i would agree. Depending on the car/engine, you need a lot of expertise, proper instruction and in certain cases special tools.

a lot of the instruction can be found on the internet these days, but I would be careful when it comes to timing belts. You get it slightly wrong you could destroy the engine. So you better know what you are doing

I think the ratio of water : coolant is 1:1.
Thank you, Anurag.
So Swift VDi doesn't have any radiator cab like other cars, it is only Coolant tank Cap? I am asking this question because i am planning to flush the radiator using running tap water into the radiator while engine is idle.
Can you please put the steps to flush the radiator on my Swift Vdi.
