Right. Going to attempt a flush and replace tomorrow, as it's a good inch and a half below min level, and the fluid in the expansion tank looks a bit murky (pretty sure it was pink!)
So a couple of questions please:
How much coolant does the CF2 twin spark engine hold, so how much do I need to buy?
Is there an easy way of flushing the system or do i need some special tool for removing ridiculous shaped clips?
Should I run the garden hose through the system to clear it out?
Living in Scotland, the water up here is very soft and pure. Am I ok to use that instead of bothering with distilled/de-ionised water?
Thanks in advance.
P.S My car's a GTV but I searched for this thread, hence it being in the 147 lounge
