Block Drain Plug

Hi Jjad, thank you for the reply. The post you directed me to seems to suggest that removing the block drain plug is more hassle than it`s worth. The problem I have is that draining the system from the bottom hose only removes about 2 litres of fluid. To get a 50/50 mix of new coolant I need to somehow get more out. Am I the only one to have this problem? Any suggestions please. Thank you.

Cheers Simon.

Have you tried flushing it out with a hose? It sounds like the dirty coolant is still in your engine, so you need to get it out somehow.

Hi Jjad, how exactly do I flush the system with a hosepipe? Do I need to remove the thermostat and flush from there?

Cheers Simon.

Hi Simon, good question! I've not done it, but your idea sounds sensible. Try doing a search on this forum - it's probably been discussed before.

Cheers
