Filling Procedure

  1. Refill the cooling system. In order to ensure sufficient engine cooling, freezing and corrosion protection, maintain the coolant protection level at -37°C (-34°F) or lower.
  2. Mix DEX-COOL and clean drinkable water to a 50/50 mixture.
  3. Set the heater and A/C control to the highest setting.
  4. Allow the engine to continue idling until the lower radiator to water pump hose becomes hot.
  5. Cycle the engine speed up to about 3,000 RPM and back to idle 5 times.
  6. After the air has been released, fill the radiator. Install the surge tank cap.
  7. Allow the engine to cool to the outside temperature. Check the coolant level.
