to burp the coolant, fill your sled up with coolant as much as you can with it sitting level, lift the front of the sled as high as you can get it so all the air in the coolers can run to the front of the sled and out the highest point which should be your coolant cap... and if your lucky, your sled might even have a air bleed right on your heat exchanger in the back compartment... put the sled back down, leave the cap open and run your sled for a couple minutes, after that, fill the over flow all the way up, it doesnt hurt to push a little back out for the first time, that way when it cools off, youll have the right amount, and whalllahhhhh, sled burped ahaha

Just got done doing my 91 EXT,I also squeezed the coolant hose and ran the engine several short times topping off the coolant each time.Feel the heat exchangers,with both heating up and coolant full you know you have her pretty good.

Air pockets trapped in the system,if in the cylinders you get hot spots,trapped air in the heat exchangers will inhibbit water flow. Air pockets and low water level = cooked engine!! Leaks acure only if something is not sealed. Just take your time,pretty easy to do just dont fill it up and run the heck out of it.
