Expert:  Virtual Wrench replied 10 years ago.

If you havnt started the engine you can suck the fluid out with a turkey baster. If it has been started, you should probably have the system flushed. It's a bit trickey to do and you might want to take it in to have it done.

 

If you have further questions on this, please feel free to reply.

Thanks for asking!
