On ours, the manual says to open the bleed valve on the turbo until it starts coming out there and then open the vent plug on the coolant tank. We've found 2 probelms with this:

1. the angle of the engine causes the plug on the tank to be above the cap so it floods at the same time!

2. we still found it was thirsty after BRIEFLY running it and then re-checking the level. make sure it's cooled off or else you will be in for some trouble!

I (Gabe) will call Em to see if she can take a picture of the manual for you. I wont be home until saturday
