Min gurgled once during my dilemma. I've been filling it through the over flow then read to fill it from the therm. Housing with the bleeder open and fill till it comes out the bleeder.

Correct me if I'm wrong but you said it HAD factory orange coolant then you addeed the 50/50 green?if so it's to my knowledge you need to drain it and run either full molar orange or the standard green antifreeze. Due to long term corrosion problems between the two mixxing

Whats that stuff feel like? It looks alot like the uncured 1775 we use at work to pressure seal the jet.

Something like that could definitely clog something up. A new thermostat would be wise as well.

Way ahead of you on the new thermostat and it kinda felt like silicone I guess would be the best answer, but I heard something about dex cool clotting up and clogging certain things, we are going to do a couple flushes in about a couple of hours and see if we can unblock anything that might be blocked. Will post as soon as it works or not.

Overheating no hot air in car

Sounds funny but rinse it out with a garden hose just squirt water in the engine for a long Time

I would pull the radiator out an squirt it out too.

Then fill with straight distilled water. Start car Let it cycle a few times

Drain.

See if its clean or dirty

It still real bad do it again.

But don't put coolant till it clean and ready to fill back the last time.
