Dear All ,
I know there is 2 bolts down the motor to drain water .
I am always having problem in water cycle because I used tap water for long time and guess that I need to fully clean the cycle .
even when I got another radiator it seems to be blocked from down side.
The reason I need to get the bolts out is that the water inlet and outlet at the engine block are both high and I am afraid there is lot of dust/rust down .
I didn't take the bolts before .
Any ideas ? I think I need to use wd40, some knocks with a hammer for some days on the bolts and then do the try ...any ideas ?

yeah, good idea to drain the coolant.
two bolts are at the bottom of block, one in the middle and another near cyl 4.
i never had a problem to unbolt them, had a few rusted blocks and bolts were ok.
a pic just if you need info about bolt location.
i saw you have overheat problem, maybe it is bad radiator, need to change a new one.
also take a look at thermostat and water pump.
145/146 model front parts are the same.

Do you think it's ok to unbolt them after 160k km and unknown rust condition ?
