    some ways, it helps. pag talagang madumi na o seldomly flushed yung radiator. yung radiator kasi accumulates rust and dirt, which hardens up over time. these flushing chemicals might help in dissolving those accumulated dirt. although using flushing chemicals is not better than doing a complete radiator cleanup which some shops does.

    Hindi naman papasok sa makina yung radiator flush chemicals. Hanggang water jackets lang sila ng engine block mo.

    Radiator flushing is good as long as di pa luma yung makina. Pag nag flushing kasi, tinatanggal nung chemical yung mga accumulated rust. Ang problema, pag may kalumaan na yung makina (engine block) pati yung mga maliliit na particles nung block natatanggal.

    To elaborate things further, may mga parte ng lumang makina na lusaw (metal flakes) na dahil sa kalawang pero hindi parin tinatagusan ng tubig dahil makapal pa ito. Pag dinaanan ng flushing ito matatanggal lahat nung lusaw na parte ng makina at ninipis yung parte na pinanggalingan nito. Ang magiging epekto nito ay ninipis yung metal at sa konting pressure lang ay bibigay na agad at pagsisimulan na ng tagas.

    Lahat nito ay ayon sa aking ekpiryensya lamang. Ginamitan ko ng radiator flushing yung makina na walong anyos na at pagkatapos ng ilang araw ay nakita ko na sa loob ng radiator yung mga metal flakes at sinundan na ng tagas ng tubig mula sa block ng makina.

    just my two! :mrgreen:

    i think kaya dapat i flush ang radiator ay para malinis ang passage ng water sa block ng makina for better cooling ng makina para di mag overheat di ko lang alam kung every ilang years before you do it :lol:

    After cleaning your radiator, put a coolant with rust inhibitor specially when you use ordinary tap water in your radiator. For best results, use distilled water to prevent mineral(the same mineral deposits you see inside your kettle) build up in your radiator. HTH :wink:

    palagay ko mabuti pa pa-overhaul ng radiator 200 lang kesa abala sa pag alis ng natirang flushing fluid. masama kasing may matira sa radiator and yes baka masira water jacket. gagamit ka pa ng distilled water, paano kung kailangan mo na magkarga pero wala distilled water? overhaul na lang less hassle pa.

    GoThicbLuE, kung wala namang tagas ang cooling system, di na kailan magkarga nang magkarga ng tubig. Yung dating ride ko di ako nagdagdag ng tubig sa loob ng 2 years dahil di naman siya nababawasan. Gumamit lang ako ng distilled water nung nagpalit na ako ng coolant. Nang masira ang radiator cap ko, saka lang ako nagdagdag ng tubig at distilled water ang ginamit ko para walang contamination ng minerals. You will notice a big difference sa radiator na gumagamit ng tap water at radiator na gumagamit ng distilled water. Para sa bagong linis na radiator(through flushing or overhaul), it would be better to start right by using distilled water. Less problems pa in the future in terms of maintenance kasi naiiwasan ang pagbabara ng radiator. If a person finds it more convenient to use tap water, I suggest he puts a coolant that contains rust inhibitors to prevent clogging(rust and minerals) and have a better cooling system at the same time. :wink:
