    That is a filling funnel, not a tool for bleeding. Perhaps you two are just speaking past each other. It burps on its own with the funnel.

    It depends on the system. In 25 years of owning and maintaining my Supra I never once had to burp it and a look at the cooling system should make the reason for that obvious. Other cars (my Delorean is a good example) must not only be burped but often use a full time bleeder line. Again, a look at the system configuration tells why.

    When I say burp I am talking about walking away while it is running so the air comes out. And no chance of spill over while over filling. Because I went looking for a gravy job from the dispatcher.

    Get a vacuum refiller. It's faster. And gets all the air out in 1 go.

    Well marking a year on this post. Seems to be heated debate on filling method for the coolant, and strayed from the topic =X Been out of town for work and haven't had the time to give some TLC to the Supra.

    Hvyman - I actually did it with that method of vacuum refilling. So I verified there wasn't any 'leak' issues.

    Everyone else - Yeah It's worth a try to drain and do a vacuum test on the system. I drove it for the last month (been a few months sitting) and I have bigger issues with SOME white smoke and what sounds to be an exhaust leak at the block. Problems never ending... =/

    That Evans coolant is basically just straight antifreeze, anyway. At least, that's what the chemical label suggests.

    Yeah, it does look that way. Though it is running a bit hotter, I don't know if it's just cause from other factored (problems) that lead up to it.

    Evans' boast is that the boiling point is much higher than 50/50, without the water issue causing corrosion over time. My concern is heat transfer and is it good enough. I have not seen a lot of data on people changing and solving an over heat issue. Many issues on the internet are engine swaps with the original cooling system, and the owners looking for a solution when they can't just stick an over sized unit in place of the original. They often end up at Royal Purple Ice and Water Wetter from Redline.

    Water wetter works great. 50/50 coolant water and water wetter is what I use in race cars.

    Evans is pretty much straight antifreeze. It's got a very high boiling point, just like antifreeze.
