Is a coolant system flush a DIY job or is this more of a dealer job? Any special equipment needed?

It's so easy a caveman can do it if you use an airlift and a cheapie compressor. One from HF for 40 bucks works just fine.

That might depend on whether you need a new thermostat... Those things are a PITA.

The car has never overheated. I just don't know the history of when it was last flushed and heard it was an important thing to maintain.
Thanks for the input. I will do some research and see if I can find a video on the procedure.
