Drain the radiator by removing the plug on the bottom of the radiator or by removing the lower rad hose. Take the thermostat out which is at the engine end of the upper hose. Start the engine and run water from the garden hose through the radiator letting it flow out the upper rad hose until it is clean. If it has buildup in the radiator you will want ot run some commercial radiator cleaner through it. When it is clean, drain all of the water out and install 2 gallons of coolant and the thermostat.. Dispose of used coolant properly.

How do you flush the radiator of a '99 gmc safari?

In order to flush the radiator on my 1996 Safari I had to remove the radiator fan cover under the hood (there are 6 bolts holding it in place). You will find a plug on the bottom of the radiator that has to be unscrewed and the old water will drain. I ususally put a hose in the cap and let the engine run (with the heater on) to flush out all the old fluid. Then re-plug the radiator, re-install the fan cover and re-fill with fresh fluid.
