Bleeding coolant system airlift tool

Hi
I replace my radiator on my 09 elise sc.

I just drop the old one without flusing the whole système.

Do i need to flush the entire système to purge the systeme with a airlift tool?

Thank for the advice.

As long as the new coolant is compatible with the old, I see no reason to completely flush the system. Most should already be drained from the radiator replacement, and the airlift will suck out the rest when you're vacuum testing the system.
