Question about 1998 GMC Sierra
I just finished up w/ water pump - thermostat replacement. I have never done before on this truck. I am feeling my way through. So my question is ... I added 1 gal. dexcool, then started adding gal. water. going very slow, adding through rad cap opening. after 20 min no more water was fitting. Started for 30 seconds thinking will pull into block. afterword the the overflow tank has coolant already. I'm less than 8 quarts. Was told 18. what gives? what should my next step be? thanks you guys are awesome.
2 gals. sounds about right for fill up after a water pump job there is coolant left in radiator,heater core &engine block and of couse the reservoir. thanks from schleck.
