Thanks for the info regarding bleeding, but what about draining? I plan
on pulling the lower rad hose and letting a few quarts of coolant drain
out. That should be enough to get the water level below the
block-to-core hose, right? I'd hate to have coolant spill out back onto
all that electronic stuff.
I stumbled across a test procedure at Chris Miller's site. I'll do a
visual inspection of each fuse (before I just did a test-light check)
tomorrow .. as it will be 60 outside (with all this nice weather, I'm
scared as to what Jan/Feb/March will bring...)
