I only use holden brand or tectaloy. but remember with holden brand coolant you need to use pellets aswell to lube the pump seal. they only cost about $5 from holden. tectaloy doesn't need them, as the lube is mixed in

For the V6 you will need 6 litres of the concentrate, and 6 litres of clean water. The capacity of the system in the VS V6 is 12 litres, which includes radiator, block, hoses etc and the reserve tank.
The best way I have found of getting all the concentrate in is to make sure your heater is set to full heat, remove the top radiator hose and thermostat, flush radiator, and remove bottom hose, then flush the block by putting the hose into the thermostat opening, and wait until clean water is coming from the bottom radiator hose. Then hook up the bottom radiator hose, pour the entire 5 litre concentrate into the radiator, then put the thermostat back in, bolt it all back together, put another 750mL concentrate into the reserve tank, then just fill the rest of the system with clean water, that way you have the correct 50/50 mix of coolant concentrate and water.
i hear its a good idea to replace the thermostat? how much will that cost? lol AND (sounds like a silly question) where is the thermostat of wuheva located in the engine?
btw. are there any other components that needs replacing while im on the coolant drainin job?
