how to flush engine coolant?

How do you flush/drain engine coolant and also windshield washer fluid? because i think my windshield fluid is getting... "stale"????

And I am going to put 50/50 in the coolant but i dont want to mix the Toyota and 50/50 together

best way to do it is to find and under one of the heater hoses found on the motor and stick your garden hose in the radiator openeing and watch the old coolant come out, once clean water comes out stop the hose. start filling the radiator until fresh coolant comes out the heater hose, put the heater hose back on and continue filling the system, run and verify proper operation of the cooling system and your done

Really?

That's sooo hard to accept. Same as the tranny oil. It bugs the crap outta me that I can't check it with a dipstick!!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

thats the one thing i didnt like about my 06................the sealed tranny that had no dipstick. for the coolant tho..............yeah, you can change it early, and there are tests that can check the coolant life too, but the 100k is just by the book. i think tho, with coolant, you can probably tell,to a point anyway, that it may be time to change it.
