Question about 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix
No gasket sealer if any kind is needed and should not be used, just be careful to evenly torque the cover back on, don't over tighten,10-12 foot pounds is good. as far as filling the system goes there is a bleeder on top of the thermostat cover, open it during the fill process, pour the 50/50 mix of coolant into the system slowly until it starts to run out of the bleeder, wait until the fluid stream from the bleeder is clear of air and close the bleeder, top off the radiator to just below the lip of the radiator cap seal area, then fill the recovery tank at least 3/4 full, run the engine until it heats up, don't overheat it, if it starts to overheat you still have air, open the bleeder again and remove any trapped air, it will sometimes get near the high side of normal before the T-stat opens, this is normal, now shut the engine down and let it cool, recheck the radiator level and refill the recovery tank to proper level. DON'T OPEN THE CAP ON A HOT ENGINE, IT IS UNDER 12-17 POUNDS OF PRESSURE, U CAN RECIEVE SERIOUS BURNS FROM HOT COOLANT (which I have on a few occasions)
