Still no heat .

i posted up a thread a week or so ago i got a 2003 f250 psd 7.3 and a couple guys told me i was more than likely having thermostat trouble , welp i went and bought another 195 thermostat cant really afford the 203 right now installed the thermostat . i drove the truck to the store probally 5 mile from the house and about 2 1/2 miles the trucks heat gage went to hot and check gage light came on so i pulled over right away and it started going right back down and heat started to worked , it worked fine for 15 / 20 mins then when i parked it and left it running it stoped and wouldnt work anymore . it does the exact same thing every time i drive it. it also will spew antifreeze when i take the cap off after its been running any ideas thanks Aaron

he could pull the cap off and let the truck idle for a while and it should burp once the thermostat opens.
If it was me I would not have bought the lower degree if you could not afford the higher one I would of just waited.

well i had 12$ not 50$ kinda just want the heat to work not really worried about it being hotter i just would like to have some warm air. im not to picky 195 is what came in the truck. but yes when i get the money i would like to install the 203 since it has a few benifits for the truck
when you say burp, do you mean after the truck has run let it burp the antifreez out the lid . because everytime im driving it i can let a little air out the lid and the heat will work , could it have to much antifreez in it ? Thanks Aaron

If your letting air out your system is cavitating some how

blades on the water pump could be shot causing cavitation and air into the system
