How to SUPER FLUSH your Cars Cooling System

  • Published on: 06 March 2015
  • Learn how to flush your cooling system including the radiator, heater core, and engine block. I go though every step to SUPER FLUSH your cooling system completely. My truck's cooling system was really really bad and it needed a good flush. Now the cooling system is filled with brand new coolant and is clean!

    If your system is old or dirty, that dirt could be clogging holes in hoses, seals, and gaskets so take that into consideration when you do this.

    Black Socket Set I use:
    Hose Clamp Pliers:
    Large Drain Pan:

    It's not "Gravity" that causes the coolant to drain, it's "Atmospheric" pressure!

    Hey, Chris, really liked the video! One question: I know that on some GM motors there is a plug to drain the coolant out of the engine block; is there such a plug on other motors as well?

    Hey chris im HUGE FAN! all your videos are great! Thanks for all the info and genuinely wanting to help people out, i have a question im very on low $$ work 13hrs a day 6 days a week and can't really afford a shop...iv tryed my best to fix my vehical and can't seem to. My vehical was running just fine always maintained it but 3 days ago my car died, and when i turned the key it would just click and flash lights and would kinda want to turn but not really, had to jump start it worked good for another day no issues, but than died a second time, jump started again and worked again but i got a check engine light for low voltage, and also my radio reset so assuming other stuff might of as well im not sure, but took my buttery was told it was bad so i had it change ti a brand new one. My car has worked normalfor 2 days now but durring those 2 days my temp gauge has been higher than normal my car has always maintained normal temp right before getting half way on the half line on temp gauge but for the last 2 days it has been just passed it or right on it, when i turn the A/C on and the gauge will stay just above the half line and everyonce in a while it will go close to the line before it reaches the last 2 lines for overheating, still good i would but hasn't reached the bad area while that happnes i just turn on the heater and it will shoot back down to just above the half line, durring drives when i have my temp on the middle with no ac on my gauge will go down when i drive to just above half way and might go a little higher than that when in the city but i can notice it moving between temps, hope i explained as best as i could, really need the help thank you!

    If you could do it, we can do it... Hmmm, one variable is how easy or difficult it is to remove the thermostat on a different vehicle. Great video though. Thanks for posting.

    Chris, get a torque wrench. Correct torque is not really that important on a lot of things, but VERY important when aluminum is involved. The video was very good, but the just guessing at 10 ft lbs. ALso, if a couple drips is gonna throw your serpentine belt off, you got other major problems.

    If your vehicle has had stop leak in the past don't do a flush with the chemical. It will remove the stop leak. A flush in general may not be the way to go. Thanks Chris your a great teacher

    Wouldn't it been faster and easier with a T-connector in the heater hose and back flush with a garden hose?! Hmmmmm - just saying...

    21:54 Top Tip: Shake Your Car: Yes but please don't shake your car by the engine bay area as Chris did but rather use the door frame in case the engine hood collapses from shaking.. that is if you'd like to keep all 10 fingers!

    It didn't get hot because you forgot to pick the thermostat back in.
