How to: Radiator fluid flush & coolant flush

Haven't flushed your cars cooling system in awhile? Here's a brief how for Coolant flush and radiator drain.

TOOLS NEEDED:
- 10MM WRENCH / 10MM DEEP SOCKET(OEM radiator)
- DRAIN PAN
- 2 GALS OF DISTILLED WATER
- 2 CONTAINERS OF ANTIFREEZE(W/ FUNNEL FOR LESS MESS)
- JACK + JACK STANDS

The plug is on the BOTTOM of the radiator(see fig.A), on the passenger side. Jack up car and you will see
only one opportunity for a 10mm hex.

DISCLAIMER: PLEASE DO PROCEDURE ON COLD OR WELL COOLED DOWN CAR, PREVENTS


BURNS FROM HOT COOLANT!!!

FIG.A:

Step 1: Jack up car with Jacks and jack stand, just do passenger side. Place drain pan under drain plug,
loosen plug until fluid comes out(you might want to open fill cap on top of radiator first, releases vacuum
in radiator). Continue to drain until it stops, just like an oil change...drip drip.......drip.......................drip

Also drain and clean the coolant reservoir. While draining the radiator take the time to clean it, and have it
ready with fresh fluid. Super easy to take off...2 bolts 10/12mm I believe, disconnect hose attached.

Step 2: Once old fluid is out, get gallon or 2 of distilled water(depending on how many flushes you do) and
pour into radiator fill cap from top of. Please make sure drain plug is closed. While filling the radiator you
should run the motor and crank the A/C on Heat; max temp. Continue pouring till radiator is full.

Step 3: Drain radiator again which should have a slight mix of left over coolant and majority distilled water.

If you feel you got all the old fluid out then continue to step 4, if not repeat from Step 2.

Step 4: Radiator should be fully drained of the distilled water, time to fill up the car with your preferred mix
of coolant to water. Depending on what climate you live in, you can play with the mix of coolant : water.
Drain plug for radiator should be closed and tightened. Remove drain pan, and lower car to level ground.

Step 5: DO NOT FORGET TO FILL RADIATOR. Do it with the car on the ground and also refill Reservoir
Tank. MAKE SURE TO CHECK FOR LEAKS BEFORE DRIVING OFF!!!

Step 6: BURP system after filling radiator and reservoir.


To burp system remove radiator cap on cooled down or cold engine(radiator should be full of fluid)
start car and let engine idle. It may take a few minutes at idle for the air pocket to find it's way out.
Initially the fluid will pulse and then start to pour over the fill neck. Once you're satisfied, replace lost
coolant and clean up mess.

Side Note: Make sure you are Checking your radiator fans for proper operation. If you have evoscan you
conduct a quick fan test to make sure they are operational. I had one of my fans go out on me and didnt
know it.
