Drain the coolant from the petcock on the bottom of the radiator. Add new coolant to the reservoir/hoses, warm up and add fluid to get to the proper level, then do it again.

Two thing to check (1) freeze protection (2) acidity You can buy an inexpensive tester that will tell you how much freeze protection you have. You can also buy text strips that tell about acidity. If both test pass ok, then just add an additive for water pump lube and antirust.
