    I have the same dealbut no one seems top have the answer



1 Answer

The way that I flushed mine out was to remove the upper radiator hose at the radiator and kept pouring water in the radiator until I could see clear water coming out of the detached hose. Keep an eye on the open end of the radiator because once it is filled with water, it will overflow out of the open end. Also, be careful of the water coming out of the detached hose, it will be very hot.

Why would there be transmission fluid in radiator?

Most vehicles with automatic transmissions cool the transmission fluid by running it through a cooler which is actually in the radiator, If there is a leak in this part, known as an intercooler you will get trans fluid in your radiator and water in your transmission. The one to worry about is the latter. Your transmission is made up of clutches and bands which are basically resin impregnated paper glued to a steel band or clutch plate. The glue that is used is water soluble. Meaning the water will cause your transmission clutches and bands to disintegrate. The water will also cause other problems like rusting valves in the valve body. The easy fix is to buy a external cooler which either attaches to the outside of the radiator or car frame and re route the cooler lines through it bypassing the intercooler. Also plug or cap off the fittings to said intercooler or you will have a radiator leak. Flush out both the cooling system and the transmission with clean fluids to remove contamination. If you do this quick enough you may be OK.

How to flush the radiator on a chev blazer 2000 LS

If you are simply flushing the radiator, fill it with clean water (bottled is best) and run it through a few times. There is also "radiator flush" products that help break up build up in the radiator, that you can use; purchase at auto parts dealer near you - also, it's best to flush the block as well. You local auto parts dealer will have a tool (fairly cheap) that will allow you flush the entire system, as well as specific instructions.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

remove radiator and power wash fins they could be blocked then install again then get a good engine flush drain water then refill with flush and water then start and drive read the flush bottle for instructions then let all out again then refil with clean water and a good coolant , remember to blead the system when filling every time you drain water etc, hope this helps. it will work.

I have a 1993 jeep cherokee and it stared 2 over heat and i changed the water pump and took out the thermostat and still over heats and rattle

First, put your thermostat back in Use a new 195 degree.Your computer will not function correctly if you dont. Next, check that the electric fan is coming on at about 210 or just a bit higher. You didn't mention which engine, but I'll assume its a 4.0. When filling the radiator, if it fills very slowly and backs up while filling, likely the radiator is plugged up. Sometimes they can be flushed but most times you need to replace them as flush tends to bypass plugged areas and not remove obstructions.
Always re-fill with heater on full hot.

Put stop leak in rad

the only thing I can recommend is to put in a flush tee not the hose going to the water pump but the one going to the engine open up the radiator and drain that first then fill with water get some radiator flush and run the car about ten minutes drain that out using the flush tee and a garden hose and run till it is clear with the engine running after clear close drain plug on radiator and fill with antifreeze and make sure to get all air bubbles out and you should start getting some heat and if you don't after doing all this replace the heater core but check the hoses coming from the heater core to make sure one of them is not plugged
