yep...same as air in the brake lines....an air bubble just stops fluid motion in just about any situation.

Re: Radiator hose

When you are finished messing with the coolant system, this article explains how to properly fill the system without air in system and our thermostats are very unique with a "relief hole" and has to be placed into the housing a particular way if it is to function correctly. Hope this helps.
