So, I finally have some time to start going over some basic maintenance on the Fiero we have bought last month. (Its been parked till I had time)

I have read about the burping procedures and such with the coolant system. I dont have that issue yet but just want to test the coolants freeze levels as it is starting to dip rather low at night now. Where is the best place to test this at? At the radiator or at the engine? Or Both?

at the engine, removing the radiator cap will result in a loss of coolant.

Thanks! I actually have that bookmarked in case I have to drain and or flush the system due to the coolant being to weak.

As I figured, will be flushing the system as it can take a freeze situation but want to ensure its a lot stronger.
