    Coolant Drain and Fill Procedure (taken from http://www.ferrarichat.com/partsandservice/308RadiatorDrainFill/ )
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Place car on jack stands.

    Open the expansion tank, thermostat bleed valve (brass bolt), as well as the radiator bleed valve (brass thumb screw).

    There are two places where radiator fluid needs to be drained; from the radiator area and then from the engine block.

    To drain coolant from the radiator:

    v Remove the 1 x 2 metal panel on the underside towards the front of the car. Removal of this place reveals the main radiator coolant lines, the heater hose connection, and the brake system-proportioning valve.

    v Place a catch pan under the radiator coolant lines.

    v Loosen the hose clamps for the lower radiator return line. Place an object (screw driver) between the hose and the metal line so coolant will drain from the line. This may take ~ 20 minutes.

    v When done, tighten the hose clamps.

    To drain coolant from the engine block:

    v Remove the passenger-side tire.

    v Remove passenger-side fiberglass wheel well

    v On the rear-bank side of the engine, the engine-block petcock valve (or plug in some cases) is positioned below and between the #1 and #2 exhaust ports. If the petcock valve has been replaced with a plug, try a 15 mm hex wrench.

    v Cut a 2-liter bottle in half. Using the top part of the bottle, attach 2 of a 1 diameter hose with a hose clamp to the bottle.

    v Place the 2-liter bottle under the petcock with the bottle drain hose emptying into a catch pan.

    v Open the petcock to drain the engine block.

    v When done, tighten the petcock valve.

    Fill Procedure:

    When refilling, there is a routine you should follow.

    v Pour coolant into the expansion tank.

    v The radiator air valve will be reached first and the new coolant will 'pee' on your front trunk.

    v Close the radiator bleed valve.

    v Continue filling the system with coolant until the thermostat valve begins to pee.

    v Close the thermostat bleed valve.

    v Continue to fill the system until the expansion tank is filled with fluid 6cm below the expansion tank neck.

    Remember to check coolant levels and for leaks once car has been started and run.

    icon, radiator cap is based on size. if it still fits the size of the new top. then it's still ok.

    narinig ko na din kasi to before and they mentioned this to me when I had my radiator repaired. Tawag nila sa mounting is "borloloy" pala.

    how many orings meron sa radiator drain plug, yung nasa ilalim. 1 lang sa akin. It's either I lost an oring or kailangan ng ireplace, tumutulo dun sa drain mismo.
