  • Expert Hi,
    Radiator flushing can be done at home also .Let the engine cool.Open the radiator cap , later open the pipe connection at bottom .And refit connection , top up with new coolant and water .Ratio as mentioned on coolant bottle.The advantage of getting it done at service center is that the radiator is cleaned with high pressure water jet hence amount of scaling removed will be more. For engine overheating thorough inspection of radiator shroud assy is essential along with pump.

  • if u feel ur temperature indication crossing 60 or 70% of meter on panel and water/coolant ratio and level is ok then u must release air locking inside radiator by crack opening of air release point on radiator located at left side of radiator or by loosing screw on the coolant rubber pipe near air intake assembly. do it when slight hot to avoid burning.
