        cap and start it, Hold above 3000 rpm (with defrost on full and temp
        on full hot) till the temp comes up near normal and hot air is coming
        out the defrost ducts. Turn it off let it sit till it cools again
        then refill and test drive. Recheck coolant level after the test

        system with combustion pressure.
