coolant fllush 987

Just found out that the 2008 987 DOES NOT have a coolant bleed valve... You need the special tool to suck the coolant out and a compreser for this job... This is not a job for the casual mechanic... the tool costs 150 dollars or so... I found a shop to do the job for around a hundred bucks.... after buying a new floor jack and all the coolant..not to mention wasting a whole day...looking for it ...glad i didnt: drain the old coolant first as directed ....some jobs are best left to the professionals.

I found the tools online for reasonable price, did the pump and the themostat so had to do the fluid. Out of the three draining and filling was the hardest part.
