|krazyk||To the OP: If you want to do another coolant system repair/flush/refill and don't want to have lifelong scars from 3rd degree burns, get a Uview Airlift system. Works amazingly well and is worth the money. Glad you weren't injured.|

I will say this I wasn't worried about anything coming out because I couldn't see a coolant line (I wish these things were clear) when it popped off some did get on me but to my surprise it didn't burn like what I thought 200F would. A lot more would have gotten on me if I didn't have the sound insulation that diverted it forward and to the passenger side.
After more than 2 hours of sitting I went to top it off and when I undid the cap almost all the coolant in the reservoir drained out so the bubble is starting to work its way out. Also my upper radiator hose sounds like it has some air in it well.... I have a new project for tomorrow now.

|Kevinx||Am I the only one that feels the athe OP is incredibly lucky to not have scalded himself. The do not open hot on the cap is no joke. That cap should have hissEd for a solid couple minutes to relieve pressure.|

I'm guessing that you didn't lose nearly as much as it appeared. Spills are like that. The last beer that I spilled was like a million ounces.
Drive it for a bit. Let it cool. Release the pressure. Add coolant if necessary. Drive it more. Hard. Let it cool. Repeat as needed.
...and, for heaven's sake, don't ever do what you did again (without videotaping).

|nighthawk285||The air escaped when you opened the cap and blew coolant everywhere.....might consider a new degas cap too while you're in the area, sounds like it wasn't relieving pressure very well|
