And another one dies of a coolant leak.

Croatan, I am sorry to hear that.

Do you know how and when the coolant leak began?

I do not know how it began, but I believe it started a couple months ago...

I would like to know the following:

Did you or the PO perform the scheduled 5 year coolant flush or a coolant replacement?

Good question Racer. I assume you are wondering if this was a result of not getting all the air out after a coolant change, causing hot spots in head, cracking, etc. I am very nervous about this with my upcoming TB service.

Did you ever work out a surefire method of getting all the air out?

Doc444, yes I did get all the air out.

I installed a temporary 5/8" diameter Prestone cooling system Flushing "T" at the very top and in front of the yellow oil filler tube, where the 5/8" rubber hose meets the metal tube that goes around to the FCV.

I used the "T" as a vent, I unscrewed the cap to let the air out after a fifteen minute drive. I saw the coolant level drop down from the expansion tank right away and I jumped for joy when I saw it happening. What a relief. Just measure how much coolant comes out and make sure that the same amount goes in.

When the cooling system was full again, I then removed the Prestone coolant flush "T" and brought the vehicle back to stock. I didn't need to splice the OEM coolant hose, I just used a small piece of 5/8 coolant hose that I had lying around.
