How to fill the coolant system after a water pump change

Asked by Mar 19, 2014 at 01:15 PM about the 2003 Dodge Dakota 4 Dr SXT 4WD Quad Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just change the water pump on my 3.9L V6 03 Dakota SXT. The reservoir is full though it only took 1.5 gallons to do so. I have ran the engine till the temp got hot and opened the cap to allow air and steam to escape, but the reservoir level has never changed. What am I missing?

You shouldn't remove the cap when running.
