Had to drain the whole coolant due to replacement of a split hose...what is the coolant capacity of 1560 cc HDI Citroen C4 Picasso with DV 6 C engine so I can replace it with %50 antifreeze mixture ? Techician says I do not have to bleed the system, just do not fit the expansion cap for a few minutes after filling up and starting the engine , also there is a thin pipe from the top of the radiator to the expansion tank for self bleeding the air ? Thanks

Might be easier to buy ready made-up coolant, including anti-freeze and anti-rust ingredients....
In the 'olden days' you'd fill up the system, let it run with the cap off, and a header tank of a 2L lemonade bottle . Once the fan has kicked in a couple of times, then it should be ok... not always though - so needed a bleed. Then remove coolant until on max.
