Well its winter time CHANGE your coolant

Just a reminder.... you should change it before winter gets here. I change mine every november~ its easy and cheap, while you are at it check your belts and other such items. You would be amazed what crap i see in my coolant afte only a year (especially for guys with aluminum heads/blocks)

No.

Fluid swap planned for spring when port work gets done and I change out some stock stuff. So there

Re: Well its winter time CHANGE your coolant

Im bad, never changed mine yet & Ive had my car 3.5 years! I used to change it on my 5.0 all the time. Never tried it on my car yet. Are the plugs gernerally in the same spot?

Re: Well its winter time CHANGE your coolant

I dont think I have gone a full year without doing something that requires draining my coolant and/or taking off the radiator. But my new 29" radiator is coming soon, so I need to do some cutting to make it fit, lol.

Re: Well its winter time CHANGE your coolant

so this is going to seem like a retarded question... but where exactly is the plug on the 99? is it under the actual radiator, or is it in the plastic thingy that hold the coolant?

Re: Well its winter time CHANGE your coolant

there's a plug on the far front passenger corner, on the bottom of the car. It's a little plastic plug, and I believe it's white... Warning, when you unscrew it, fluid will come out... and then don't forget to remove your other caps, they'll hold negative pressure on the system

Re: Well its winter time CHANGE your coolant

I changed mine today very easy... drain the old and clean out the overflow bottle then fill up the radiator and put the cap on, fill up the overflow bottle and turn the car on... wait... watch.. and fill as needed for a few cylcles... thats it.. under 20 bucks.
