[DML] Re: How do you change the anti-freeze fluid in the Delorean?



There are several reasons everyone should replace their radiator with
a metal one. The origional is plastic and it gets old and brittle. The
end tanks leak where they crimp to the core. There is no drain. The
metal ones are 3 row so they are more efficient. About the only good
reason I can think of not to replace is the pain-in-the-neck little
fasteners that will break when you do it. It all has to be done from
underneath too. I also recomend replacing the plastic header bottle at
the same time and all of the hoses and belts if they are over 10 years
old. Anyway, to get the old stuff out just go to the lowest point and
loosen the hose clamp to let it out. Fill with water and flush several
times. Drain and refill with fresh anti-freeze.
