Default Coolant routing?

Here's the deal, I have a 98 Forester 2.5l The heater core blew yesterday, so I pulled off to the side of the road and bypassed it. Started back up, no more spewing of hot coolant on my feet But now it's overheating!! Other than a possibly kinked hose (used the ones in there, thinking of getting a short piece instead so it's not twisted all over the place in there) what would cause that? Was running just fine before the bypass.

Heater core replaced just over 3 months ago, and the shop is giving me grief on not covering the labor but will warranty the part "IF" it's defective. Which is just another whole bag of crap which I won't get into on here.

ooooh, forgot about air bubbles. That makes perfect sense since I introduced air into the mix when bypassing the HC. What's the best way of "burping" those out?

Fix the blown heater core first before you attempt to bleed the air out. You will never get the air out if you have a leak in the system.
