Default Flushing a 2004 PT Cruiser

According to the service manual, time to flush my cooling system. The dealer wants $200. I've flushed systems on other cars etc. Any special tools required? Just a matter of draining and refilling? Any help/advice will be appreciated.

This is what I did, I bought the right antifreeze "HOAT" from Zerex and took it to my local Jiffy Lube because they have the machine to not only drain the radiator but to flush it. Be careful because the first time I took it to them I had the full strength antifreeze not the premixed 50/50 along with bottles of distilled water and directed them on how to mix it. after we're done I see my bottles of distilled water untouched, they had put tap in which is a no no. They said they would redo it, so I came back with the premixed and they redid it, I now have the cleanest radiator in the world.
