Hi joexray10, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

Service and Repair

REMOVAL

CAUTION: Do not mix standard (green) coolant with Extended Life Coolant (orange). If this contamination occurs the service change interval on Extended Life Coolant will be reduced from 6 years/150,000 miles to 3 years/30,000 miles.

Drain coolant below water thermostat.
