Re: Coolant change?
I haven't done a coolant change on a TS, only Boxer engines so far. But on the Boxers there is a drain plug. I wonder if this is on the TS 's also?
If you want to do a really good flush, empty the system as best you can, and then fill with soft-water (get 5L of water in a shop for very cheap) and then start the car and let it run till the fan comes on. Turn off immediatly.
There are tricks to filling, I won't go into them now, unless you want to hear them.
But after doing the water fill, let it cool, and drain fully again, and then refill with the correct volumes of water/coolant.
