My coolant tank decided to crack yesterday while the car was on the dyno, spraying coolant everywhere. No Lotus or Toyota dealers in the area had any replacements on-site, so we resorted to removing the tank from my daily-driven 2002 Celica and putting it on the Lotus. Of course then we couldn't get all the air bubbles out and my car was overheating, so we weren't able to take advantage of the tuning session anyways.
Ah, the joys of owning a Lotus.
Many people use a vaccum system for doing there coolant changes for this reason, but not many diy'ers have access to one
