    So I was putting a skid plate on my sled....rookie mistake, poked a hole in the coolant line and lost most of the coolant. Replaced the hose and coolant so wondering how to bleed the system.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    First lift of the front as high as possible, then same thing with the back. Now start the sled, and do the same thing with each end up for 45 seconds to a minute. That should do the trick!

    Dont lift the back of the sled up just the front. Lifting the back end of the sled up will just force any air in the system to the back and make it harder to get out.

    1: Lift front, doesnt have to be crazy high just above the rear cooler height or 2 or so feet off ground
    2:fill coolant res until full
    3:Once it stops emptying and bottle is full start the sled and allow to idle until the level drops to below what its supposed to be
    4:shut sled off
    5:refill bottle and repeat until coolant bottle is full to correct level.
