thats my assumption too, but considering they got the truck on tuesday and i got it back saturday at noon, for a radiator and thermostats that were in stock, you'd think they'd get the air out. My wife called the service and guy and was told to drive it a few more days to assure the air is out and they'd top it off. I havent been happy with my ford dealer and was just seeing if this was common pracitice or no

Yeah, sounds reasonable. That does look like green coolant though, might ask about that...
