Re: replacing coolant
Don't know why the hell he reckons to run it with water for a week, I can't see the point in that.
Anyway, the cooling system is 15 litres. There's 5 litres in the block you can't get out. I think Ford suggest a 1 part coolant to 2 parts water (some people run half half though), so remove the lower radiator hose, let it drain, do it up, chuck in 5 litres of coolant for 33/66 or 7.5 litres for 50/50, then fill the over flow bottle to the full mark with water.
Run it with the heater open (set it to the hot setting) until the thermostat opens, top up as needed.
