My old Chrysler had an issue like this. There was an innocuous plug on the top of the block that had to be opened to let it burp correctly. Sorry I don't have any manuals for this model. It does sound as if you are having an air block that needs burping. Do you have the shop manuals for this model?

Are you seeing water at exhaust? At least some water? Or none? Is it less than normal?

What is the code thrown for shutdown? High Temp? or is it generic?

I would make sure you aren't getting a false low oil temp or pressure shutdown sensor first. Disconnect the oil pressure sensor. see if it will run past the temp. At 190 degrees you aren't overheating. It's something else.

Good outcome. Sounds like you had the exact same experience that I did but in a more confining space. Now, I always keep track of how much it takes to fill the coolant systems and that much has to go in again after I drain it and even then I burp those hoses a few times for good measure.
