    How much coolant?

    Hi all,
    Does anyone know how many litres of coolant are needed for a 2.0l 16v coupe engine? I need to flush and change the coolant and want to make sure I have enough additive before I start

    Andy, I use about 7-8 litres total including coolant and water. I normally make my concentration around 30%, so two to three litres of coolant.

    Thanks for that,
    Went to have a go at that this evening but the radiator drain plug snapped off as I tried to undo it, the samll red plastic one on the bottom left of the radiator, luckily it's just the head that came off so there isn't coolant pouring out but it means I'll need to get a new one before I can attempt it again. Does anyone know if what I'm looking for is the blanking plug listed on gsf car parts, PN 17953C? Or do you know the part number if I have to order one from the local dealer?

    thanks, Andy

    I think this is the part number:8A0 121 141

    Maybe just get others to confirm it first...
