Hi! This is Jon on behalf of Expert Village. In this video clip, I'll take you through step 5 in our procedure for flushing the cooling system. After we've mixed our coolant, we are going to go ahead and fill up our cooling system, and if you miss a little bit, that's all right. We can just wash it off. When you fill it up, you might need to let it bubble down a little bit before putting some more in. When we can't fit anymore coolant in through the radiator cap, we are going to go ahead and fill our overflow reservoir to the cold line. The last thing that we need to do is test out what we did, so we need to go ahead and start the car and keep an eye on the temperature gage. If the temperature goes up really high, really fast, you need to turn your car off and double check what you've done. Lastly what you want to do is double check that overflow just to make sure that it hasn't gone down any. If it has, go ahead and add a little bit more.
