Hi, I’m Wayne.

I will be assisting you with this issue today.

best way to do this will take several times

pour 1/4 cup liquid dish soap in the coolant

run 15 minutes open all drain cocks and pull plugs on the block

flush with water, run again, flush

get couple cans of a coolant flush, repeat the same thing

after 3-4 times of flushing, this will clear it up

I hope this helps you

Wayne

My goal is to give you the best experience possible.
