Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

It would be best to start by adding a cleaner to the cooling system and then run the engine for at least a half hour to let it circulate. From there y you'll want to drain the cooling system as much as possible. This is best done with the engine hot, but be aware there is the potential for burns if you do so. If you're not experienced with this sort of thing you may opt to wait until the engine has cooled again.

The best thing to do would be to remove the radiator cap and remove the lower radiator hose to drain it that way. You'll get more coolant out and won't have to worry about breaking the radiator drain.

Use a garden hose if possible to flush the engine, radiator and heater core directly.

When sufficiently flushed then you can reassemble everything, add your conditioner, fill and bleed the cooling system.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
