    280I radiator

    Hello All

    Does the 280I radiator have a drain plug? What is the best way to flush and fill?
    Thanks
    John

    Pulled the bottom Radiator hose to drain and filled from the overflow tank. The radiator fill would not work because it became air bound.

    Pump the bottom hose as you fill it.

    Thanks Wayne
    I pumped the bottom hose, let it warm up and it was still air bound. It would not fill from the radiator cap. As soon as I started filling the overflow tank it filled up even though the car was not running. British Magic.

    Can't quite figure this out.
    In various sections of this site, you seem to like to partially quote, often cut and paste, from previous posts for your highly informative and helpful response.

    Post #2 from Feathers, first line, you copied the first five words including the capitalized Radiator.

    Must be some hidden purpose.

    thanks for the post.
