the trouble of a full drain and process of refilling properly in order to avoid air pockets in system.
Thanks in advance everyone! Oh, and if you haven't yet downloaded the large file of shop manuals, repair manuals, etc. I highly recommend it. Wow. Kudos forum peeps.
