I removed the bottom radiator hose so I could remove the timing belt cover to check the belts. They are new, but I ran into trouble when I put everything back together.
About 3/4 gallon of coolant came out but O was able to add less the 1/2 gallon.
I started the engine for a little bit to see if the level in the reservoir would come down but it didn't. The crossover tubes started to get warm but the thermostat housing didn't.
I read something about using a vacuum pump but I have no idea where or how.
Can anyone help me?
Thanks
Kiko

When I removed the tank I realized my mistake. I thought the reservoir was pressurized, when I removed the "tank" I realized it's not, the water goes into the radiator from the reservoir only when the system cools. DUH
I don't know what I was thinking. Probably about the lady next door :)
Good thing I didn't run it for long.

Thank you very much for the help.
