Need to winterize the race rabbit whose radiator is currently filled with "water wetter".
Can I just pull the lower radiator hose, drain, replace, refill with antifreeze to the proper ratio, and then run to operating temperature?
Any problem trapping air in the system?

Sounds like a good plan to me. How cold is the storage area?
Cheers, WWR.

It gets down to 0 or below on occasion. I will change to 5w30 oil too as I hope to run it once in awhile just to keep everything "lubed up".

Edited for "cold fingers" spelling issues.

If it's only sitting for the winter, it's better to leave the car off for that time period, unless you plan on driving the car and getting it up to operating temps.
