Here's the procedure .
DRAINING COOLING SYSTEM
WARNING: DO NOT REMOVE THE CYLINDER
BLOCK DRAIN PLUGS OR LOOSEN THE RADIATOR
DRAINCOCK WITH SYSTEM HOT AND
UNDER PRESSURE. SERIOUS BURNS FROM
COOLANT CAN OCCUR.
1. DO NOT remove radiator cap first. With engine
cold, raise vehicle on a hoist and locate radiator
NOTE: Radiator draincock is located on the right/
lower side of radiator facing to rear of vehicle.
2. Attach one end of a hose to the draincock. Put the
other end into a clean container. Open draincock
and drain coolant from radiator. This will empty the
coolant reserve/overflow tank. The coolant does not
have to be removed from the tank unless the system
is being refilled with a fresh mixture. When
tank is empty, remove radiator cap and continue
draining cooling system.
Refilling procedure :
1. Tighten the radiator draincock and the cylinder
block drain plug(s) (if removed).
CAUTION: Failure to purge air from the cooling
system can result in an overheating condition and
severe engine damage.
2. Remove the cooling system bleed plug from the
radiator upper hose inlet housing. Fill cooling system
with the antifreeze mixture (Refer to LUBRICATION
& MAINTENANCE/FLUID TYPES -
DESCRIPTION), until coolant begins coming out of
the cooling system bleed hole. Install the cooling
system bleed plug. Fill radiator to top and install
radiator cap. Add sufficient coolant to the reserve/
overflow tank to raise level to FULL mark.
3. With heater control unit in the HEAT position, operate
engine with radiator cap in place.
4. After engine has reached normal operating temperature,
shut engine off and allow it to cool. When
engine is cooling down, coolant will be drawn into
the radiator from the reserve/overflow tank.
5. Add coolant to reserve/overflow tank as necessary. Only add coolant to the reserve/overflow tank when the
engine is cold. Coolant level in a warm engine will be higher due to thermal expansion. To purge the
cooling system of all air, this heat up/cool down cycle (adding coolant to cold engine) must be performed three
times. Add necessary coolant to raise tank level to the FULL mark after each cool down period.
