Fluid Flush help!!??
Hey guys, I dont know if I am posting this in the right place, but please bare with me.
I have a 2006 F150 4.2L V6.
I am wanting to flush the Coolant and Power steering fluids...(along with everything else, these are just the 2 that I dont know how to do)
Whats the best way to flush the system?
Haynes book says drain the radiator then remove the thermostat and stick a water hose in the radiator and let the water come up out of the thermostat port...this seems like it would leave water in the block though, and I would have to replace the thermostat gasket.
Some guys told me to get the prestone flush kit, but I dont understand how that gets all the coolant out of the block, or even how to use it...
I have also heard that you should drain the radiator, then undo the drain plug on the side of the block, and then put a water hose through it...but I havent seen a drain plug on this motor, and the haynes manual does not mention it.
Soooo....ideas, thoughts. Ive never flushed the coolant before on this truck, but I am not an idiot when it comes to working on vehicles, so any advice is must appreciated...
Power steering fluid.
Please help, a few guys told me to disconnect the hose after the heat sink for the PS fluid and just let it drain....is this really the best way?
Thank you all very much.
