Coolant Capacity Help!!!
I did the whole Gooch's coolant flush procedure to flush all the old coolant out of my truck (draining block plugs, etc.). I installed a new water pump, thermostat, and hoses when I was done. I installed 6 gallons of coolant (3 gallons of Prestone ELC and 3 gallons of distilled water) and it shows as full. I drove the truck, and even turned my heater on to full blast. Heater is getting hot. But my degas bottle is still full with only 6 gallons in it.
I thought the truck was supposed to take more like 8 gallons of coolant/distilled water. What is the deal? Is 6 gallons actually normal, or do I need to get this thing to burp somehow? I haven't driven it a lot, but I figured I'd driven it enough to get everything flowing.
