Re: What is the proper procedure /Coolant Flush???
Hey John, get yourself a reverse flush kit. They're about $4 at Wal-Mart.
Then I usually drain the system and fill it with water and a CLR mix. I run the engine up to temp and then let it cool off.
Once cool, I start the reverse flush procedure. Then I repeat the process, rinse/flush/shampoo/repoo...
If it's not been done for a while, I don't flush anything through the heater core. I bypass it. If you don't you could force debris in the heater core and plug it.
Reverse flush the heater core in a separate operation.
Then when done, I mix 50/50 anti-freeze to water and install it in the engine... burp the system and you're done.
See... easy as pie.
