I’ve been doing this for about 40 minutes. Cap off 2500 rpms. The heat almost burns your hand when you hold it close to the vent but when you let it idle its cool again. The coolant level is still above the minimum level on the overflow tank. What is the longest I should have to do this?
Jaguar Mechanic: 3pac2222, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

jack the front of the car up and try again
