I suspect all you guys with the "it's real easy" comments have V8s with a more traditional setup for the cooling system. : )

No, the coolant has not been changed or flushed since the car was new. It was already on my to-do list to get it flushed. I don't see how air can have gotten into the system.

Can anyone who has done this work on an LLT chime in about this job? Thanks!

Apparently I failed reading comprehension. Multiple times.

Sounds like a real pain in the neck. Good luck!
