Re: Radiator Flush
You can buy radiator flush at Walmart, Autozone, etc... It's only a few bucks, and has easy to follow instructions. Plus, its made for radiators. I'd use that before I'd use some acid I had laying around.
The weather where you're at should dictate the mixture you use. Standard mix is 50/50, some say 60 antifreeze/40 water. And if it gets hella cold, you can go 70/30.
If you're going to go through the trouble of flushing the system, check all of the hoses too. You may also want to change out your thermostat.
Hope this helps you.
