Re: Changing Coolent
negative, and I need to get that done as well....
its easy though. Just jack up the car so its EVEN (rear not sitting down adn the front up in the air) use jack stands for that.
K now you need to open the radiator cap and then look on the passenger side of the bottom on the radiator for a while like plug, remove it and teh coolant will drain.
K now after it has all came out (you will see alum flake in it most likly) then put the cap back in and proceed to fill the radiator with coolant. When full You can put the cap back on and then proceed to put some coolant in the overflow jug (AFTER YOU DRAIN IT AND RINCE IT OUT, it gets black junk in it so take it out and wash it out with hot water, it will start to come off just rinse it a bunch)
once you have some coolant about half way filled in the bottle start the car, wait a bit... it will then open up and cycle, when it does be on your toes and KEEP THE OVERFLOW JUG Filled cuz it will suck the coolant though. Dont overfill it, keep it about half way~
it will eventually be full... you can remove the bolt in front of the upper intake and to vent out any trapped air in the lines (its the highest point on the system)
after its done then simply keep an eye on it and add a bit when needed.
dont do this while the car is hot... and use premix coolant (tap water is not good to use)
