Re: Coolant levels


I have been considering changing my own coolant but on first glance the block drain plug looks very hard to get at. Has anyone successfully taken this plug in and out? If so, what type of sealant did you use on the thread?

Regards,

Andrew H

Re: Coolant levels


This elusive block drain plug, mine's invisible...even with my glasses on emoticon
The only 14mm bolts I can see are 3 x on a bracket that has the axle pass through it, and another just above and towards the passenger side holding another bracket on (to the block) emoticon

Done 2 flushes so far as per the manual, which is empty system via radiator drain plug --> replace and fill rad --> run engine to warm/hot --> let cool --> drain again. Continue till only clear water comes out.
But I'm heading west this friday, and at the rate the system is clearing, it'll be fri fortnight emoticon lol

you can take the intake rad hose off, insert a garden hose in the engine side. take off the bottom hose connection. make sure you have a big enough container to catch the old stuff... turn on the water... when you see water coming out you have flushed it out.

it works for me...


Also tried this because it's been sucessful in previous cars, but nothing coming out the bottom hose, only overflowing back through the top hose emoticon

HELP please

Re: Coolant levels


Thanks Kev, that's a better detail than the other pic from the manual emoticon

*EDIT*

Is this it?...If it is, mine seems to be one of them adjustable bolts with the nut to lock it down when adjusted. It also appears to be 11mm, though I couldn't get my (off-set) ring spanner to go on, a 12mm seemed to sloppy!

Re: Coolant levels


Hi There, I would like to drain the coolant . The drain bolt that is on the engine block does it require a sealing compound to make it water tight ? If yes what compound should be used
many thanks
Barry
