I was assuming that the radiator shop did that when they replaced the t-hose and thermostat. but i also went out there and started it up and it seems to have pressure in the system. But i just checked by squeezing the hose once the thermostat opened up is there a better way to check this
how is this pressure test performed is it something i can do myself
i already had my husband do that and
he says the upper hose is hot but the bottom parts of the hose are still cool
they supposedly checked the radiator at the radiator shop do I assume that they did not i will still run the pressure check but i want to make sure that i check for everything before giving in to the "blown head gasket theory" by the way this is not my car my niece was in a rush to buy a car and bought this one because it was a local car and in her price range. I am just trying to keep her from throwing good money after bad.
