    Just got back from garage,thermostat was fine(atleast when I got there),computer said temp good 218.Mechanic did bleed system (I believe from nut where hose comes out of engine then to heater core).Didn't seem to work at that time.But on way home, after running car down 295 pretty fast,heater now working.Letting car cool down now,crossing fingers,going to try it again.Thank You
