Question Radiator and block flush?

Does anyone happen to know a price on how much they would prob charge to do a flush out on a radiator and a engine block? I have to get mine done tm and was just curious if it will cost me an arm and a leg?

i think you should just do it yourself. Most likely they will overcharge you for something that can be simple and easy in your own drive way with a drain pan and a garden hose.

I bought one of these and it works great. I think it works better than just the hose in the radiator, as it flushes water through the whole system. Using this with their coolant flush makes the water in the end come out like tap water..

You can just detach the upper heater hose and stick your garden hose in the end of that to flush it out. We just did it to Amy's. Flushed all kinds of crap out.
