don't you have to use a water hose or something like that to flush it out before putting new coolant in?

Since this is a question and not a How To, I'm moving you to the engine section.
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

Be careful with the drain cock...if you've never flushed it they have a tendency to break.........off :rofl:

BTW how do you change the thermostat on these cars?

Drain coolant

Remove the two screws that hold the fill cap/t'stat housing to the head

Set housing/upper hose aside

Remove/replace t'stat with bleed hole up

Replace/reuse o-ring at own risk

Install t'stat housing back on head

Fill slowly with coolant

Hope that not too much air gets trapped in head, giving you fits. :D

I reused mine. 130,000 and still sealing. These are far better than the ones they used in the 2.2's. (water pump to block) Or I'm lucky. The way I see it if it's still pliable,not torn and isn't compressed it should seal. O-rings>gaskets. I have had far more troubles with t'stat gaskets.

Edit: And that would be bi***. :D
