Too Much Coolant

My car has to much coolant in the tank. How do I drain it out?

disconnect your lower radiator hose, but pinch it first then let a little drain out.

Thats the best way. But if it isn't too overfilled, I wouldn't worry about it.

works great - but if you use it to drain coolant don't rinse it out and put it back in moms kitchen drawer - once you suck coolant through it the baster is no longer suitable for food prep!

Unhook the small hose from the top of the coolant bottle and start the engine. Let it pump it out on its own.
