Flush brake fluid and engine coolant

I was wondering, if anyone knows how to or have done a brake flush and replace engine coolant on a 03 navigator or similar. I read on Mitchell that you have to do something special with a machine to flush the brake fluid or something. Also, for engine coolant, you have to bleed the system after adding in new coolant. I have gravity bled many cars at school and never came across this machine before. Same goes with coolant

Re: Flush brake fluid and engine coolant

There is a procedure to run the ABS to flush the flush the fluid from inside. I wouldn't worry about the small amount that's in there. When you drive it, the system runs it for a second everytime you start it and get to about 5 MPH. You feel it in the brake pedal like a buzz. There's not enough to worry about unless the vehicle was under water.

The coolant isn't any different than most systems. There are always small pockets of older coolant inside the engine.
