thanks mate,It's probably in the box, but are these usually mixed 50/50 with demineralised water?
I have not seen this one before.
The one that shows up in CraigB's link is the "coolant" not pre mixed.Pre-mixed, yeah, no need to add water, but one bottle wouldn't be enough as it's only 5Lthe 100% coolant in 5L, should do 10L, enough to fill our car..Apparently the One coolant is top of the range, that can mix with either colour coolant, and lasts longer.I just can't find what is the ratio you need to mix it, because it costs way too much to do 50/50
This shell glyco-shell green is factory fill in all hy/kia diesel engines. 3l is enough for change.Don't buy red coolant if you have green inside. Can say only one thing. As water pump is old (100.000+)and you didn't changed it.... Don't make 50:50mix. You don't even need -38C mix anywhere in Europe or Australia. And if your refractometer reads -38C trust me it will not freeze until -45CGo with 60:40 mix water:coolant and your water pump will last much longer.Not only with 1.6crdi but lot of people when change their coolant after few months they also change water pump as they leak from too strong coolant mix.
thing is.. with the 5L premix.. it's not enough with 1 bottle.
You can't really drain all old coolant. I think 5l is enough.
Changing coolant is not like changing oil ,small percent of old coolant left in system will not ruin new fill.
You don't even need -38C mix anywhere in Europe.
I pm'd Cruiserfied and he said that he doesn't think there is a drain bolt so I guess the only option is to drop it via the radiator tap and try to flush out remaining coolant.
I changed the coolant on mine last year. took put the drain in the radiator and took off one of the cooling hoses on the back of the engine. Filled up with just water and started the engine, then emptied again. Did that 3 times until it was clear water coming out.When refilling I could only add about 5 litres even though I think the manual says ca 7 litres.
