I tried a search for this, nothing. As the title reads, how much coolant do I need after for a complete flush? I plan on doing a complete flush and putting in some engine ice. I don't have an owner's manual, so could someone tell me how much coolant i need. Engine ice comes in 64oz, is that enough?  Thanks!

this is all i can find in the service manual.

Coolant
2871323 60/40 Coolant (Gallon)
2871534 60/40 Coolant (Quart)

i think it takes slightly more than one 64 oz. bottle it has been a long time though so hopefully a current predator owner will chime in. i think 64 oz. is a half gallon.

I picked up 2 jugs to be sure. We'll see then.

Could anyone let me know if it is okay to run a 50/50 mix of distilled white vinegar and distilled water through the quad when doing a radiator flush? I think i read comments saying yes and no.

I would use a product designed for flushing radiators. It should not be necessary though unless someone was running tap or river water through the cooling system. if its being done as preventative maintenance or because of overheating issues, it may be a waste of time unless there actually is buildup on the inside of the cooling system.

Well, I'm switching to engine ice. I figured since I have some white vinegar laying around, I might as well use it.

Engine ice is great stuff. I use it in all my offroad rigs.

I just flushed the heck out of it with water.   If I remember right, one bottle is more than enough.  The service manual says 2.25 quarts which is 72 ounces.  I guess so.  I always bought two jugs at a time also.  It doesn't hurt to have sitting around just in case you need it.
