At what mileage should you doa radiator flush in a 2000 outback wagon?
Generally Surbaru wants a radiator flush as part of the 60k service.
However you have some leeway here.
To flush a Toyota Previa radiator, first drain the antifreeze in the radiator into a bucket. This is done by turning the valve at the bottom of the radiator. Close the valve and add a radiator flush product purchased at an automotive parts store. Follow the directions on the bottle of flush. This usually means running the vehicle for a certain amount of time and then draining the radiator again.
The valve you're referring to is the radiator petcock. If yours is equipped with one, it will be 2-3 inches from the bottom of the radiator. It looks like a bolt sticking out of the radiator. Remove this and your coolant will drain away. If not, just remove the lower radiator hose and proceed that way. *Remember when flushing out your cooling system, in order to do a complete flush, you must flush in the…
drain on bottom of radiator, only flush if it's real dirty and brown, otherwise just drain and refill... also in the book ...everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available for FREE to make copies of...read up and repair like a PRO!

Drain and properly dispose (recycle) the old coolant. Put one bottle of Radiator Flush(from am auto parts store)in the radiator and refill with water.

Refill radiator with 50/50 mix of coolant and water or all premixed coolant.
If you have replaced the water pump thermostat and heater core and ran water through the radiator but it is still overheating Should you have the radiator pressure tested?
Buy a radiator flush kit and radiator flush additive from your local auto parts store. Follow the package instructions. You can also buy a Haynes or Chilton's repair manual. For the 1984-2001 XJ Cherokee it is highly recommend that you not use the radiator drain valve as it is plastic and rather fragile. Removing the lower radiator hose is faster and easier for draining the cooling system.
every 5 years or 100,000 miles you can flush the cooling system , drain the system firset , fill with water , add the flush and let the car run until it reaches normal operating temp ( 180-210) , let the car cool down and then drain the water and the flush liquid out , fill up the radiator with the new coolant , a 50/50 mix , make sure you let all the air…
To flush a radiator on an Acura RL you will need to make sure the care is level. Remove the radiator cap from the radiator under the hood. Place a bucket under the radiator and remove the radiator plug. This is a white plug located on the bottom of the radiator which may be hidden by the splash guards at the front of the vehicle. After the radiator fluid has been drained replace the white…
