To Drain:
NOTE: Draining the cooling system with the pressure cap installed will siphon the coolant from the overflow tank.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Open the radiator drain **** and drain the coolant into a drain pan.
  3. Empty and wash out the coolant reservoir with soap and water.
  4. Inspect the coolant if discolored flush the system before refilling.
To Fill:
Follow the procedure below to insure the coolant is at the proper level. A coolant level that is too high or too low could cause engine damage.
  1. Close the radiator drain **** and lower the vehicle.
  2. Slowly fill the cooling system with a 50/50 mixture of DEX-COOL antifreeze and clean drinkable water.
  3. Install the coolant pressure cap and start the engine.
  4. Run the engine at 2,000-2,500 RPM until the engine reaches normal operating temperature than let the engine idle for 3 minutes.
  5. Turn the engine off and let the engine cool off.
  6. Top off the coolant and check the concentration of the coolant using the (J 26568) coolant and battery tester.

How to change the thermostat on 2000 buick park ave ultra

The thermostat is located under the cover that the upper radiator hose connects to on the engine, let engine cool and remove plastic cover over engine and then remove the 2 bolts that hold the thermostat cover down, replace the thermostat exactly as the old one came out, refill the system with the bleeder valve open on the top of the cover over the thermostat until coolant comes out as you fill, this bleeds our out.

Make sure there are no leaks and that the system is full to capacity. After the vehicle has warmed up check radiator hoses for temperature differecial also check heater core hoses. A significant difference in temperature may indicate a plugged heater core or thermostat failure
