Changing the Coolant

From the B14 Factory Service Manual. Some B13s have an additional Air Relief Plug near the firewall.

looks like this is if you're going to drain all the coolant out of the block too, if you're going to change coolant for maintenance reasons take it somewhere that does a flush with a machine, not a flush and fill an actualy coolant flush, using a machine from someone like Wynn's etc. We use Wynn's equipment at work, the service runs about $90, takes an hour and gets almost all the coolant changed, gets the right 50/50 mix in and gets all the air bled out of the system.

The Factory Service Manual procedure above does all of that, you do it yourself, and the only cost is for anti-freeze.

Is is necessary to replace the rad cap every time you drain the coolant? How about the thermostat?
