Check condition of hoses. If cracking or swelling, replace hoses.

Fill reservoir with factory fluid to proper level. Start engine and let run for 1 minute. Shut engine off and let sit for 2-3 minutes. Recheck fluid level.

Push nipple into vent hole in cap. Route the vent house to a low point in the engine compartment. Make sure the hose is away from belts and hot components in the engine compartment. Secure vent hose with zip ties. Do not over tighten zip ties causing the vent tube t be restricted.
