    Nope...........go for it. You can flush the heater system if you want to get old coolant out of there. Most stores carry the Prestone flush kit.

    Check out the Prestone site: http://www.prestone.com/products/accessories.php



    2) Two heater hoses extend from the fire wall to the engine, in both front and rear wheel drive vehicles. Hose #1 runs from fire wall to water pump. Hose #2 runs from fire wall to top of engine. This is the heater inlet hose. Ask a qualified mechanic if uncertain.

    3) TEE should be installed in a relatively straight section of the inlet hose, away from hot exhaust system. Cut heater inlet hose; install TEE that provides snug fit in heater inlet hose. Remaining TEES should be discarded. Check for leaks after installation.
