Re: Coolant question
If you want to flush it dump everything all out and fill it up with a 50/50 mix of distilled water and white vinegar. Fill it up and bleed the system. Let it come up to full operating temp so the thermostat opens and then you can shut it off and let it sit for about 2 hours or so.
The vinegar will help dissolve any minerals that may have accumulated, and its bio-degradable unlike the nasty chemical based flushes you can buy. After its sat for a bit dump out the vinegar mix and run through a couple flushes of clean water until all the vinegar is rinsed out. Then top it off with whatever coolant product you are going to use.
