Things you will need:
Radiator coolant mixture (get from garage)
Radiator flush fluid (also from garage)
Distilled water (Or if your me garden hose water ;) )

Take off the radiator cap when engine is COOL. Find the drain plug located in the bottom of the radiator (normaly hand tight) and let it drain out into a catch container. Put the drain plug back in, follow the instructions on the flush container topping the radiator back up. Let engine run as directed on bottle and then carefuly undo the radiator cap using a rag as not to burn yourself. Then remove the plug again and drain out the flush fluid. Then repeat the process with the radiator fluid as instructed on the bottle.

99 buick lesabra blowing no heater


Assuming that you have the proper amount of coolent added, check where your heater hoses connect to the engine block for rust and corrossion, this is a common area to clog up, preventing coolent flow from circulating through your heater core. If ok, check for a thermostat that is stuck open.

1994 Buick Park Avenue has the coolant low light on and can't seem to find the problem


Is the car running at the correct temp?

I don't know about this model but some vehicles have a senser One if the scencer goes bad it will send a false reading, Or it could be that there is not enough coolent in the raditor, It is possible that you need to have the raditor flushed and new coolent added...Check with your local dealer ask what the recamented service on the raditor is as far as millage..
Good Luck

How do i flush my radiator for a buick lesabre 97


You can purchase a flushing kit from Prestone, you'll have to install a tee in one of the heater hoses to connect a garden hose to it. Pour some radiator flush in and run the car for a bit. Then shut off the car and let it cool down. Connect the garden hose to the tee and remove the radiator cap and turn on the hose, until clear water is coming from the radiator. Turn off and disconnect it from the tee and replace the cap. Drain as much water from the radiator and refill the radiator and overflow bottle. Many oil change places can do it also. The have a machine to do it. Usually around $40-50.

Need to change coolent in radiater ,does this take a special kind of coolent and do i need to use a special type of radiater flush. Also is there a drain on the radiater?


You don't need to use a special kind of radiator flush, but the coolant is called DEX COOL. It's made by prestone specifically for GM engines, you can get it at walmart for like 5 bucks.

c2d1fde.jpgOk looking at all different Manufactors, and i have'nt seen one with a radiator drain plug..So if you are tring to flush your raditor, just take off the bottom radiator hose, and run a hose in the radiator, and flush it out the best way you can...Then top it off with a Gallon of coolant, and you should be fine...Goodluck...

99 Buick La Sabre-accelrating problem-fuel injectors?


It sound as though the car is overheating and maybe the mechanic did not properly blled the system to expel the air.
Air does not heat or cool in a pressurized environment and will read ok on the temp guage.Basically the air is plugging the circulation at the senders spot.
Call the repair shop and ask if it was properly bled.
