coolant system help!
Alright so my water pump went bad and actually ended up imploding in the system. I retrieved serveral large plastic parts from the old pump, but i want to get all the plastic parts out of the system. I have my water pump and thermostat out. Would it be best to leave the engine drain plug in and fill it with water through the thermostat hole and watch for pieces to come out? then drain the system completely? Anyone having any advice on this i would appreciate greatly. It's quite cold in ohio today and would like to get this job done as quickly as possible.
