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.

I like to fill it with water and a bottle of flush per directions, then flush a second time, drain and fill.

With this warm spring and summer its likely the water in the coolant has evaporated making it lower then normal so you had to add some.
