Hi . Dont take this as gosple cause i havent done this yet. First you need to locate the drain for the rad. Some one on this site suggested that it may be on the right corner of the rad when you are facing the car. Seems you need to attach a piece of hose to it for proper drainagee since it comes out of the side or somewhere there abouts???????. There may also be another drainage hole located somewhere on the engine block somewhere on the passinger side . Now, I am not sure of this so I am going to check for myself. Now, if you manage to locate all these dranage holes then the rest is easy. Remove the coolant cap when the engine is cool, open all the dranage holes and let all the coolant escape. Pour in rad flush,tap up with WATER (clean)and run engine with AC on high fir about ten minutes. Open drainage and let everthing out>. Fill engine with clean water and run for another ten minutes then drain> Mix 50/50 dex-cool and water and fill to just below cold mark. Turn engine on let warm up, shut engine off let cool down and then fil to cool mark . Done

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.

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.

Get a new radiator or flush it out?

It would be best to disconnect the coolant lines and flush the core after the radiator flush. This will clear any sediment from the core.

Drain the radiator. Leaving the drain plug open, run water from a hose into the radiator and continue to flush until the out coming water is clear.

In order to flush the radiator you will need to remove the lower tray to access the hose. Unscrew the drain plug attached to the hose and let the radiator drain.
