Im trying to flush the cooling system on a '97

Im trying to flush the cooling system on a '97 Plymouth Breeze. The Prestone flush n fill kit says i need to cut the heater inlet hose. Where is that located? It says it comes from the fire wall, and i think i've located the heater hoses (see pic) but i dont want to cut the wrong one. Neither seem to go to the top of the engine.

Not positive about that engine, but the usual method is the heater inlet will come off the cylinder head somewhere and to the firewall, and the heater outlet (the return hose) will be at same place on the firewall and go to the water pump, very close or at the fitting where the lower radiator hose attaches to the water pump inlet.

SOURCE: need help finding inlet heater hose from fire wall to engine

The inlet going TO the heater core should be the top one (I think) but in any case it would be the one with the heater control valve on it (see picture below) Hope this is what you were looking for....

Can you use a prestone flush and fill kit without opening the radiator drain **** or removing hoses?


No, the flush kit is mounted on the heater hose and you need to drain the system. Removing the lower radiator hose and termostat is the best method for flushing draining the coolant system.

1995 Gran Am 4 cylinder. I want to back flush my cooling system using the Prestone ''Flush 'N Fill Kit. Where do I insert the Tee? I do not know which is the radiator inlet hose as this is where Prestone...


insert the tee by cutting one of the heater hoses and clamping it to the two ends that result.

determine which one is the inlet hose. It is further away from the water pump housing so that when you backflush through it, it also flushes out the heater core.

Hope this helps.

1996 plymouth breeze,... did a tune up change the thermostat but did not purge the radiator,... 2dn day after using the car,.... car got overheated and stop,... car is still able to be driven which i don't...


OK, the thermostat, if silicon was used to seal the housing, could be contaminated and staying closed causing the overheating. Take the thermostat out and check for opening in boiling hot water.

Also, try flushing the cooling system.

I was wondering where the drain plug is to flush the coolant out. Also, what is the best method to flush out the radiator? I have a 2000 Grand Am.


There is a drain plug on the engine compartment side of the radiator at the bottom of the plastic tank. The best way to flush your cooling system is to get a Prestone Raditor Flushing Kit. You can use a garden hose to flush the system out.

Should I back-flush the system?


I would not use any Super Sealer of Stop Leak, this is just a personal preference due to all the trouble I've had when dealing with the consequences of that stuff later on down the line.  I would definitely back flush the system with the kit to get any nasty stuff out of there so you know you are working with a clean system.  I'm not sure about the A/C system though.
