as far as oil in the antifreeze or antifreeze in the oil i'm not noticing any of that and have check for it several times.
as for a pressure test on the reservoir they are telling me the pressure is getting so high that they can't even do that.
as for how fast it heats up, you start it up, let the oil get to the top of the engine then put it in gear and drive 120 yards from the pole barn to the garage and the temp bars are lighting up one after the other quickly.
didn't think about the air pocket though or the water pump, i'll check those too.
if anyone has anymore ideas i'd be grateful to hear them, thanks for the help thus far.
i would say the water pump crapped out completely.. no circulation
