  1. Install the pressure relief cap.
  1. Remove the retaining clip and the fill tab on the top of the thermostat housing and fill through the thermostat housing until full.
  1. Install the fill tab and retaining clip.
  1. Select the maximum heater temperature and blower motor speed settings. Position the control to discharge air from the A/C vents in the instrument panel.
  1. Start the engine and allow it to idle until engine reaches normal operating temperature. While the engine is idling, feel for hot air from the A/C vents.
  1. CAUTION: If the air discharge remains cool and the engine coolant temperature gauge does not move or the low coolant light comes on, the engine coolant level is low in the engine and must be filled. Stop the engine, allow it to cool and fill the cooling system.Run the engine at 3,000 rpm for 10 minutes. Hot air should discharge from the A/C vents. The engine coolant temperature gauge should maintain a stabilized reading in the middle of the normal range, and the upper radiator hose should feel hot to the touch.
    • Shut the engine off and allow it to cool.
    • Check the engine for coolant leaks.
    • Check the engine coolant level in the degas bottle and fill to the seam line.

If the check engine light stays on when your engine is running, your onboard computer has detected a fault in your emissions system. You need to have it hooked up to a code detector to find out what the problem is. If you are near an Autozone or Advance auto parts store they will usually do that for free. Here is where your search begins. Most of the time the code for "engine lean" will show up. That means you are getting too much air into the intake manifold. Excess air gets in through vacuum tube leaks, intake gasket leaks, faulty EGR, and PVC valves and sometimes valve stem seals, There are also a variety of other codes that may indicate faulty oxygen sensors, catalytic converter, fuel evaporative system. It is too expensive to just start changing parts and hoping you get it the first. It is important to get the codes that are stored in your onboard computer first.
