Thupertrooper (Victor):
Make sure you burp the system air bubbles will make it run hot

how do i burp the system and figure out if fans are coming on?

PitSnipe (Kyle):
Fans should come oon when the coolant gets hot. Also fans will come on with the a/c on. To burp the system you remove the radiator cap. Start the vehicle. Let it get hot. Once the thermostat opens the coolant will flow. Top off coolant as the air escapes. Whole process should take about 30 min if done right.

Thupertrooper (Victor):
When burping lifting the front end a little with a floor jack helps. Also turn on the heater at full blast.

i burped the system, the fan comes on as soon as the car turns on with no a/c or heat on
