Coolant
Tap the water hoses to force out any air bubbles [A]
caught inside.
Check the coolant level (see Coolant Level Inspection in
the Periodic Maintenance chapter).
If the coolant level is low, add coolant up to the bottom of
the radiator filler neck.
Install the radiator cap.
The radiator cap must be installed in two steps. First
turn the cap clockwise to the first stop. Then push down
on it and turn it the rest of the way.
Start the engine, warm up the engine thoroughly, and then
stop the engine.
Wait until the engine cools down.
Check the coolant level (see Coolant Level Inspection in
the Periodic Maintenance chapter).
If the coolant level is low, add coolant up to the bottom of
the radiator filler neck.
Install the radiator cap.
Check the cooling system for leaks.

Cooling System Pressure Testing

During pressure testing, do not exceed the pres-
sure for which the system is designed to work. The
maximum pressure is 137.4 kPa (1.40 kgf/cm², 19.9
psi).
Remove the radiator cap, and install a cooling system
pressure tester [A] and adapter [B] on the radiator filler
neck [C].
Wet the adapter cap sealing surfaces with water or
coolant to prevent pressure leaks.
Build up pressure in the system carefully until the pres-
sure reaches 137.4 kPa (1.40 kgf/cm², 19.9 psi).
Watch the gauge for at least 6 seconds.
If the pressure holds steady, the cooling system is all right.
If the pressure drops and no external source is found,
check for internal leaks. Check the cylinder head gasket
for leaks.
Remove the pressure tester, replenish the coolant, and
install the radiator cap.
