Drain all old antifreeze from the cooling system to remove any rust and deposits. Be sure and use an adequate drain pan, along with shop towels, oil dry and gloves to minimize the mess.

Flush the system with a radiator cleaner and water to remove stubborn rust and corrosive deposits. Use an inexpensive flush and fill kit to make the job easier.

Fill with 50-70% antifreeze and water mixture. A funnel should be used to prevent splashing, and a tester can be used to ensure proper mixture.
