Damn stock gauges. Should upgrade with a pillar pod and few accurate gauges.

Yea I have the directions lol just not the greatest when it comes to electrical.

I did notice my upper radiator hose has a air pocket in it and the thermostat isn't opening , how do I get that Air pocket out ?

Leave the cap open while idling... Continue to fill until anything you poor in goes into the overflow.

Burp the system, google on how to do it. Why does nobody burp the system...

As far as the gauge install, they should have directions. The water temp sender is on the front left of the lower intake manifold, you just take out the stock sender, put the new sender in there, run the wire/mercury tube through the firewall and then bug into power for the gauge. You can also keep your stock gauge working as well by changing out the thermostat housing to one with a bung (for F150s) and just extend the wire for the stock sender. Put the stock sender in there and boom, no dead gauge. Oil pressure is easy too and you can keep the stock gauge working with that as well. Its a good backup to have honestly so if your aftermarket gauge flakes out you can look at the stocker and know if you at least have some pressure (it trips at 6 psi).

Here was how I had my 95

Remove cap and fill to top....start it and put the heat on high...idle til close to hot enough for thermostat to open while giving the upper hose a couple squeezes in process...once thermostat opens and sucks the water down continue to add coolant until it stays full...I like to hold rpm up alil also while its hot then put cap on and fill over flow..should be good...buy a Haynes manual for gauges makes it easier to find wat wires to clip to and such..

Well I burped the system , changed the thermostat with a Mr. gasket's 180 degree one topped of the radiator and the upper hose is still full of air and the thermostat is not opening? Heat is on and it's blowing cold , any ideas ?

Could the water pump be bad already. It's only been on the car for a year .

Bypass the pump temporarily and pump coolant through the system manually... That'll rule out the water pump and could help point it to something else.
