Re: Coolant replacement

What limits the life of coolant is exposure to the engine. It is doing it's job preventing corrosion. While it's in the plastic bottle, the coolant is not "wearing out".

Re: Coolant changed / Cooling temp fluctuation

running it with the rad cap off is the way to go. i find if i pour coolant in _very_ slowly, i get no air in the system.
