Radiator fans

I dont know what year model you have but the newer one will run when car is turned off to cool radiator. Maybe you have a radiator problem if this just started to happen. Is the car over heating. Did you check radiator fluid or thermostat. I dont know much about your car and year model but i would do these checks. Maybe radiator needs to be flushed. You can use aluminum brite for to flush. Can buy it at O Reiley's. I had to flush my daughters radiator about 10 times when we bought it used, fithy. Looks brand new. Please dispose of chemicals properly. It is an acid.

How to properly flush radiator

I know the satisfaction of doing a job yourself but flushes are a menu item at many shops and also are sale priced. Typically you can find a coolant flush for $80-$90 retail. If you look around you should be able to find %15-20 off or $15 - 20 dollars off that price. For $50 - 60 dollars and a half hour of your time it's hardly worth doing yourself.

How to flush the radiator on a chev blazer 2000 LS

If you are simply flushing the radiator, fill it with clean water (bottled is best) and run it through a few times. There is also "radiator flush" products that help break up build up in the radiator, that you can use; purchase at auto parts dealer near you - also, it's best to flush the block as well. You local auto parts dealer will have a tool (fairly cheap) that will allow you flush the entire system, as well as specific instructions.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I want to know how to Flush my Radiator but I don't know how. or if there is a right way or not.

Your nearest auto parts store will have a special T shaped fitting that you can install in one of your heater hoses. Follow directions which come with the fitting. Otherwise you may remove the bottom radiator hose and let the coolant run into a shallow pan that will hold several gallons. Don't let the coolant run onto the driveway or leave it in the pan unattended. Antifreeze is sweet to the taste, and is very poiseonous to animals and childrern. After draining the radiator remove the top radiator hose and flush with a garden hose for 10 minutes or until flluid comes out clean. This will only flush your radiator, to flush the whole system, you will need the T fitting.

Your car's radiator and cooling system needs to be clean to be cool. As time goes on, your car's radiator builds solid deposits that can clog the cooling system. A quick, inexpensive radiator flush can keep the system in shape. It's important to change your antifreeze seasonally. Before you start your radiator flush, make sure you have everything you need. There's nothing worse than draining your radiator only to realize that you need to drive to the auto store for something!
What you'll need to perform a radiator flush:

  • Phillips head screwdriver or wrench (whichever your radiator drain requires)
  • Cloth rag
  • Radiator Flush solution
  • Coolant
  • Funnel
  • Used coolant receptacle
*Be sure to let your engine cool completely before you loosen or remove the radiator cap. Hot coolant can be painful!

Flushing the Radiator

I would get a Prestone Flushing Kit, it comes with a tee to install into the heater hose and then you can hook up a garden hose to the tee, with the supplied adapter, run the hose until you get clear water coming out of the radiator. Remove the garden hose and install the cap. Drain the water out of the radiator and refill with straight anti-freeze.

I need to flush the water from my radiator out and fill it in with new water and intercooler. but i dont know how to flush it out, need some help please

The way that I flushed mine out was to remove the upper radiator hose at the radiator and kept pouring water in the radiator until I could see clear water coming out of the detached hose. Keep an eye on the open end of the radiator because once it is filled with water, it will overflow out of the open end. Also, be careful of the water coming out of the detached hose, it will be very hot.
