Cooling question

<b>NF Fairlane 5.0L V8</b>

I've just had the system flushed and filled with 50% mix of that Nulon Long Life antifreeze-antiboil stuff. (And yes, it does cause leaks)

I've only had this car a couple of months so I don't know - but on an egg-carton overflow tank, is it possible to see the water being pushed through the system by the pump or is mine having a bit of a boil. I did not notice this with the old antifreeze, but now there is quite a bit of action in the overflow tank.

Temp range within limits, not losing fluid.

Is this bubbling and swirling normal?

Most AU's I've seen seem to have some swirling action going. Older stuff normally has that much crap inside the bottle you can't see. Perhaps what you put in there rinsed it off a bit?

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.
