Inlet Manifold Gasket done today! Some of those nuts were a b**ch to get at and get off! New black gasket put on and system filled with coolant. The system only took 2.5L of coolant which had me puzzled for a good hour, trying to locate the air lock and get rid of it by squeezing/ tapping all the pipes and then suddenly realized that I hadn't drained the engine so the remaining 3L is probably the water that had been sitting at the bottom of the engine after the system drain!
If anyone can confirm how much coolant sits at the bottom of the engine that would be a weight off my mind! Hopefully I've now solved my slow coolant leak, there was also a bit of oil mixing up in the coolant so I'm preying this may solve that aswel
