Coolant drain/flush


Recommended Posts

Hi Andy,


This better not be one of those 9 pagers! :lol:


The easiest way is to pull the hose off the bottom of the radiator on the right bottom corner. Have a fairly good size pan ready for the coolant once the hose comes off. Then when it stops flowing blow down through the coolant tank on top 4-5 times really hard or use a compressor and help seal the tank opening with a rag. Almost all coolant will be vacated. Don't even worry about the low point drain on the water pump. It isn't needed to do a good job and you can't access it any way. Put the hose back on and re-fill with about 2/3 of a gal of a 50-50 mix. The whole process should take about 15 minutes.
