Preferable to flush as much out as possible to get rid of the old stuff and can be done at home by undoing the heater hose at the fire wall and using the garden hose to force water through until it comes out clean Dont turn hose on full blast as it will spray out over everything build up to it so it doesnt make a mess.Make sure the heater is in the on position so that water comes out the pipe you took the hose off.Either way though it will still be ok to just undo the bottom radiator hose as the majority of it will come out.

hello your intake gasket is most likely leaking internally into your engine.pretty common problem.the plastic and silicon gaskets get weak over time.

The problem is most likely 90% head gaskets but could be intake manifold gasket leaking too. Intake gasket has to be checked when intake is removed. Might find problem there if not continue and remove heads. Bars Leak will not work.

Replace the bad radiator hose first. Second- get you special formulated anti-freeze dye from the auto store and pour it into the radiator. Third- make sure you got all the air pockets out of your system, cause the coolant system won't work with air pockets in it. Fourth- Check for leaks by looking for the colored dye. If it's not the radiator hose, then could possibly be a pin hole in your radiator. Would suggest replacing all the radiator hoses at the same time while you got the coolant system disconnected, cause you don't want to have to come back and replace another hose in a few months.
