Wow, thanks. I guess I need to change my settings because I never got an email notification when you replied. That's exactly what I needed.

True.....many newer Hondas no longer have the air bleeds. You usually run it after you think it's full. Recheck it when it cools. Do this until it's stays full.

I did the drain and fill on my 05 LX a couple of months ago. Drained the radiator via the quick-release drain plug, refilled with the Honda premix, ran it, squeezed a bit of air out of the top radiator hose, topped it off and rinsed/filled the overflow tank. After running it the next day , it had sucked just a bit out of the overflow - but not much. No air pockets - very easy. Level has been stable since.

Nice step by step instructions, though I have a question. This doc says you need 1.32 gal of type 2 coolant, but I have to read a few times that people only put 1 gal of coolant when changing. How much coolant do I need for my 04 LX 4 cylinder?

Where would I dispose of used coolant (the right way)? It's toxic to animals. I know that auto parts stores regularly dump my used oil...

Check with some of the quickie lubes in your area. That is where mine goes (Jiffylube). They will usually take if for free but if not, offer a gift car purchase for an xmas gift?
