My car also has this problem, ive posted this a while ago and got no help. When i took it to the dealer the lower raitor hose was replaced, they said i was leaking coolant, that did not work, so they advised me to replace the theromostat. that did not work either, so i took it back, they told me that my coolant neck was corriaded, they replaced that which cost me around 400, and also blead the system. THIS STILL DID NOT FIX MY PROBLEM. So i took it back and they told me for some reason i keep getting air pockets in the cooling system. So they thought maybe my heads were blown or cracked, they sent them away and found they were ok. So now their telling me I have a crack in my block. car only has around 53k on it and its been in the shop for about a month because they have ordered me a new small block..... well see how it works now?
Sorry to here all the problems with your heat, but this funnel is the only way you can get all those air pockets out of your system.
Most shops dont have this funnel and its a must for all vehicals.
