Took it for a drive tonight and it did pretty good temp wise. Might be one small air pocket so will bleed one more time tomorrow!
I just learned about "Air-Lift" vacuum bleeders for cooling systems... I bought it for a Diesel EGR Cooler job, but now it's my go-to for bleeding cooling systems. Literally vacuums out all the air in the system and replaces it with coolant.
Doesn't sound too dissimilar (just opposite operation) from my Motive brake bleeder system. With an adapter for our master cylinder, it applies pressure to the brake system (with fluid in the Motive container). One at a time, I crack open the bleeder at the calipers just like any other fluid change procedure and the Motive pump vessel pushes out the old fluid, replacing it with fresh new fluid, no need to have someone pump the pedal while you open and close the bleeder repeatedly. Close it when the fluid runs clear and without bubbles and move the next. Longest part of doing a brake fluid change is putting the car in the air and removing the wheel and tire assemblies! Planning to get an adapter for the Jeep to replace its factory fill when the front brakes finally get bored and wear out (still plenty of meat at 82,000 miles despite years with 35s and now 33s) and I commit to a big brake upgrade.
