Rust in the radiator causes damage to the engine by preventing cooling.

According to Valvoline, radiators should be serviced every 24,000 miles.


1. Up thrust motorcar hood and remove radiator cap.A properly functioning radiator cools a vehivle's engine, preventing overheating. Rust can accumulate inside the radiator when coolant is not regularly changed. Performing a outright flush of the coolant Testament remove rust from the inside.

Most caps can be screwed off counter-clockwise.

2. Situate the misuse container under vehivle, directly underneath radiator. Place the withdraw plug underneath the radiator and remove. This may be located in a baby amplitude requiring a socket to be removed. Grant to withdraw completely into fritter container.

3. Moderate drain plug and fill radiator with radiator flush or baptize. Turn heater on to the highest setting. Permit car to run for 10 minutes.

4. Repeat steps 1 and 2.

5. Raise front of car using a jack. This helps coolant to arrive all areas of radiator. Replace drain plug and fill with a 50/50 combination of antifreeze and water. View under car and check hoses to identify possible leaks.
