Here is a link that includes the steps from Larry Bible. Let us know how this works for you. My indy did my water pump and replaced the coolant with green stuff. It's coming out.

Prestone and MB coolant contains ethylene glycol, which is considered bad for the environment. A lot of municipalities accept used coolant as part of their recycling program.

On the other hand, citric acid flush is okay on the ground.

please be aware of danger to animals

hello

i'm working on my 420 right now and i just loosened the upper rad hose. so my dog must stay in the office now until the floor is completey dry.

petroleum based products can kill animals. it's sweet and they are drawn to it.
