Looking for advice- Few weeks back my engine overheated and steam came from under the hood. Turns out the water bypass hose needed to be replaced as I was replacing the coolant I could see it pouring right out onto the street. We replaced the bypass hose and the radiator seems to hold coolant now, but the needle still rides a little high (just under halfway) and if I don’t have the heater on full blast it begins to creep up past the halfway point.
I was going to try the thermostat next, but I’m not 100% sure where to go from here. Thoughts?
