Just drained the coolant out of my car, only started to fill it when it had totally stopped dripping from under the rad. I see in the Haynes it says the total coolant for my model is just about 6 litres. However, I only put in 2 litres water and 2 litres antifreeze, and the level is very near full in the expansion tank. Is this due to the fact that the coolant cannot be totally drained from the block? Or will I get a lot more water in once the engine has cooled?
I hope once this is settled it will help at least one more person who has the same problem!
