so it should stay around 180?
It most likely is sitting around 180. I'd say there'* a chance the sender or gauge may be inaccurate.

Scanner that reads live data would tell you the exact temps the pcm is seeing.

When you're gauge reads 220 are your low speed fans on? They come on at 216ish. High speed come on at 225.

If the fans are not on..then I'd start thinking sender/gauge.

I must have your tstat and you have mine. Mine is a 195 and it sits around 170-180 and I didn't bleed. Yers is a 180 and you are getting more like the temps I got with my old 190.

According to your gauge.

Please pick up on the fact that we know our gauges (any car gauges for that matter) are slightly to grossly inaccurate in most cases.

And how did you bleed 3 more times? Running and loosening the screw.

when i came home from work my temp was at like 250
so started the bleeding procedure. loosened and let it **** out every
thing it had. let it sit about an hour jumped in and started it up and
BAM!!!!! temp is 190. took it for a drive, cranked up the heat and 2 miles
down the road its at 240. went home and repeated. and went out for
a drive it went up to about 220 so i stopped an fueled up and on my way
home it dropped to 200. repeated bleeding process and it hasn't passed
185 yet. hopefully that will be the end of this dilema.

was this caused by pressure build up, caused by a air pocket?

This would be an air pocket that was not releasing. (Had one on a car previously that I jacked the front of the car up to move the pocket.)
