I recently replaced my coolant. It was approx 50/50 with water wetter. Strange thing is I couldn't get as much in as I took out. Is this normal? I believe I put in about a pint/quart less. Do I have to "burp" the air out? How?

Thank you.:)

I was running the engine when I refilled the radiator, but still wasn't able to get as much coolant in as I took out.

That just happens sometimes. Just top off the radiator and check the fluid level in the overflow for the next few days. The system will "burp" itself if it needs to.

By far the best way is to top off the motor as well as the radiator. See the two heater hoses going over the #6 cylinder? One of them is easily removable from the vertical pipe just above the turbos.... remove... put a funnel in it... and fill it with your coolant/water mixture, then put the hose back on.....

Thank you drive through...

That's right. Thanks Andi. I never drain the engine though. I'm too lazy and I change the coolant pretty often.

For some reason I never have to add more water but I still check the overflow cuz I'm paranoid. I guess I'm just lucky? :)
