Re: How do you install a new coolant reservoir?
When you pull the hoses, some of the coolant will leak out. What you do is after you're done replacing the tank, refill it.
Or better, take this as a warning, pull all the hoses and replace them, and put a fresh charge of distilled water and good quality antifreeze in.
335K miles on original motor and tranny (only motor work 2 x LIM replacement), Monroe SensaTrac struts front and back (new at approx. 300K miles), and Alero discs in back. LS fogs added with custom wiring. HID high beams, HIR low and halogen fogs. Raybestos Pro Grade front rotors and Bendix D747 ceramic pads on front.
Addendum: Rest in peace. Surge tank blew, motor overheated, I think she's lived a long and useful life.
