I just did a coolant drain & fill on my 2007 Honda 919.
I followed the Honda shop manual instructions to the letter.
I removed the radiator cap prior to draining at the water pump.
When I refilled the system it only took 2 qts. of coolant. The manual says the capacity is 3 qts.
I filled it at the radiator cap and ran the engine and blipped the throttle to remove air in the system.
I also drained and filled the reserve tank.
I drained all the old coolant into a 10 qt. bucket. I did not spill any.
Using a ruler and my best guesstimation, I got about 2.5 qts out of the system.
What could I have done wrong, if anything?
Why would it only take 2 qts. ?
Thanks for any answers or advice.
