How do I change the Coolant in a 2011 GTI130?
My GTI130 is starting her 3rd season and she has 40 Hours on the clock. I was reading through the maintenance manual and it says to change the coolant every 2 years or 100 hours which ever comes first. Ive read a few threads on here but none of them have been very specific on how to bleed the air from the system.
I plan on pulling the little plug in the ride plate, let it drain out and run a few gallons of distilled water through the reservoir to clean it out then pour a 50/50 mixture of distilled water and aluminum safe antifreeze until i see the antifreeze pour out then plug the hole. After that im a bit lost, i understand that it is super simple i just dont want to blow my engine up because there is still some air in the system
Thanks guys! sorry if this has been beat to death already

sounds like you have it under control for the most part. after you get the air out of the plate and plug it, remove the breather hose coming off the head that goes to the coolant tank (reservoir side). fill until it leaks out of the hose. replace little hose and squeeze the big coolant hose a few times, then top off and ride. top off again after riding. gL

I don't think you need to change it at only 40 hrs.
I know the manual says so but seadoo just wants you to go to a stealership and spend $$$
I've purchase 6-7 yr old skis and they still had original coolant and no issues.
