I had zero issues using the product. I purchased the concentrated gallon of Dex-Cool and diluted it with water to a 50/50 concentration. After mixing the two together, I filled my radiator and filled the funnel. I then started my truck, cranked up the heat to high and waited. Throughout the process I periodically squeezed the upper radiator hose to help circulate the coolant and remove air bubbles. I continued to top off the coolant as it continued to disperse throughout the engine. Once I no longer saw any air bubbles in the coolant and the coolant leveled out, I topped off the reservoir and took it for a drive. No more leaks and runs great.
