2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Question: It is past time for me to do a flush on my radiator. I know I have to use Dex-co

cool coolant. What is the best way for me to drain my radiator and are there any specific tools required to do so? -
Answer 1
I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU HAVE HEARD OR WILL BE TOLD BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE DEX-COOL!! NOW IS AS GOOD A TIME AS ANY TO CHANGE THE COOLANT. THE FIRST THING I DID WAS TO CHANGE THAT S TUFF IN MY CHEVY. AFTER WARRANTY WAS OUT. NOW WHAT ENGINE IS IN YOUR TRUCK SO WE CAN HELP WITH DRAIN & REFILL. YES IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE! -
