Hey guys-time to replace the coolant (i mean the antifreeze of course). I have been using the same liquid for years (dealer approved) - but i have been wondering-
usually when i do it i unplug the small drain plug on the bootom of the radiator-open the cap-and let the coolant drain for a few hours-and then i re-fill the system,drain the air bubbles-and thats it. I have done this a few times in the past-no problems.

but what about the old coolant thats still inside the engine? in the internal heater core? i guess it doesnt drain out.

How do i make sure that ALL of the coolant has been drained from the system before i fill the new coolant? any ideas?

Hi had timer,

everse flush the engine through the coolinsystem until the only water comes out. ou will need to ensure your heater is on to ensure yo gt rid of all the antifreeze.

Cheers, Chris.

hello mate.I dont need to flush the system- its not clogged or anything like that. it works fine. i simply want to make sure that ALL of the coolant will be out of the system.

Body Damage is Cool
Flushing the system has nothing to do with removing a clog it flushes out the old coolant. It could help if you have a clog but if you want all new coolant flush out the old.
