    agree 100%.
    after i added a similar tool to my arsenal, i cant even comprehend how or why i ever did it the old school way.

    except for routine maintenance, no one ever "plans" to need to bleed the coolant system. the next time you need to do it, youll be in the same perdicament, and spend another 2+ hours over the course of days trying to get it right. I value my time high, and those 2 hours would pay for the tool.

    if it helps lessen the blow, its not a land rover specific tool. most of them come with different adapters so they fit almost any car. have another car you maintain yourself? use it on that too.

    You said the back isn't getting hot here is the LR3 Landrover official procedure, I imagine you use that procedure after bleeding the various lines.

    Based on story:

    I didn't notice a "big" burp but apparently just enough. I definitely had to fill a couple more inches of fluid but I might have lost that during the bleeding process.

    What size adaptor do you use? I can't seem to get it tight with the 42mm
