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:
    Tama si Chieffy... P40 lang 5 gallons ng distilled and you use less than 2 gallons for a typical radiator... kahit anong kanto ngayon may distilled water refilling or a sari-sari that sells it... it's no excuse of using tap water anymore...

    yes, distilled water yung nilalagay sa batteries. Iba iba rin kasi ang nga bottled waters, yung Absolute is distilled, yung iba naman e mineral water at yung nabibili sa water refilling stores e purified. So kung distilled ang kailangan, just check the bottle na distilled nga ito.

    so yung absolute e pwede ring battery fluid?. mahal nga lang.. eheheh...

    hmmm... masubukan nga yan.. pinaplano ko na rin naman kasing i-flush yung rad ko eh....

    so ano ba dapat talaga process?. use a flushing solution?. o just drain it.. run a hose on top, wait until the water coming out at the bottom starts to become clean, then close the plug, fill it with coolant/water (distilled) mixture then go??

    so far yan ang ginagawa ko. drain, use hose, then plug, then fill with tap water lang... walgn coolant...

    Ako din due na yata for flushing.

    What i'll do is to drain the water from the radiator and put a hose with running water while engine is running. Tapos kapag malinis na i'll put a 50/50 mixture ng distilled water and coolant sa reservior tapos i'll put it in the radiator then fill the remaining with water.

    Tama ba ang gagawin ko? :D

    Bakit kailangan na umandar ang makina while flushing the radiator?
