Re: Burping The Coolant System
See if this proceedure works for you.
With the engine cool remove the radiator cap, start the engine and let it run until the radiator "burps". You will see the coolant level drop and may see or hear a large air bubble come to the top as the system burps.
Keep an eye on the temperature gauge throughout this process.
Refill the radiator to the top and coolant reservoir as needed.
Put the radiator cap back on.
If the engine runs hot after this procedure there may be another pocket of air that needs to be "burped." Let the engine cool down and then add more coolant to both the radiator and the coolant reservoir and repeat.
