Coolant and Springs

My coolant is get dirty and is in need of changing, I was just wondering how much coolant will be needed after I flush it?

Also how much do Springs cost, im wanting to lower my car.

Re: Coolant and Springs

From memory it's 15 litres in total, of which up 33-50% should be coolant and the rest distilled water.

From www.performanceparts.com.au I paid $210 including postage for low springs, though the prices may have changed.

Re: Coolant and Springs

Personally I recommend Nulon brand coolants with 50/50 mix.

Re: Coolant and Springs

Ill be getting the springs done by someone else, ill have a talk with a guy I know and ill see if he can help me out.

I usually use the expensive coolant but I might use a mid price-ranged coolant for this.

Thanx Guys

Re: Coolant and Springs

buy a 5L bottle of concentrate and follow the directions so that your coolant is between 33 and 66% (i think, check the book) ethelene glycol. dont use the cheap stuff cause it is only about 6% and wont prtect your engine from corrosion or boiling over.
