Coolant Tank Change (V6) Procedure?
Right - well............
KIKI's GTV has a filthy coolant tank - making it nigh on impossible to see where the water level is (unless in very very bright sunlight or by applying a torch in the correct position whilst rocking the bottle to see the level.
To cut a long story short I picked up a new tank from Alfa Romeo which was only about £21+ VAT a couple of weeks ago, but have not braved fitting it. It really must be done as it is dangerous in case we have a sudden coolant loss.
Question is - is it a specialist only job or can I do it myself? Removing the tank and hoses is no problem to me, but I do not want to pick up an air lock in the system if I don't refill correctly.
Are there air bleed screws in the cooling system and if so will I need to use them for this and where are they?
If all goes to plan I would like to sort this at the weekend.
