    Replacing coolant for an 04 rxp?

    When adding/replacing the engine coolant is it better to remove all the old coolant first then add the new? Or is it ok to just add new coolant to the old stuff?

    Also what is the best way to completely change the coolant?

    Look at the farthest back end of the ride plate and it will be obvious.
