How to change coolant in your vehicle?

  1. Open the radiator cap – Careful the liquid from this is extremely toxic to your dogs or cats.
  2. Find T Shaped bolt– Under the front view of the car look to the bottom of the radiator and find a T shaped bolt or small plug.
  3. Get 2 pans to capture the toxic liquids– The pails must be big enough to hold roughly five gallons.
  4. Place the pails beneath Radiator
  5. Allow the liquids to drain in to the pails.
  6. You also need to drain your engine block
  7. Instead of finding the plugs you can keep the drain cocks open
  8. Turn off the vehicle, close the drain cock, and fill the radiator and overfill part to the proper level
  9. Look out for air pockets
  10. Replace cap on the radiator
  11. Be sure to do this as often as needed.

  1. I know so little about cars, it’s not even funny. I thought it was interesting that these liquids are really toxic for cats and dogs, but I think that’s because they’re the only ones that will give it a taste test! I feel like I would make a huge mess doing this, so it was a good heads up about getting pails to catch the liquid. Thanks for the info.
