Coolant Flush??

Alright, so ive looked EVERYWERE and no were can i find out how to do a WHOLE system coolant flush, ive seen bleeding the rad...ect, but nothing on the whole system, anyone have any guides? Hanes dosnt help either.

and a couple of questions for those in the know

Should the engine be warm?
And what should i use to "flush" the **** out? garden hose?

Im posting this cause my rad cracked and i got a new one and im installing it tmrw, and why not flush to whole system to start my new rads life.

Re: Coolant Flush??

just get prestone coolant system flush.
you dump the bottle in, add water (use garden hose), run the car w/ heat at full blast for 10 or 15 mins (can't remember exact time), drain, fill w/ water, run again, drain, fill with coolant, have a nice day!!

Re: Coolant Flush??

Re: Coolant Flush??

lol fill the radiator first then the reservoir

an you have your bleeder bolt 10mm on top of the thermostat housing
if you dont know were thats at, follow the lower hose all the way up you cant miss it.

Re: Coolant Flush??

you can buy an adapter at the auto part store... it goes inline with your heater hose, and has a garden hose fitting..., just screw hose on, make sure heater is all the way "hot" to open heater valve, remove radiator cap, take out thermostat (optional) and full blast baby

Re: Coolant Flush??

The bleeder bolt for the block is right next to the oil filter on 4th gen Preludes. I know you have a 5th gen but you might want to look there anyway.
