    The You tube video has some good info, and some useless stuff. I suppose I should have flushed the system properly but I just refilled it. There's also the problem of there being air in the system. When the engine idles, the heat blows cold. I'm going to give it a few days to see if it takes care of itself before I try to do anything.

    Beware unhooking the hoses to the thermostat housing. The smaller hose will spill coolant all over if you're not careful. I wasn't careful.

    If I was going to do it again, I think I would have flushed the system with some de-minerlized water before replacing the antifreeze with new, just for a sense of having done a proper repair and maintenance.

    If you're wondering where the nut came from, I was missing one of the fasteners for the splash shield. Luckily, I can reach up through the hole for the oil filter and hold it while I install the bolt. One of the bolts for the thermostat is missing in that pic too.
