Can you help me out which hose you are reffering to and which end I should disconnect? Here is a picture of the engine bay.terry schulze said:Get a piece of hose a foot long or so. I think it is 3/8". Clear hose is nice as you can see through it.
Take the small hose off of the engine right next to the top radiator hose on passenger side. Take some string and tie the end of the hose up so it is higher than the top of the intake manifold. Push the spare hose onto the nipple you took the hose off of and hold or tie it up so it is as high as you can.
This should let trapped air excape. Fill the reservoir to the correct level and you should be ok. Then quickly pull the spare hose off & stick your finger over the nipple. Then quickly put the other hose back on the nipple.
It is easier to get the hose off & on if you take the electrical connector off, just don't get either end on the connector wet.

When filling the cooling system use a 50 to 60 percent concentration with DEX-COOL® coolant.
Fill the system through the surge tank opening.
Fill half the capacity of the system with 100 percent DEX-COOL® coolant. Slowly add clean drinkable water to the system until the level reaches to the base of the neck. Start the engine. Idle engine for 1 minute. Install surge tank cap.
Cycle the RPM, idle to 3000 in 30 second intervals until engine coolant reaches 99°C (210°F). Shut off the engine. Refer to step 3 above to remove the surge tank cap. Start the engine. Idle engine for 1 minute and fill surge tank to 1/2 inch above COLD FULL mark on the radiator surge tank. Install the surge tank cap. Cycle the RPM, idle to 3000 in 30 second intervals until engine coolant reaches 99°C (210°F).
Shut off the engine. Top off coolant as necessary, 1/2 inch above FULL COLD mark on the radiator surge tank. Rinse away any excess coolant from the engine and the compartment. Inspect the concentration of the coolant.
