    Default 307 coolant capacity

    Hi All,

    About to replace coolant on my 307 HDi Touring 2.0L. Just wondering what the capacity is?
    I have looked in the book that came with the car and there is no mention of it. Interestingly, in the coolant section there is a note that says "Coolant does not need to be changed"??

    Cheers
    Michael

    I have had a look in the Haynes w/shop manual I have and it states for the 2.0lt HDi, approx. 8.2lts. If any more specs needed, pleased to help.

    Default Hint.....

    Read the manual.......

    There are two bleed points that need to be opened during the fill process and opened again during the warm up.

    Tip.....Have a snug fitting pipe into the overflow tank, so as the fill level is well above the top of the motor, (I have a section of thick walled clear silicone rubber tube that works a treat)......The higher the better...at least 1 1/2 foot. You will have to drop the level once full and all the air traps bled. (I find a big syringe with a large diameter long catheter works for the level correction).

    Thanks Gamma. the only manual I have is the one that came with the car. Pretty useless.

    Cheers

    Hi Gamma, in the process of changing the coolant. Measured what came out which was just over 5 litres. Cant find the bleed points though. The picture in the manual does not help. Could you point me towards where they are.

    Thanks, Lockwood116

    When I changed the coolant in my 306, I chucked a fair amount of plumbers tape around the thread of a cut open coke bottle which then fit snugly into the filler tank hole and didn't leak. This worked beautifully as a header tank. As for the bleed screws, they are crucial! Not sure if the filler tank on the 307 is the same...
