Hello, I am Daniel. I may ask you questions, to better answer you. Please let me know if you have any other questions before you Accept.
actually it not bad at all.
You can use a heater core flush hose kit at auto zone
and you will want to run it with a cleaner for about 5 minutes and then flush it.
The bypass valve i usually leave in.
and it comes with a cap for when your done flushing
u just drain coolant out before starting the hose.
I want to know if under the car--isn't there a panel (for lack of a better word)at the front end underneath, that must be removed before the radiator can be flushed??
that way as little as possible gets on the ground.
Sure let me grab that for you
Is it to be removed--the panel right under the front end?
Does this removal facilitate the procedure of flushing the radiator?
r u there?
Draining Procedure Caution: To avoid being burned, do not remove the radiator cap or surge tank cap while the engine is hot. The cooling system will release scalding fluid and steam under pressure if radiator cap or surge tank cap is removed while the engine and radiator are still hot. Important: Do not use coolant system sealers in this cooling system.
Filling Procedure Notice: The procedure below must be followed. Improper coolant level could result in a low or high coolant level condition, causing engine damage.
Was i gone that long.
so yes remove the air deflector. but for flushing procedure you also have to remove the thermostat
well, it seemed like it! And is it the air deflector ?
That is what I keep calling the panel--so you remove it first, and reinstall?
Thank you--that all helps.
and you see you drain fluid by removing the lower radiator hose carefully
Got it. Tx!
Really the only other thing i can think of is
use some full concentrate since there will be some just water in block. then use 50 50
about a gallon
your very welcome.
