Coolant flush is really easy. Mine had a flush plug I simply turn and it drains. I broke it though because it was plastic so had to buy a new one but after the flush, I refilled it with 50/50 coolant and water. And topped up the coolant tank

You don't add water to 50/50 premixed coolant

I work at Jiffy lube. And we have a machine that you take one hose off the top of the radiator and one off the engine and it sucks the system dry then pumps in all new coolant in 15 minutes everything eles is drain and fill.

I tried taking off a broken sway bar link to replace it but couldn't get it off with muscle. So tomorrow I'm taking a grinder to it and putting the new one on.
