Empty the coolant into a clean container ... replace the drain point ... add 2 litre's of coolant to the engine ... start engine ....with engine running, top up coolant to correct level ... turn on interior heater blower to full blow and full heat and when engine reaches normal operating temperature check it is blowing hot air .. recheck and top up as necassary the coolant !!

hope this helps
