i never done it and i bought the prestone kit which i been reading that i dont need it but idk how to do it so if someone could chime in and explain to me how to do it.
I drained my SVT cooling system and only got maybe a gallon of brown liquid. Does opening the drain plug completely clear the system or does the thermostat prevent engine-side coolant from getting out?on the bottom right of the radiator (driver side) there is a drain plug
Getting ready to do mine. It's got 80k miles, so I guess it's time. I usually use one of those kits, but I'm not sure which hose to put that on, the heater hose going to the overflow tank? They recommend the hose coming from the firewall which is near impossible to get to. Also, did you remove the upper hose to flush it from? Thanks.I will not worry about leaving the flush overnight. You really should only run the engine like 20 minutes min with that inside. That is what the instructions say.
Also let the car heatup a little to normal operation that way the thermostat will open
and now you have access to the other coolant side.
Then let it cool down and buy a kit from Autozone that you can actually install in one of
the heater hoses and connect your garden hose and let it flow until from the radiator
the water come's out looking clear.
**please let it cool down before runnign cold water as you can warp the heads..*
