first drain the radiator by loosening the pet **** or by disconnecting the lower radiator hose, flush with water from a hose. disconnect heater core hoses and flush that with a garden hose. put every thing back together looks in the owners manual for fluids and capacities to find out how much fluid your system holds add half that in coolant then keep adding water till full. to bleed the system you can leave the radiator cap off while running for about 15min to get all the air out of the system. and yes coolant will over flow out once in a while, while bleeding the air out.

Thanks for the information. Is it safe to drain the old coolent into the sewer system or should it be disposed some other way. If the later, where should it be taken?

Thanks.

i have to tell you the legal mumbo jumbo no don't put it in the sewer, you can kill alot of the bacteria at the treatment plant, if it is costly enough they will hunt you down. it happened to an auto school a buddy of mine went to.

just try to collect as much of it as you can when draining. then you can call your local fire dept for where to dispose of the waste at. some auto shops will take it but they may charge for taking it cause it costs them money to get antifreeze taken away. but they get money for used oil so you should never pay an auto shop for taking used oil
