ECS was kind enough to take back the vacuum filler.

FCP Euro and ECS have been extremely helpful.

sounds like there is still air in the system. takes a long time to bleed this car correctly. I've never used the vacuum method and it's been fine, just keep doing it.

It's good to know you got it worked out. Keep a close eye on the coolant gauge for the next week or two to be sure you did fully bleed the system.

It's not clear to me why the term "ghetto" bleeding system is used--the method works. If you follow the Bentley manual, and if you raise the front of the car, that is the method that works best; it's not "ghetto."

The ECS tool is the solution to a problem that doesn't exist. According to your experience, it isn't a solution at all, since it didn't work. It's good to hear ECS took it back.
