I don't know for sure, but can't you just get a radiator flush kit to get out the sludge? It's worth asking the guy at the parts house about.

In such extreme cases of cooling system sludge build up, I would take it to a shop for a professional flushing and cleansing.

I would suggest a car radiator specialist type shop - they'll know how to NOT cause more damage to the system.

See "Related Questions" below for more about flushing it yourself

Remove passenger side fan that is attached to the radiator. Drain freon out of system. Remove electrial plug on compressor. Remove bolt that is located between the two hoses on an aluminum block attached to compressor. Remove the serpentine belt. Remove the 4 bolts that are located on the radiator side of the compressor. You now have it off but be careful not to damage the radiator when lifting it out.
