Re: coolant service interval.?
Just replaced the fluid in my 03 LT.
Removed the water/oil pump due to an oil weep.
Noticed the refill capacity was 2.64 qts (plus amount in reservoir) in a few threads and in my Clymer manual. It also states the total capacity as 3.1 qts and .63 in reserve tank.
I put a little over 3 qts in the radiator spout during my refill.
I'm guessing about .46 qt remains in the pump area after a normal system drain.
During my next flush, I'll probably fill/drain with distilled water a only couple times.
Then the final fill, add 1.6 qts of straight coolant and top off with water.
Probably not a big deal, but it is almost a half qt of a 3 qt system that's not getting flushed.
Just a heads up.
