If you can change your oil, you can flush your radiator...just a bit more sloppy than the oil change....

everythings easy if u have a lift, in my opinion. it took me 3 hours to change my halfshaft and lower control arm. and if i didnt have a lift. it woulda taken me 1 week or 2

Some of you guys talk about using lifts a lot...do you guys have them in your garages or do you have friends in shops that let you use em??

Btw flushing the radiator does get messy...I got a half full mouth of antifreeze when I flushed my radiator...
