Coolant change

Sorry to be pain.

Picking up so some coolant (below). Will add 50/50 with water. Seen people stating to top up high point, and AST. Seen overs say fill high point and the one to the left.

I have the cone that fits on the cap, so can run it and let the air out from the high point. Just once i am done, which two do i make sure are to the top.

Fill the overflow bottle to the half point of the dip stixk first. Then Fill the system with both caps off until the air separation tank ( right side on the intercooler) is filled to the top then put on the rad cap with the spring on it. Then put your funnel on the filler neck (left side cap on engine) and fill and vleed from there. Heard it helps if you have the car slighlty angled up at the front to bleed out air. It idle funny till the throttle body is bleed and filled with coolant just so you know. Bleed as much bubbles out as possible. Drive it around then park it over night. With it bone cold check the level and top it off at the filler neck.
