Summer-
The burping procedure is described in your owner's manual under 'maintenance procedures'-'cooling system bleeding'. And I use green coolant that mixes with all colors, good for aluminum, etc.
Ok. Thanks to both of you.... I will start reading and burping and see what happens!

If you got a tree and a winch stand it on its rear end all the air will move to the front .

Of course I think the dealer should have done that! My experience at the dealership is a sore subject for service altogether. So the reserve tank underneath was a little below the min line. And I could even see it in the main tank so I topped both off. When I did that I noticed a clear tube with the link antifreeze in it not plugged in anywhere. It has a white cap in it so wondering if that is a bleed line or if it’s supposed to be plugged in anywhere? Didn’t see mention of this line in the manual. just drove it and it went to 4 bars hot and fan came on a few times so I guess that’s a good thing.

4 bars is normal. Only clear lines are vent lines . Now if your talking about a clear line on bottom right front of the engine 4” long not hooked to anything that the water pump peep line . If water pump seal goes out it drains the water out that line to keep it from crossing over into the oil.

The line with the white breather on it, at least on mine, is the fuel tank vent line. There is also the front diff vent line and cooling fan vent line. If there's another, it probably goes to the canuter valve.

My commander needed to be lifted about 3’ up in the front to get the air to bugger off . The Coolant lines go up and down and all over the place on these canned hams . Guess that’s why they are hard to burp
