05/12/2004 14:09:00   paul   I have been giving my radiator and coolant a drain out and clean.

The manuals state the capacity is aprox 8 litre, but when I tried to fill up, I barely got 1 litre in.

Am I missing something?

How did you drain it and how did you refill?

I've filled the system through the rad cap now, and 5 or 6 litres have gone in.

Expect it will settle a little more.

Expect more dumb questions on the next job.
