Just glancing at other people's posts, it sounds like I should do a
precautionary change-out of my coolant. The truck's a '97 Silverado 4x4 and
I've never changed the coolant but have added to it. That's going on 7
years and it sounds like changing it every 5 is better. The truck has 75k
Is flushing necessary?? Or do I just run the motor to open the thermostat,
shut it down, and drain it ...followed by filling at the radiator and
reservoir again (etc). I assume the radiator has a wing-nut type drain on
the bottom, right?
Seeing as how your Dex has been in there for about 3 years too long I'd
recommend draining the rad plus yanking both block drains to get it all out,
then refill with new Dex. Use DISTILLED water and install a new rad cap.
Thanks, Buddy. A Chevy's the only type of motor I can think of that I've
never worked on much. Of course, the reasons are obvious, right? LOL. I
like the one about Fords being cheaper to maintain because there are spare
parts all over the road...
