You need, knife/ gear clamp,screwdriver /nut driver (for gear clamp) and garden hose
with water pressure hook up hot water is better
you can buy a can or to of rad flush but dishwasher soap works good (it wont suds up )
also rad flush kit with garden hose addapter (most kit are compatable)
1-drain existing coolant in container for recycling
2-locate heater return hose to block and cut to installed flush kit addapter
always better to reveres flussh system with engine off and rad cap removed
drain valve closed hook up garden hose and run hot tap water true system
it will eventually cove out your rad cap (surge tank) until it runs clear
know sut off the garden hose add your cleaning additives installed rad filler cap
run engine per direction on can or 10 to 15 min. sut off engine removed filler cap
open drain valve on radiator and drain out system open water from garden hose
run water until clean water run true shut off garden hose and removed cap off with
cap supplied with kit let system drain completly . repeat cleaning operation until
water runs clear
add 1 jug of concentrated coolant (will mix with ressidual water and finish filling
system with premix used recomended coolant only for your engine your freeze
point of new coolant should be above spec and will be fine
do not used pure concentrated coolant only .your ownners manual spec section will
give capacities system will hold

The infamous Exploder transmission. Try a tranny flush and new gasket. More likely it needs a new transmission.

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.

I have no heat in my 2000 ford expedition. The blower motor works but only blows cold air. As far as i can tell the heater core hasnt been by-passed.


Time to either flush or replace the heater core as it may be plugged with rust build-up. I'm assuming the engine is running at normal operating temperature, if not then the thermostat may need replaced.

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

The heater of my expedition XLT 2000 is not working what is a fact


I have a 2000 XLT also. Is yours blowing luke warm air at best? If so then you need to have your core flushed. The dealership wanted $800 to put a new core in it. You can get a coolant flush done but you must specifically ask them if it flushes the core. 99% of the coolant flushes bypass the heater core. If they sound unsure make them ask someone else otherwise you will waste $90+. You can flush it yourself but it is very tricky. I can take some pictures if you need them.

If you have no warm air at all then your core is most likely bad or clogged beyond flushing.

No heat in the front and rear of the truck but the


No engine water is getting into the mini radiators. You could attempt an engine flush to clear out debris... or have it done professionally. A failed temperature control is a possibility - but clogged cooling system is MUCH more probable.

Flush TWICE, with new radiator flush each time.
Be sure the heater is on max temp with decent fan speed. Run for 30 minutes on each load.
Then clean water,
Then 50-50 mix of antifreeze and water... If it was clogged, that will improve it greatly!!
If not, you need the cleaning anyway... then the temperature switch can be addressed.

2001 expedition heater does not heat well


I would flush the whole system with radiater flush then replace with new coolant. But make sure the heater is set to full heat when you flush it ( while driving around the block with flush in it) so the small radiater that has the hot water flowing through it gets flushed too. It may have some build up in it stopping the full flow of heated water/coolant through. If it is bad enough may need to remove and spray out the rubber hoses from the motor to the heater core, and possibly remove the heater core and hose it out to make it flow better and therefore increase the heating ability. Hope this helps.
