Does anyone know if there is a hose I can disconnect to drain out the coolant. I want to put in different coolant that is not green, it is orange and made by General Motors.

ther are 2 hoses. 1 connects to the water pump and the radiator. the other connects to the motor and the radiator. take both off. but then you need to drain the rezzie. take off the 2 bolts on the rezzie and take the cap off and tip it over until all the coolant is out. then after you put everything back on you must top off the radiator filler cap with coolant. ride it for an hour then top the radiator coolant off again. hope this helps

you can but all you need to take off is the bolt on the bottom.

So if I take out the 4th bolt on the bottom of the pump the coolant will drain out of the hole the bolt goes in? Or is the bolt I am looking for under the that pump?

there is 1 single bolt at the bottom of that pump that has a copper washer on it. THAT ONE.

drain the back rezzie and plug the single plug above that bolt. then remove that bolt. should get pretty much all of it. the hose coming into the top of the other side makes it's wa down to this water pump anyways. it will filter down.

Propylene Glycol is not a very good choice for coolant...
Just my .02 cents 8|

Are you referring to the GM stuff I want to put in, why do you not reccomend it?
