Q: Draining the coolant on my car

asked by on

A: Hi there. Flushing the radiator and coolant...

Hi there. Flushing the radiator and coolant system used to be a rather simple job. However, one issue you're going to have with your 2004 Audi is with priming the coolant system while you're filling it up. If it's not done correctly, it can lead to overheating and possibly major engine damage. In this case, if you are not comfortable with the procedure, it might be a good idea to defer to a local mechanic to complete the radiator flush for you.
