Hi Benny,

I had the same question for my dealer regarding my S4. The manual does *not*
say anything about flushing the cooling system, while my 1990 CoupeQ says you
*should* do it every two years, with the brake fluid.

The dealer stated that it was not necessary, so I left it at that. But I
intend to flush the system soon, as I have done with my Caprice. My Caprice's
radiator lasted 5 years, and the heating core has *never* leaked or failed.
(knocking on wood now!) It's ten years old, with more than 325,000 miles on

I really think that one should replace fluids in the car, as they can get
contaminated after a while, and therefore help save, or lengthen the lifespan
of moving parts within the system.

Hope that helps...
