to flush it undo your top rad hose and keep a water hose filling your rad let it run til it comes out clear turn off water let it pump remaining water out and top it off with premix or mix it yourself to your likings.

so when i shut the hose off will it keep pumping out all the water that is in the system or will there still be some in there? if not how do i get it all out? arnt you suppose to mix the antifreeze with distilled water? if so then what is left in the system is not distilled. and should i buy premixed coolant or stuff i got to mix? would cat coolant be ok to run?

Most of the non-distilled water should drain out if you give it time. I wouldn't think that what little non-distilled water is left in there would be a problem. As far as the reserve tank, you have to suck it out with a siphon or something similar.

after i flushed the system twice with water i can only seem to get 18 liters of antifreeze in? how much water would be left in the block after the flush? what about the reserve tank? how do you fill that? hot or cold?
