Does anybody have a video link on how to flush the cooling system on a GM 3.1L SFI OHV 6cyl motor? I need a vid for this particular motor cause mine is still overheating & i have looked everywhere.

flushing a cooling system is the same method as any other motor

do it without the thermostat fitted
or water pump opening

sacrifice an old radiator hose to adapt a garden hose fitting
for radiator flush

air in system fix
your thermostat housing has no air bleed valve
no top radiator cap

old school way
heater on full
run motor till thermostats fully open
burp radiator hoses
wait till water is running up into over flow bottle without bubble
replace cap
turn off heater
correct level in over flow bottle

why still over heating
you fitted everything i would have ... yet still overheat
leaking inlet manifold gaskets
hose clamps loose
cooling fans spinning too slow
thermostatic fan switch faulty
aluminum radiator is a big one
air ..fins bent or some water channels blocked

or possible head gasket leak

I need to know how to replace the heater core. I know where it's located but need details on how to take it out.

Hello Heather
never ceases to amaze me the jobs that young ladies will take on this site. Way to go!

Drain Coolant. Remove hose, remove fixing screws and replace.

Fill coolant system, run to full heat, squeeze radiators hoses with gloves on to burp the system and get rid of air. Leave to cool and top up.

make model replace heater core
almost certainly you will find a YouTube video.

How do you flush?

The cooling system?
Loosen the bottom rubber radiator hose and let the coolant run out.

Buy a can of coolant system flush. Reconnect the bottom radiator hose, pour the can of coolant flush in and top up with plain water. Drive the car for about 10 minutes until the engine is warm.

Then remove the bottom radiator hose and let the water run out.
Reconnect the bottom hose and fill the cooling system with coolant/water mix. Run the engine for 5 minutes and then check the coolant level

How to flush heater core

Simple. You find the heater hoses feeding the heater core. Typically they are a smaller diameter then radiator hoses and they both run to the firewall. You will need to determine which one feeds the heater core ...the input hose. Once you know that ...check a Taurus owners forum or Google it ...then run your water through the heater core from the output side. The idea is to back flush the core in the hopes you knock loose the crud with high pressure water flow.

This heater core flush is usually done in conjunction with flushing the entire cooling system. Do the cooling system flush first then the heater core. When you do the system flush, use some flush agent ...Prestone makes it. If the directions say use one bottle, use two. The stuff is generally not all that potent and designed not to contaminate the ground water. Which means it's fairly lame stuff. Use two bottles.

Radiator hose is soft when motor is warm

Without knowing if there has been any "Cooling System " work on car. (1) U could have a stuck thermostat, air in cooling system, water pump or impeller damaged. (2) top hose is coolant from engine TO radiator (3) bottom hose is coolant from radiator pulled into engine. (4) engine is WARM but is it RUNNING ? (5). Also, if radiator/coolant tank cap is left off , system is unable to pressurize , there fore "SOFT HOSES". all this is guessing without more info. bigAl

Sounds like a restricted heater core. Remove the hoses and back-flush the heater core system with a water hose. You may want to do a complete cooling system flush while you're at it.

If you can't flush the heater core clean with a water hose, it may be time to replace.

How to bleed cooling system on a 3100 Buick Century?

If there is a bleed valve near the upper radiator hose, you can use that.
If not, you would have to run the engine with the cap loose until the thermostat opens to let the air escape.

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!

I woke up this morning and my antifreeze had been leaking. I think it's leaking from the hose that connects the radiator to the engine. Is this a cheap fix to do on my own? Are there any other reasons it...

i would 1st check to see that the hose clamp was not loose, if so then tighten it with a screwdriver , or suitable tool. if hose has to be replaced , cooling sysytem will have to be drained down enough to allow the hose and clamp to be removed, without losing anti freze, then remove the hose and clamp then install the new hose, and clamp , and tighten down, re fill cooling system, and then start up vehicle and check for leaks, add aditional coolant if needed, then install radiator cap, then shut off engine, let engine cool, and later recheck coolant level. make sure engines cooling system has purged it self by getting the air out of the system , [ by running engine after you replace the parts, and etc, make sure you don't over heat the engine, it temperature gage riies, shut off engine, let it cool so engine can purge.
