Secure your automobile on an level surface. The car should not be elevated or in any danger of slipping. Position an empty oil bucket underneath the radiator drain pipe. The pipe is located on top of the radiator, near the driver's side. Wait until your automobile engine is cool enough, before checking for the blockage. Working on your automobile while the engine is hot could result in serious burn injuries.
Drain the cooling system on your automobile. Remove the radiator cap while the engine is cool, and pour the container of radiator flush into it. Replace the cap, and start your automobile engine. Since the flush needs to circulate throughout the car, you must wait about thirty minutes before moving ahead.
Move toward the radiator, and open the drain valve to catch the old fluid in the bucket underneath the radiator. Once done, properly dispose of the old liquid fluid. However, don't pour it on the ground or in the sewage. You can either flush it down a toilet, or submit it to a recycling center that recycles antifreeze liquids.
Pour a chemical cleaner into the radiator in order to eliminate any sediments or rust. Follow this up with running water in order to thoroughly clean the radiator.
Check the radiator further by disconnecting the ATF oil cooler lines: the upper and lower radiator hoses. Use a flare-nut wrench to avoid damaging the fittings. Unbolt the radiator support brackets, after you have removed the cooling fan. The condition of all belts and hoses must be examined for cracks, soft spots and bulges. It may be necessary to replace these.
Make sure the mounting brackets and radiator support are in alignment when bolting the radiator back in place. Without good alignment, your radiator will be in danger of overheating and, ultimately, failure. Also, make sure every part taken from the radiator is replaced, in order to avoid any kind of massive damage to the automobile.
