Welcome to just I'm here to help you and your 100% satisfaction is my goal. Checked to make sure the cooling system is getting up to temperature then remove one of the heater hoses and see if you have a good strong flow of coolant through what. Let me know what you find and we will test further

we bypassed the heater core and still no flow from the water outlet
Expert:  Dodge expert replied 5 years ago.
If the water pump is functioning properly , then the only other possibility is that you have a air trapped in the system you'll need to bleed the system more carefully possibly even forcing fluid through the heater hoses using a garden hose till you get all of the air from the system

did that, its just bothering us that when u disconnect the heater hose inlet water just trickles out , dont u agree that from a 5/8 heater hose the should be volume to push water through the core, our thought now is that little bit of flow is normal and the even though flushed is paritally clogged
Expert:  Dodge expert replied 5 years ago.
Exactly , that's why I want you to flow water directly through the entire system using a garden hose if if flows freely that means that we have no clog And if you say the Intel are is in good shape on the water pump and it is installed properly then we must have a air in the system not allowing the pump to flow the water
