2.4 JTD Draining coolant?
Right just heard the weather forecast for tonight: -5 degrees.
And now remembered thinking when I changed the thermostat how very un-antifreezy my coolant was.
Car is still sitting on the drive waiting for other jobs and consequently has not been refilled with coolant since changing the stat and water pump. No battery on it either.
What's the quickest way to drain the remaining coolant out when I get home tonight? If memory serves, I remember noticing that the rad hoses join to a sort of plastic elbow at the rad, which seem to be clipped onto the rad outlets. And of course they've got those stupid hose clips on that you can't get off without extreme violence.
Don't want my block to crack or rad to burst overnight!
