Its not good to run just water in your radiator. more than likely you over heated and with alot of new cars the motor tends to shut of to prevent any damage that can be caused

1998 crv radiator needs to be flushed, how do i do this?


Pull the lower hose off from the water pump, pull the upper hose off the goose neck at top, stick a garden hose in the bottom radiator hose end and seal it best you can with your hand or rags stuffed around it, turn the water on and leave water running for a while. Be sure to aim the upper radiator hose out from under the hood to keep water off the engine. After about 15 minutes or so, turn the water hose off and re-connect radiator hoses, refill the radiator and put the cap on. You've just backflushed your radiator.

How do I flush the radiator


Removing the drain plug and just letting old coolant drain out and then refilling doesn't really flush it out. It only drains what is in the radiator and it doesn't circulate and flush what is in the engine and heater core.
Take radiator cap off, then take top radiator hose off where it comnects to the radiator..only disconnect that side of the radiator hose aim end of hose downwards and leave it there. Take a wet rag and push it into the radiator where the hose was connected..you don't want to push it in so far you have trouble removing after flushing...the wet rag is just to limit the amount of water that will come out of radiator where hose is no longer attached..crank car and coolant will start to slowly come out the vend of radiator hose aimed downward...have a hose or 4 or 5gallons of water...right after you crank the car pour the water or befilling the radiator with the hose...you want to keep the water going in the radiator as to keep it fulI...replace what is coming out of radiator hose...continue to add water until what is coming out of the radiator hose is clear water.. this way the water is circulating through the entire cooling system and engine. When water is coming out clean...turn car off remove rag from radiator and reconnecupper radiator hose..the drainplug is at the bottom of the radiator on the side of radiator that is on the drivers side of the car....remove drain plug and drain water left in radiator..replace drain plug and crank vehicle and fill radiator with coolant recommended for your vehicle... Sounds more complicated than it really is..other option take to a repair shop and have them flush with machine..usually around 100 bucks at ashop..Iif you have any questions Iwill be glad to answer..

Why is my car leaking water out of the radiator cap only when the heat is off but when the heat is on it don't leak ???


turning the heat on lowers the temperature of the water running through the engine which in turn lowers the pressure in the radiator

My son's car overheated. Went to get some anti


The overheating is caused by the sludge. It is very easy to correct this problem. Remove the radiator cap and open the drain valve at the bottom of radiator. If possible, remove the reservoir and flush out with water. Make sure to get all sludge out of reservoir, then reinstall. Once the radiator stops draining, insert water hose (without nozzle) and turn water on. Keep the drain valve open. Run water through radiator until it runs clear. Once it runs clear, start the engine and let it run while keeping the water running through radiator. Allow engine to run until the thermostat opens up. Continue running water through radiator with engine running until the water from drain runs clear. Once you have done that, turn off the engine. Close the drain valve and refill radiator with proper mixture of coolant and water. Once radiator is filled, start engine and let circulate through engine. Coolant level will drop as the coolant starts circulating. Shut off engine and top off radiator. Fill the reservoir with the required amount of coolant. Testing the coolant at least once a year will help prevent this from happening again. Coolant should be replace a minimum of five years, less if coolant bottle specifies.

How do I flush the radiator


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, leave the water run 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.

How to flush the anti-freeze in1997 gran marquis


remove bottom and top caps from radiator, turn car on, place water hose in radiator, turn water on slow, let run for a while, making sure water is constantly coming out of the bottom of the radiator. keep an eye on hose to ensure water is not coming out too fast and that the hose does not come out of the radiator. watch color of water at the bottom, wait till it is totally clear before taking the hose out and shutting off the car. make sure you turn car off the allow all the water to come out. replace bottom cap, then fill with 50/50 fluid to proper level and fill side container to proper level as well
