Thanks for the info, this is pretty much what the book says and I get that. My question was about the large side [fender] and the normal level of that side of the tank and how to add to that side. After looking closer I seen that you have to fill the tank to the rim of the filler hole to allow the fluid to overflow into the large side of the tank, a very slow process. I was curious of what the normal level of that side of the tank is.... My next thing will be, you guessed it, where is the coolant going and why do I have to add coolant.., EGR or HG, [no visible leaks] what a great choice for a $70,000 truck with 60K on it. My LBZ went 200k with no issues, should have thought twice about trading it in... Thanks again for the info... Warranty time...
