Flushing the cooling system.

How exactly do you do this using washing powder? Mine is overdue for it so tomorrow's the day and I want to make sure I know what I need to do to do this properly...

Washing up liquid is the best bet as it dissolves oil and gunge.

Add a few squirts, run engine for 2 mins... drain coolant from bottom rad hose

Refill with water and repeat as needed, until it's clear

Then rinse it out thoroughly a couple of times before refilling with correct antifreeze mix.

No problems fella. Go to Tesco or Asda and buy a litre of economy washing up liquid for 12p. It's also awesome at cleaning oily hands too and PVC sinks/doors/windows

While you're there, get vinegar too. Use a cloth and smear your wiper blades with it once a fortnight ;)

The money you've saved can be spent on hookers or mailed straight to me, your choice.
