Lower Radiator Coolant Hose Cold... Normal?
Finished replacing new radiator, coolant, belts and flushed the intercooler last week (200Tdi). I have been driving around the last few days without issue (other than a small oil leak on the oil coiler line). Temp gauge is just over the 1/4 line, cabin heat works, but today I was poking around the engine bay and noticed all the hoses are hot except the lower hose up to the t-stat. Truck seems to run well (almost better than before)- is this normal or do I need to bleed system somehow. Thanks.
