There are kits that are inexpensive that you hook up to your rad hose using a garden hose that would be your best bet it will have instructions with it to tell you how to hook it up

SOURCE: how to flush coolant system dodge 2004 4x4 pick up truck 4.7 engi

After playing "hide and seek" with drains for years, most times finding they will not turn or are otherwise broken, I finally got smart and began just removing the lower hose from the radiator. It is far faster, most times easier to get to and does the job!! Don't do this hot or you will get an unwanted bath of hot antifreeze. Remove the fill cap after you have the hose off.

My coolant isnt circulating,i have heat but low power and high rpm.my car will overheat if I climb hills.


Hey Rayna,,, if you are sure the coolant is not circulating..??.. Then the water pump is no longer functioning.. OR....the coolant passages have partially clogged up.. When you replaced the thermostat , you should have reversed flushed the entire coolant system, check the radiator hoses for wear (they wear out from the inside), flushed the radiator completely..... Do the complete flush and check the hoses.. refill and see how much better it does..

Trans fluid ed in coolant bottle did flush and two week brown oily goo in bottle


Flush coolant system again. Do you have a brown sludge in the oil. Do this get Preston coolant flush, drain radiator drain coolant tank, fill radiator with water, add the Preston run vehicle for about 15 min remove lower radiator hose from radiator. This will allow all residue to be removed from engine. Replace radiator hose. Fill radiator with appropriate amount of coolant. Disconnect tank from system and let water run through tank until it is clear. Reconnect tank and you should be good. Unless you have oil and coolant mixed which means a blown head gasket or cracked block

You wouldn't add new coolant, then ruin it with some type of
flush product

Install the new radiator after you flush the system with clear water
& add new coolant 50/50 or 60/40

Do you have some type of problem that brings this question
about?

Hello, when the last time you have had your truck coolant system serviced? The anit-freeze needs to be reomove the coolant system flushed out (cleaned) Also, maybe a sticky themrastat and it will need to be replace along with a new radaitor cap.

. Clean the radiator inside and out---flush the inside with flush cleaner especially designed for auto coolant systems.
Flush the engine block this can be done with the radiator at the same time.
Replace the thermastat
replace the radiator cap with the correct pressure cap. GB...stewbison

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

My truck only overheats when the a/c is on


Start with the simple and replace the thermostat and also replace the coolant. The Dex-cool is only good for 150,00 miles or up to 5 years and any thing longer then that, the coolant crystallizes causing a flow restriction throughout your cooling system.
There is a TSB for thew servicing of coolant that needs to be done before replacing the Dex-cool. The cooling system needs to be flushed out to get the crystal deposit out of the system if there is any.
Gm uses Preston radiator flush to clean out the radiator and heater core of any deposit that will restrict the coolant from flowing throughout the system. Once the system has been flushed out, replace the thermostat and replace the Dex-cool with a 50/50 mix of water and Dex-cool for the best result in cooling. Too much water and the coolant will boil over and too much Dex- cool will jell up causing poor circulation.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

I put stop leak in radiator and now the car blows cold air vs hot air when running the heater. why?


The stop leak have restricted the coolant flow to your heater core. You can try flushing out the Stop leak with Preston Radiator flush or replace the heater core. Once Cooling system flushed out, replace thermostat, radiator cap and repair coolant leak. Good luck and hope this helps, and Note: Common Black kitchen Pepper does great as a radiator stop leak without leaving any residue and can be cleaned out of the system with water and not coolant flush. Two table spoon is more then enough to stop a small leak. Good luck and keep me posted friend.
