Default Re: Coolant port on intake manifold

I gotta ask... why would you want to fuss with that hose?

PS, in regards to this:

"... or is the engine made to run the coolant through the engine?"

Yes, of course the engine is made to have coolant running through it.
From my observation it looks like once the cap reaches pressure and releases hot coolant it sends it to the intake manifold and runs it through the motor so instead of sending it through the motor I was thinking of just letting it drain out.
