[DML] Cooling System Refilling

Last week I re-charged the AC on my DeLorean and took it out for a 
drive.  AC had not been operating for several months.  At a stop, I 
let it idle for about two minutes and noticed that the temperature 
gauge was just above the normal position.  It stayed there as I 
drove another mile and then steam came from the engine compartment, 
fogging the rear window.  I pulled over and shut it off right away.  
The original plastic coolant overflow tank had ruptured down the 
bottom seam and coolant was all over. (The car has 11,000 miles on 

Anyhow, I got it towed home and have ordered, received, and 
installed a new stainless steel overflow tank.  I also have a 
complete new hose kit but have only partially installed it. (Looks 
like a real job - some are barely reachable!) I plan to test the car 
with only a partial install of the new hoses since I now have 
concerns that the fans are not working properly and I want to check 
that out.

I know from reading this web site that there is a special re-filling 
procedure but could not find it last night in the shop manual.  Is 
it in the shop manual and I'm not finding it?  If so, just tell me 
where.  If it is not in the manual where can I find it?

I'm reading all of the recent posts about "Fanzilla" and 
alternatives.  Any advice here?  I have been told that hearing the 
fans sequence on can easily be heard from the driver's seat, 
specially with the window down.  I don't think I have ever heard 
this.  The fans may never have came on!  (I have the two fuses in 
the blue relay socket in the area behind the passenger seat.)

Anyhow, that is where I am.  Thanks is advance for any help!
