I need to change out my thermostat and housing this weekend (stuck open). I had a couple questions I was hoping could get answered:
1-Is there any gasket sealer to deal with when replacing the thermostat/housing or just an o-ring?
2-Do I need to completely drain my antifreeze or can I just remove the part, spill some and top off. I know I have to bleed the system but the car only has 28k so if I didn't have to completely drain it, I won't.
3-Do I have to use special BMW antifreeze? Can I just use Prestone or similar?
Thanks in advance!!
