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 the Cooling System.


Normally the engine operates at 195F, unless you have replaced the thermostat with another one at 185F. If the temperature has a tendency to rise up, the reason is a partially obstructed cooling system or/and a bad thermostat.The first part of the cooling system that gives up is the heater core, because the coolant flowing channels are thin. It is the time for a coolant flush in your car. To do it right then you need time. Plan ahead for a weekend. With a cooled engine, start with the heater core hoses. Disconnect both of them, but the dirt has to go out of your car, so with a garden hose back flush it and let the dirt to get out of your cooling system. After you will get clean discharge,it is the time for coolant bottle, remove it, discharge the used coolant and clean it. The third to come is the radiator. Open the drain cook, or disconnect the lower radiator hose, and disposal used coolant properly. Now open the radiator cap and flush with water the radiator till discharge will be clear.You think that you are done? Not yet. There is half of old dirty coolant trapped in the system. Install everything, and connect all coolant system hoses, radiator, heater core and coolant bottle. Now you have to run your car with water. Fill out the cooling system with distilled water, start engine, turn on the heater high, and run till upper radiator hose get hot. That means the thermostat opens. Let the engine to cool down, open the radiator cap, and draining cook or lover radiator hose and drain everything. You can use flush detergent, if you wanted, at this stage, but flushing with detergent will add 4 more hours, because the detergent is colorless and you have to guess how many fill and drain processes to do, to get rid of it. I do not do it, but if your cooling system is very dirty you have to do it. After the last drain, fill the cooling system with concentrated antifreeze and 30% distilled water. The reason is because it is more water trapped inside the cooling system. The goal is to reach 50/50concentration. You need a coolant tester to find this. Start the engine and add coolant till radiator is full. Install the radiator cap and bleed the system. After driving you car for a day or so, let engine to cool down, open the radiator cap check the concentration of coolant with the tester, and add antifreeze or distilled water as necessary. It is a good idea to replace the thermostat while flushing the radiator. This procedure has to be done every 2 to 3 years. It is up to you to decide to use RED GM Dex-Cool or GREEN Prestone antifreeze. In all my cars I have replaced Dex-Cool with Prestone, but I flush the system every 2 years, and I never had a cooling system problem in all my cars.

1: Drain coolant system
2: Purchase coolant flush, making sure you have the proper amount for your size of coolant system
3: Pour coolant flush into your radiator, filling the rest with water
4: On the coolant flush bottle it will tell you how long to run your vehicle
5: Once done running, let cool enough to open radiator cap, and drain system COMPLETELY by first draining out of pep **** on radiator, then taking one side of the hoses off the radiator and draining those
6: Put hoses back on and fill system with coolant. When the fluid gets to the top of the fill port on radiator, start vehicle and let run, allowing air to escape the system, and fill as necessary

What type of coolant goes in a Buick rendevous?


The original coolant used in your vehicle was DEXCOOL. It is a redish or orangish colored coolant. If it is grean it has been flushed to conventiional coolant. If you can not tell what color it is it is overdue for a coolant flush. It will make no difference if you use DEXCOOL or conventional coolant when you flush as long as you completely flush the system over to whatever you decide to use.

I have purchased 2001 model Sebring Lxi. After driving just 20 miles I heard a sound of water boiling in coolant tank. Its too much boiling & sounds horrible. what should I do? Is this a serious Issue....


waterboiling in the coolant tank is not a good sign. water needs air to boil, and if you have air in the system, you are not getting the sufficient cooling you need to keep driving your vehicle. take it in to somewhere and havea coolant flush performed on it. if you would rather do it yourself, you can drain the coolant, fill with new coolant and add some coolant flush to the new coolant to clean out the system. NOTE. DO NOT leave coolant flush fluid in vehicle. You must remove the old coolant and fill with fresh coolant and bleed the system of any air to prevent your boiling. hope this helps.

Can the green antifreeze be used in a 2002Volkswagon Passat instead of red fluid. 1.8 liter engine


I wouldn't attempt that. Stick with the fluid that the manufacturer recommends many problems can occur if you put the wrong coolant into the system.

Luke warm heat in a 2002 expediton


Start with Flushing out your cooling system. Flush it out with Preston Radiator flush, you have your preference of ether the super flush which takes 3-6 hours or the 10 min flush which is good if you don't have the time to flush out your cooling system.

After you have flushed out your cooling system, replace your thermostat and you should be good for another cold winter driving. What happens is that after a few years of the coolant not being serviced, the coolant crystallizes and clogs up the heater core and radiator causing poor circulation. Poor circulation will cause poor heat and or overheating issues to the engine.

Before you go through all that inspect to make sure you have the right amount of coolant in your cooling system.

Good luck and thank you for using fixya
