Hello
Most effective way is as follows
1- Warm your car up
2- Shut off your car
3-Add the flush chemical
4- Run the car for about 15-20 minutes and make sure that you have the heater on
5- shut off the car and give it some time to cool off so that when you open the reservoir cap it will not shoot water out
6- When cooled a little open the clip that is on the radiator pipe (out going circulation.
7- Open the reservoir cap and put a water source to keep the water flowing into the coolant circulation .
8- Start your car and let the water come out till you see that it is clear
9- Close the water source and shutoff your car
Let it drain till done
10-Tighten the clip on the hose
12-Fill new coolant and make sure to get all the air out of the coolant system
13-close the reservoir cap
you are done

It is mounted to the body in front of the tank.  You will find it on the driver's side behind the rear tire.

SOURCE: 96 GMC Suburban Started to overheat last summer.

Check the oil filler cap for mayonaise. It may mean that your head gasket has gone, Go to a local garage and ask them to do a presure test on each cylinder to see if it fails on one. Have you checked the plugs for cleanness and oil contamination? that's where your problems sounds where it lies.

1987 xj6 ticking noise from right side of engine


My guess would be a sticking valve lifter. Buy a can of Gunk Motor Flush ( NOT radiator flush), use as directed, drain the oil and replace the filter, refill with clean oil, and see is the tick has gone away. Marvel Mystery Oil would work also if you can't find the Gunk.
