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

cool coolant. What is the best way for me to drain my radiator and are there any specific tools required to do so?

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!

I understood this to be a do-it-yourself service? No? Why?

How would YOU flush the radiator? A do-it-yourselfer would either do it WRONG or ILLEGALLY unless he is RICH and stupid enough.
