Fist buy some PrestoneCoolantFlush and add to your radiator and let it run in you system for minimum 30min.. AutoZone or any Parts Store or Walmart should carry PrestonCoolingFlush and a flushing kit aound $30.00 or less ..I had to get this when I needed to flush my system ...all it is a T-port that connects to the hose running to the radiator and to the heater core..you cut the hose and insert the T-port and clamp down with some screw-in c-clamps..then on top of the T-port is a threaded end for a water hose to be screwed on..apply water hose to top of T-port..After that unscrew the radiator cap off while the engine off then turn on water to the water hose ..unscrew the drain plug at bottom side of radiator and let drain also...Crank the Rover and turn the heater on high and let the water run through the entire system until the water turns completely clear then turn off car and unscrew the water hose and leave the T-port on there for just in case for another flushing be easier next time just apply seal off cap to the top of T-port and tighten the drain plug on bottom of radiator and apply the right amount of coolant then apply the radiator cap back on and it should be then completely flushed..Hope this was of any help...Good Luck

It is best to have it done professionally as they clean the cooling system as well as back flush it.

Back flushing on a cooling system is when you get all of the trapped air out of your cars cooling system. This will make your vehicle run better after you do it.

If you do not have a radiator cap once you drain the radiator, you can use several options to flush the cooling system. You can easily do this by filling up the system with as much water as you can and then warm it up.รŠ

Once you have determined and repaired how the oil got into the cooling system eg. head gasket , oil cooler, or turbo, you need to thoroughly flush out the cooling system with a chemical cooing system flush and plenty of water.

there is a drain plug on the bottom tank of the radiator

Probably still has air trapped in the system from an improper refill procedure.

Entire cooling system should be flushed to remove dirt, scale, rust and sediment buildup which will corrode and clog/ruin your engine/cooling system

Purchase a Prestone flush kit, a container of radiator flush, and new antifreeze at a automotive parts store. There are directions on the flush kit package. What you will be doing is adding the chemical to your cooling sytem then inserting a flush tee into a heater hose and back flushing the system using your garden hose. Works very well.

Drain the cooling system and flush it with plenty of water. You might need to remove the thermostats in order for good circulation of the flush. First of all you need to remedy the source of the fuel entering the cooling system.

It would be in your best interest to go to bgfindashop.com and have someone in you area do the flush, back flush, for you as they clean the system. Then they do a total fluid exchange to include the heater and then add a rust inhibitor.

They sell flush kits at most auto parts stores. They contain the instructions & you do it with a garden hose.

You can flush your Caterpillar diesel engine cooling system by removing the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator. What a running water hose in the top of the radiator and leave it run.

No, regular flushes of the cooling system are necessary to keep mineral deposits from forming on the inside of the engine and radiator. Mineral deposits can partially clog the cooling system and form an insulating barrier that will keep your cooling system from working properly.

If the problem your having is in your 'cooling system' , flushing it out could help out a lot.

This is the result of a dirty cooling system. Corrosion is occuring in the engine block and a cooling system flush is required. Always use a good quality corrosion inhibitor in your cooling system to prevent overheating and possible head gasket damage.
