Re: Coolant levels
This elusive block drain plug, mine's invisible...even with my glasses on
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)
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 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
