About this deal

It wasn’t like this when I got it, I need to flush it and see if it’s just really old or if somehow oil or other debris is getting into it. A new video explains the individual steps for flushing the cooling system, as a dirty cooling system and airlocks reduce cooling capacity and can lead to serious consequences such as pre-damage to the water pump mechanical seal.

With the flush kit, flushing can take place continuously using a garden hose rather than repeatedly filling the radiator. Your heater isn’t working: If you notice your heater failing to get hot, this can be one of the most obvious signs that your coolant needs changing. The engine should be cooled down and the coolant drained before cleaning the radiator, engine block and, if possible, the heat exchanger, one after the other. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

In addition, the hoses can be inspected from the inside at the point of the cut when using the flush tee. It can damage your thermostat: Small pieces of metal in your coolant can be a hazard to your thermostat, too.

Your car's engine is running hotter than usual: If you feel that your car's engine is much hotter, it may be time to change the coolant by doing a radiator flush. The automotive Prestone radiator flush kit would be for flushing the E/G side of an engine's cooling system. Later they discovered that a more effective coolant included ethylene glycol, which raised the boiling point and lowered the freezing point of water, allowing it to remain fluid over 212 degrees Fahrenheit and under 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

There is a bolt attached to the engine block, you're going to have to look for it, where the block meets the oil pan. When this lights up, it's important that you check your coolant levels as soon as possible to reduce any potential damage. Remove the radiator cap: Remove the radiator cap and unscrew the drain valve, which will be located towards the bottom of the radiator.

Use the flush solution: Now you have an empty radiator, you can begin flushing your car radiator system to ensure that it is completely clean before you add fresh fluid. Apply the cooling system cleaner according to the manufacturer's instructions through the radiator or cooling system reservoir and add some clean water in with it until it's filled to the "max" level indicated on the reservoir.

Over time this can cause leaks that will inhibit your car's performance and might mean you need to replace your radiator (although there are some other causes of leaks you should be aware of). Many car problems can be prevented using Wynn’s additive products which are an affordable, efficient and easy-to-use. Drain the flush product and water: After having your engine on for 10—15 minutes, turn it off and wait for the engine to cool.

Yes, but bear in mind it's just a schematic showing pipe routing - so actual placement of parts might be off a little. Your dentist may tell you to brush your teeth every morning and night, but you know if you’ve just eaten peanut brittle or caramel, you might want to brush your teeth midday too. The manufacturer's guide that comes with your car should give you recommended coolant change intervals, which will tell you how often to do a radiator flush for your specific model. Are you wanting to flush the E/G (ethylene glycol) side, or the seawater side of your cooling system? Our experts will remove and safely dispose of your old coolant, replacing it with manufacturer approved Comma coolant to provide maximum protection against corrosion, overheating and freezing.Ideally all these newer engines need the coolant system to be vac'd down by coolant refill vacuum kit, then that kit is used to reflood the system, I've just done that job on my 2011 S4, it all went very well except for getting the "quick release/quick fit" to lock correctly first or even 10th time, very annoying! I was mainly making reference to what I did on my S4, but most of it carries across to all these newish engines. It can cause leaks: Over time, small pieces of metal from your engine will contaminate your coolant, causing damage to parts like your gasket seals and hoses. To keep this essential fluid working it at its best, your radiator should be flushed and your coolant changed roughly every two years.
