Engine ice

I have a 2009 teryx LE and want to start running engine ice. I live in so. az where 110-115 is the norm in the summer. Can someone explain how I go about switching over? I don't know a lot about this machine.

How do I drain the old stuff?

Do I need to flush the system with 50/50 vinegar and water, then plain water(i read that somewhere)......

or just drain it and replace with engine ice?

Thanks.

Hey there Tom, I just flushed my system and replaced it with engine ice. Never heard of the vinegar and water thing (well I have, however, not for motors, lol)

To drain the old stuff just remove the hoses and there is also a drain plug on the motor...just open that up as well.

Evans is the way to go. You will need to get their engine prep and the NPG+. In my own opinion it is much better than any other product...it's boiling boint is something like 370 degrees.
