    Time for the annual Coolant string

    Well....had the GTO flushed and filled yesterday. I love those B&M machines. Pop the top radiator hose off....hook it up....idle the engine and the car comes up to temp....turn the heater on full blast...and watch the old stuff come out in one bucket and the fresh distilled water/Dexcool going in.....total flush....5 minutes and not a drop on the ground or in the engine bay.....
    So....fellow GTO dudes.....you flushing your coolant this fall?

    where'd you go, and how much?

    I've never done it, never had a car long enough to need it. Exactly what do I need to check on, before they attempt it?

    With 900 miles on the car, and a new motor being thrown in ! No, Sarge! No coolant.
