UNDO THE BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE AND DRAIN IT OUT..REPLACE HOSE.. THEN GET SOME OF THAT BOILING TREATMENT AND LET THAT IDLE FOR 15 OR 20 MIN.. THEN PUT IN NEW COOLANT

This is a stupid simple explanation but it is good. The only thing left out is you need to drain the treatment out before you put in the new coolant.

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

The radiator on a 98 Buick Century is flushed by turning the petcock to drain the coolant. Water is then flushed through the system until all contaminants are removed.

The flush valve for the radiator on a 1999 Buick Century is located on the bottom of the radiator near the vehicle's frame. When it is loosened, the coolant will slowly drain from the vehicle.

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

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.
