Hi

Set the cabin heater temperature to as hot as it will go so that the coolant goes all the way through the system including the heater matrix, fill the coolant up to the max mark, keep the lid off the coolant bottle, start the engine, and let it idle to full temp, but keep an eye on the coolant level in case it requires topping up. Allow the cooling fan to cut in a couple of times to ensure that there is no air lock. Replace the coolant cap. Job done.

Well, job done my way any how!!!!!

Regards

Geordie

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
