Tempature high

Hi guys , I've not drivin my subaru for 7 weeks . Drove her this morning for less than 5 min , temp gauge was reading normal or just above normal . I drove home popped the bonnet , felt the radiator was warm the coolant resivoure was warm , top coolant pipe was hot , the bottom coolant hose was warmish . Is this normal . Before I stopped driving her . I gave her a full coolant change . Thanks for your time . Vic

Re: Tempature high

take off filler cap and run the engine till the fans cut in and then go off it may take a few times until bubbles stop coming up oh also keep interior fans on hot, it works for me, some people just drive hard and blast it through (not recomended)
and yes the bottom hose should be hot when at normal running temprature
