cooling system maintenace to do list
Truck was heating up a bit last summer, was a hot day pulling a pass, but more than i remember it doing.
So was thinking about pulling the radiator. I would clean it inside/outside. Flush out the 20 year old fluid.
Before i pull it, should i put in any chemicals to clean the system? what would you recommend? I've always wondered about something like CLR and just run for a 15 minutes or so. Or just pull the radiator and soak it. I did install a coolant filter a few years ago.
thought i would pull the oil cooler to inspect it also. I've read some about clogging issues. Don't seem too common, but while i have the coolant drained.
T stat isn't too old, but would be a good time to change it.
Anything else i should do while got the coolant out of it?
