I have a diesel (DDIS) version of the Suzuki Ritz/Splash. I would like to re-fill the engine coolant, as it has been topped-up for a long time now, and might be mostly water than actual coolant right now. I want to find out a standard operating procedure for doing this repair, and possibly other relevant things to be taken care of.

  1. Where to find the coolant drain cap/bolt, and how to drain it.
  2. What is the coolant grade/type to be used.
  3. What is the proportion of coolant and water to be used in the system.
  4. After re-filling, what is the procedure to make sure the process was done right.

I have basic hand tools and accessories at my disposal.

This model doesn't have a cap on the radiator, but the cap is on the overflow reservoir. The white jar towards the right of the battery has this cap.
