View Full Version : Coolant question...

Hi, so i replaced my old thermostat with a new one and during the process the old coolant just drained all out.
I was wondering if anyone knows how to do a proper flush or like what type of techniques are used to wash out the lines before filling it up with new coolant
I have 3 leters of G12 coolant, i was wondering do i mix this with 50% distilled water and 50% of this g12 coolant or how does that go?

Thanks for any help

I just followed that diy yesterday, and it worked perfect (I found out that I had brown coolant so I had to do a complete flush, and everything is pink now!!)

so did you end up using the whole 1 Gallon of G12 coolant and you had to mix that with 1 Gallon of Distilled water?

Get another container. Mix the G12 50/50 with distilled water and then fill
