    PLEASE please please someone tell me how to winterize my GTR!

    I'm ether blind,or a good wright up doesn't exist. I know how to change the plugs,take care of the battery and fuel. I just don't understand how to prevent it from freezing. Can I just make an adapter for my air compressor and blow water out threw the flush adapter? Does coolant have to be used? If so how to you push the coolant in? The real bummer is Kansas weather,and lack of a heated garage. It can be really cold then in the 70's for a week or two. So I'd like to be able to de winterize and hit the water if its not to big of a pain in the ass. Thanks in advance!

    I guess I'm over thinking it, I read that a few weeks ago. I just thought it was a must to have coolant in the water passages.

    So with the engine off I just blast air into the flush adapter tell no more comes out and then happy days?

    I'd suggest fogging the motor also.
    I don't winterize but I would also suggest getting anti freeze in the ic and exhaust.
    If any water freezes in there its going to mean replacing parts..

    Just take about a 3 foot piece of garden hose, screw it into the flush port on the back of the ski, put a funnel in the other end of the hose, start it up, and pour in a gallon of antifreeze, you will see the antifreeze coming out the back. when the antifreeze jug is empty, shut it off. You are done.

    So gravity alone is enough to push it in the engine? Wow,thanks for the help.
