This is why I hypothesize they damaged the radiator. I learned about special GM dexcool working on a Bolt, it requires de-ionized water premixed with the Dexcool. Part number 12378390. I remember because I had it ordered from a local GM dealer, and they sent another type of dexcool with a different part number, so we had to exchange it to get 12378390. I just checked the Bolt GM FSM to confirm that part number. it says "DEX-COOL (Premix 50/50 with Deionized Water)" with that specific part number.

Pontiac Slostices same ordeal, DDM works has a fuel filter kit for the LNF: DDMWorks LNF Fuel Filter Kit

Looks like it is based off the standard GM QD so it would go inline on the LE5 too, not sure if LSJ use this QD at the rail. Can probably build a kit yourself if that is the case

I don't see how they would have damaged it though unless they over pressurized the system, but even then the weak point there is internal battery connections and the sections themselves. Yep that's the stuff it needs, just wanted to make sure you got the right one. Its bad that even some techs cant wrap their head around not using regular coolant and tap water mix then wonder why the car keeps coming back with isolation codes.

I got a new set when Nike decided to stop making clubs and put everything on clearance. Got a whole set (4-AW) for $250. Brand new. they have been great for the money.
