Re: [DML] Cooling System Refilling



Bob,

Follow this procedure for refilling the cooling system:
http://www.dmcnews.com/Techsection/cooling.htm

The real keys here are the parts about flushing with a garden hose and
filling through the upper radiator hose (in the engine compartment).

If you do not yet have a radiator quickbleeder deal, buy one from Toby
(www.delorean-parts.com). You do need to bleed air from the radiator
area and this makes the job relatively painless once installed. If
your radiator is original be very careful with the hoses, the radiator
bibs are plastic. Mine broke and I had to replace the radiator.
