Re: [DML] Flushing Cooling System Questions?

I had wondered the same thing the first year I had my car. Those plugs just 
would not come out.

I don't know if anyone else does it this way but what I do is to remove the 
hose I have going from the bleed screw to the overflow tank and direct that 
to a large bucket (I have one of Toby's bleed systems). Then I start the 
engine allowing the waterpump to do the work while I add distilled water to 
the overflow tank. Once the coolant runs clear (after the thermostat opens) 
I add coolant so that it mixes with the distilled water already in the 
system. Once I add enough so the ratio is right I put the hose back, let it 
run for a few min and check the ratio.

This way does create more "coolant water" that has to be disposed of but is 
very easy and limits the amount of air entering the system.
