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..

Where is the radiator cap 2001 mercury cougar V6 diagram


The drain plug is actually just a screw that requires a large phillips head to remove. It is located on the passenger side at the bottom of the radiator. The best way to locate it is to find the tube that runs from the coolant reservoir to the radiator and look underneath where it hits the radiator. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am assuming that the resrvoir under the hood near the passenger's side is for coolant?


Yes it is.If you need to know for sure follow the small overflow hose underneath the radiator cap it runs from the radiator to the coolant tank.

I want to learn how to drain and flush my radiator. I need help on how to do so without making as mess


well its bound to make a little mess but you should have a drain plug on the radiator at the bottom towards the engine side on one of the 2 tanks (sides of radiator ) unscrew drain plug and let drain into a pail or pan ( 2 gallon ) after it drains remove lower radiator hose. use a garden hose and fill radiator and let it flush for a little, hook lower radiator hose back, tighten drain plug and fill with a 50/50 mix new antifreeze,

Can a worn out coolant cap cause overheating


There is no radiator cap on the Northstar engine.
The only cap is on the surge tank (or expansion tank) and is pressurized.

So the answer is Yes, a faulty surge tank cap will result in the loss of coolant and therefore lead to overheating.

The most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line(small hose).The purge line is designed to purge air out of the cooling system.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank (not the cap) ,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.
If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.Or trace the hose back until you find the blockage.
The hose goes in to the engine to a crossover and comes out the other side close to the thermostat housing,the blockage may be there.

    What is the hose for that comes out from the top of the radiator for and where does it go connected


    This hose connects the engine to the radiator. Coolant flows thru the thermostat located where the hose attaches to the engine into the radiator to cool it.

    2000 Lincoln ls overheating


    There is a hose on the side of the coolant resevoir that has a straight blade screwdriver fitting in it. Open the fitting and this will bleed the heads on the LS. Without opening this you will never get the air out of the head, trust me.
