How to remove small amount of coolant?
After learning that I need a special additive, I went to the near by dealer and got a bottle.
The instructions say I must remove 125 ml of coolant; I managed to remove about the half from the top using a syringe but not 125 ml. Subaru's radiator cap doesn't have a strsight
access to the radiator, so the tip of the syringe didn't reach further. (I poured half the bottle anyway.)
This time, I would repeat the same steps to add the additive in two batches. But for the next time, and for those who are going to do this, I wonder if anybody has a clever idea how to take out 125 ml of the coolant from the top. (I am guessing using the drain plug would be very messy and would drain too much of the coolant.)
