Firstly, thank you for your response. Your knowledge and diagrams are excellent. Very simple to follow and easy for the average lamen to understand.
I have a follow up question in relation to changing out the coolant.
After following this procedure I noticed that I only used 2.5L of coolant to refill the system. The manual states that the cruze takes 7.5L.
Obviously the rest of the coolant is trapped somewhere between the engine block(probably behind the thermostat) and the heater core/pipe work Etc.
Is there any way of draining this other 5L of coolant from a dump valve somewhere?
Or is it more a matter of filling with water, running (driving) with heater on for 30mins and then draining and flushing?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
