[s-cars] Refilling Coolant

There is no need to bleed it, I just filled up the reservoir, ran the
car until it heats up and continue adding until the level in the
reservoir stabilizes at the full mark and the engine is hot.

I would do this outside, not in your garage, because all the new bits
will emit copious stinky smoke when it heats up. Its all the penetrating
oil and paint (if you painted or coated the EM) burning off.
