Flushing the coolant system


Once the engine has cooled, locate the radiator drain plug and place a large catch pan underneath it. To expedite the draining process, remove your radiator fill cap to allow air to enter the system. With the cooling system refilled with tap water, replace the radiator fill cap and run the engine allowing it to reach operating temperature.drain radiator,
At this point, if you have opted to purchase a radiator flush kit, you should refill the cooling system with tap water and add the caustic fluid as directed.
Run the engine for as long as the radiator flush kit calls for (usually less than 10 minutes). follow directions on bottle for flushing. if you feel you want to use a T connection just cut into return line, from heater core. then you can use a garden hose to flush system.

How do I flush the cooling system in a 2000 hyundai elantra?


There are several methods for flushing the cooling system on ALL engine cooling systems. Time honored is drain the radiator (drain ****). Fill with fresh water and run engine to operating temperature until cooling fans turn on. Drain cooling system again. Refill with 50-50 coolant. Another method is purchasing a "T" vlave (coolant flush/service kit) from Autozone, PepBoys, NAPA, O'Reilys, CarQuest, etc.). This "T" valve is installed in one of the heater hoses & attached to a garden hose. Remove the radiator cap & turn on the water supply to the garden hose. Let water run until flush water is 'clear'. Remove garden hose from T valve & refill radiator with pure coolant until the T valve drainage turns green/orange. Install T valve cap... DONE!

Air flow will not get hot. Only warm, about 67 degrees is all. Have replaced thermostat. Fan motor operates fine, just temp sensor seems to have no effect.


Hello! The heater core is partially blocked...I would suggest flushing the cooling system with the temperature control on high...NOTE...The type of anti-freeze used in your vehicle is DexCool...If another type is used it may damage the cooling system...To flush...Drain radiator...Fill with plain water...Run engine until thermostat opens...Turn engine off...Let cool then drain...Do this at least three times or until water drains clear...Install new thermostat...Refill with 50/50 DexCool...Leave the radiator cap off as engine warms...Allow all air bubbles to escape...Then install cap...

The down side of DexCool is electrolysis...Electrical current flowing in the cooling system which can cause the anti-freeze to "clump" blocking its flow...Periodic flushing eliminates the problem...

HOW DO I FLUSH RADIATOR


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!

I NEED TO FLUSH THE INTERCOOLER SYSTEM OUT AND REPLACE THE COOLANT, WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO DO THIS?


  1. Start with a stone cold engine

  2. Open the radiator cap

  3. Open the radiator drain plug and let out as much coolant as will drain';

  4. Replace drain plug and refill the sytem with distilled water

  5. Run the engine for for few minutes until it is warm (not hot);

  6. Repeat steps #3, #4 and #5 until you've effectively replace all of the coolant with distilled water. You'll know your finished draining the system when only clear water drains out.

  7. Drain the system one last time (now only residual distilled water should be in your cooling system);

  8. **** out all the coolant in the overflow tank (I use a Turkey baster or a huge syringe with a short length of rubber tubing.)

  9. Replace the radiator drain plug.

  10. Add undiluted anti-freeze to the system;

  11. Run the engine to mix the distilled water already in the cooling system with the newly added antifreeze.

  12. Check the antifreeze/water concentration with a tester.

  13. Over the next few days, adjust to the desired antifreeze/water mixture over the next several days. You'll likely have to **** out a little coolant mixture from the fill cap to create room for either the distilled water or the anit-freeze you'll be adding to adjust to the desired concentration. Sometimes I adjust by adding either water or antifreeze to the coolant- overflow tank which utimately mixes with the engine coolant;

  14. Don't forget to add collant and/or water to the coolant overflow tank.
