How do I flush the radiator?


flushing tee cap....a flushing tee is added during a service by most cooling system technicians. to make the heater hose accessible. inspect the hoses that go to your " firewall" or engine compartment bulkhead.in the event someones added it: it can be found there. if not, you may find one at the part store. determine the hose diameter so you can select the correct part. i recommend installing a metallic "mender" instead of leaving it in there. the day it decides to have a sticky thermostat, that kind of plastic can cause a large leak and you would lose all your treated coolant.

Flush radiator


To flush your radiator. Find where the two hoses go into the firewall in your engine compartment and disconnect them.Next, take off your radiator cap and open the drain valve located on the bottom left side of you radiator.Using a garden hose with a sprayer attachment,spray water into one of the hoses from off of your firewall.This will flush out your entire system till the water comes out clear.If you want to flush out your heater core do the same thing into the hose connections for the heater core.

Need a pic to show me which is the intake heater core hose on my '97 Lumina. Which hose do I cut to install a flush kit? Thanks!!


Technically it does not matter which heater hose you use.
When the garden hose is attached to the tee fitting, and you open the drain for the radiator, clean water will flow thru the cooling system with the engine running.
Keep in mind you may need to take the thermostat out to get flow without the engine being hot.

Check engine licht comes on after driving for a few days wat do i look for?


check your thermostat and make sure you have antifreeze 50/50. My 2000 Chevy impala was blowing cold air, but the previous owner had put some radiator stop leak in the radiator that clogged the whole system. I used a garden hose and flushed the heater core and the water pump.

Flushing the Radiator


I would get a Prestone Flushing Kit, it comes with a tee to install into the heater hose and then you can hook up a garden hose to the tee, with the supplied adapter, run the hose until you get clear water coming out of the radiator. Remove the garden hose and install the cap. Drain the water out of the radiator and refill with straight anti-freeze.

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.

Trying to flush radiator, where is plug in block, or can I just take bottom hose off radiator, to drain all coolant.


go to auto zone/ O"rileys and buy a flush kit, it is a kit that allows you to cut, a heater hose and install a TEE with a cap on it, the cap end is also the hookup for a water hose, wait until the engine is cool, cut the hose install TEE, hook up water hose, remove radiator cap, turn water on low, crank engine and flush until water is clear, reinstall cap and your block,radiator is flushed, don"t forget to put in coolant

Heater not heating, but it blows


Sounds like a clogged heater core, try flushing out the whole system and putting in a flushing Tee on to the heater core hose inside the engine compartment, There will be 2 hoses coming out of the fire wall possibley on the passenger side that go into and come out of the heater core, The Tee can take a garden hose connected to it,[3/4"] hose i think ,measure to be safe all you have to do is cut one of the hoses and install the Tee with 2 clamps and attach a hose, first i would attach 1 side to the Tee and attach the hose but don't attach the other hose just yet ,flush out the heater core first then switch the Tee to the other hose and leave off the other hose so that you flush out the core from the other direction and what ever is clogging up the core doesn't go into the rest of the system.then hook up everything and bring the vevicle up to temp and repeat this process [USE ONLY WATER TO FLUSH OUT ] BE CAREFUL NOT TO BURN YOURSELF WITH THE HOT WATER , PUT A RAG OVER THE TEE WHEN DISCONNECTING THE LAST TURNS ON THE CLAMP.Also change out the thermostat under the hood.
