    WARNING: DO NOT REMOVE THE COOLING SYSTEM PRESSURE CAP OR OPEN THE RADIATOR DRAINCOCK, WHEN SYSTEM IS HOT AND UNDER PRESSURE BECAUSE SERIOUS BURNS FROM COOLANT CAN OCCUR.

    To drain cooling system move temperature selector for heater to full heat with engine running (to provide vacuum for actuation) Without removing radiator pressure cap and with system not under pressure, Shut engine off and open draincock - Typically, The coolant reserve tank should empty first, then remove radiator pressure cap. The Drain Cock is located on the bottom Right (passenger) side of the radiator. Turn counterclockwise to drain. Do not turn drain cock more that 1/2 turn or damage may occure.

    NOTE: To open draincock on vehicle equipped with 2.5L engine, use a 3/8 inch drive extension 3" long, a 19mm socket with universal
