No special devices.Before filling, look on peak of the housing the thermostat goes into. There"s a 12mm bleed bolt tbelow.Open it, and also fill through Type 2 until coolant flows out. Close bleeder, end up filling, include a tiny bit extra in the reserve tank and you"re fine.Do not open the bleeder with the engine running, or fill the device through it closed.

The V6 bleeds via the rad cap as you fill as it"s the highest possible allude. You simply need to fill it at a sluggish regulated rate to allow it to fill correctly.On either auto, make certain the heat is turned up all the means (key ON to make sure the valve opens, then shut it off) before draining or filling.

Even though I rerelocate my thermostat, I turn up the blower motor and also temp. all the way. I always fill the radiator and also overflow bottle complete, then start the automobile. Then I just add coolant to the overflow bottle as soon as it gets low (around 3 times) without shedding the syphon.What is this "sluggish rate" you stop of?:dunno:

You don"t want to pour the coolant in also rapid into the radiator, the air won"t escape, or it"ll ago up and burp out via coolant. To put about 1.5 gallons in, it should take about 5 to 10 minutes at the filling speed to let the air out.Why did you rerelocate the thermostat? What is currently sealing the real estate to the water passage?

I take the thermo (and gasket) out so I don"t need to wait for the water to warmth up. It doesn"t leak as well much. Next off time, I"ll leave the gasket in and check out if that works.

I still do not get why you"d carry out that.The stat (OEM) has actually the jiggle pin that lets air gain previous. It"s totally not essential to leave it out, and draining out coolant of a warm aluminum engine is a VERY poor principle.

FredSVT; you are VERY knowledgeable, however, I think both of us are missing something(s).1. I drain everything from the pet**** 2. I rerelocate the thrermo and also gasket, toss out, and also reconnect.3. I fill radiator, currently extremely slowly, and overcirculation bottle complete via H20.4. I start automobile, put warmth and also breduced motor on full blast, and fill cooling device to capacity (1.5-1.6 gal.) and also let it run for prefer 5 min.5. Shut car off, water is not also hot and also drain. Repeat 3X. (By third time water is usually HOT and I wait a little, as not to scold myself and came to around alum. engine.)6. Drink a beer or 2. (approx. 30 min.)7. Repeat measures 3 and also 4 with Honda Type II.7. I rearea thermo and gasket w/ new thermo and also gasket.8. Repeat action 5 ONLY twice.9. Finish remaining 4 beers. Entire process takes a pair hrs, perfect for a Saturday afternoon.
