Coolant replacement - interval and tips

Recommended Posts

I've got 65K miles on my 2017 Sport and was wondering what interval others are changing their coolant and do you have any tips on draining and filling.

Do you know about this?  

 

Yes I do, and used it on my wife's Mustang when I replaced the water pump.

I am having the orange coolant changed out of my 2016 3.5. I wanted to get the orange stuff out and replaced with 10X Peak. My original plan was to get a "flush" as part of the plan, but after looking at the heater lines where I assume the flush T fitting would have to go I am spooked. While I can only see an obstructed view, I am concerned about the possibility of a fitting failure later in time and not being able to get to it without a lift. With this in mind and since this vehicle has low miles (< 16 K) I now am thinking about a drain and replace. What do you all think about my concerns? Comments?

 

That's a question for the 3.5L section, because of the concerns with the internal pump, but <16K miles would seem way too early.

 

I prefer to stick with the OEM coolant and changing from Orange to Yellow does not require a flush knowing that the two fluids are compatible.
