Temp gauge is normal, I tried to check the hoses also,
they are both warm, almost like there is not enough flow through it. I even put a fluching T in the back at the inlet hose of the heatercore and I can take the cap off and the waterpump doesnt force anything out unless I put my filling funnel on the rad and put the level higher than the flushing T cap.
I was thinking it may be the waterpump. I have been turning wrenches for 24 years and have had one car( a mitsu.) That had no heat, but it would overheat, ended up being the fins on the impeller was rotted off.
But I dont lose coolant on the mazda and it doesnt overheat at all.
