Burping a 'TEC
I drained my coolant out of my Duratec last weekend to do some work. So, I refilled it, up to about 3/4 of the tank, and started it up with the cap off. Let the thermostat open up and gave all the hoses a few squeezes to get out any air. Shut it off and let it cool down, with the cap off. Later, I poured in the rest of the coolant and it fills the tank to about 90% full. WTH???
I did this 3 years ago and didn't have this problem. Is there some secret to doing this?
