    Default Anti freeze/ engine flush.

    There is loads of crap in my anti freeze reservior, what the easiest way to:

    1) Drain the engine? Disconnect the Rad?
    2) Flush out the crap?
    3) What do I top up the antifreeze with is it the red one?

    tuesday should be fine..nextday delivery on monday = tuesday delivery....

    while you have the cambelt cover off it's an extra 4 bolts to take the waterpump off...it's exposed at the same time as the cambelt..


    you done a cambelt on a V6 before James?
