Replace Nissan Versa Engine Coolant 2014

I did a simple drain and replace at 87K miles. You will find the butterfly petcock on bottom left of the radiater. I opened it up and let it drain into a bucket. My coolant resovoir was empty 😶 so I did not empty it. Once drained I topped it of and burped it with the radiator cap off. I drained a half gallon and added a whole gallon back in. some of the old coolant would’ve still been left in the block so if you say this in a probably be best to replace it more often. I understand there should actually be 2 gallons in all. i’m not a mechanic so take this with a grain of salt. FYI i found it difficult to pull out the radiator hose and decided to leave it. Blue Coolant supposed to be good for 105K. Personally I worry about leaving water in the engine block with the flush and diluting the coolant that’s added.

By the way it’s a messy if you don’t use a tube to when you drain.

Here is a full flush tutorial.
