I just don't want to go to the extra effort of draining and refilling as I
am in the process of selling that car. In addition, for the same reason,
I'm not very comfortable putting non-spec and at least as yet somewhat
unproven fluid in it. I have no qualms about it for myself, I just don't
want any unwelcome surprises from an angry buyer later on down the road.
Btw, is the return line to the reservoir the larger hose on the bottom of
it? Is that how you flush, by redirecting that to a pail? And is that
the hose in which you put a filter?
