Usually you would fill the radiator first, that is the ideal way to fill the coolant.  The coolant usually wont suck from the resevoit until the engine warms up, at least that's how older cars work.  Good thing you posted that, how many have checked their coolant since?

anyone think to poke a weap hole into the thermostat and clock it up to let the fluid preheat the back side and fill the thing with out waiting for it to open..  there is even a mark on the ring to show you where to do it.

Can't trust those little guys! haha the new one stuck closed on the fresh start motor.
had to give it the pump hose and tap with pointy thing to get it to open. he had no weap hole. and it was critical cam breakin to boot..

Sounds like you guys had a super sucessful event with just a few speed bumps!!
Great work you guys, sorry I missed it :wink:

maybe pool a coffee give card for Chas?? Its the little things with heart that make the diff :P

Chas,
Sorry about the mess on Saturday...I owe you alot ;)  (I think you know what I'm talking about) I'll hit you up next week. I really appreciated your assistance and time and effort and all that...you're like the guru on the 1.8T. Thanks for all your help.
I know I bummed some coolant :( . Sorry guys, shoulda come prepped. That was my bad. I'll make sure you all (Pat, Chas) get reimbursed.
I've also not gone through my toolbox yet...I know I didn't borrow too many tools, but I seem to have collected many at my station. Don't know what was up with that. I'll go through it all when I get home and post anythying that's out of place...
Once again....DON'T LEAVE CHAS!

Hot Daaaaamn! You guys were busy on Saturday! I wanted to come help out/watch, but from the looks of it I probably would have just been in the way.. sheesh. Now I kind of wish my car was at 60K like all of you. *sniff*
Anyway, bummed I couldn't make it, but glad you all had a good time and were so productive! I had to work on Saturday, paying my dues I guess. Hopefully I can make the next GTG.
MWJD?

Tool check,
I believe I have:
Chas' 6" 3/8" drive extension and what I believe is his 6mm allen? (it doesn't match mine- I already have one)
Win's 10/11mm angled box end wrench

I'm missing:
10mm open/box wrench

Thanks JR, that angled wrench is mine and I think I may have your 10mm open/box wench.  Who makes it?

You have to looooove your tools.  Spend time with them.  Shower with them, take them with you on vacation.  Oh sorry, I was somewhere else for a minute.  LOL! :roll:
