Arrow Coolant reservoir left open - dust inside?

Hello all,



Routine check of my fluids a couple of days ago. Picked up some coolant since I noticed it was a bit low...went to put it in today and noticed that I must not have adequately closed the lid to the reservoir as it was flapping open. (The plastic cap for the reservoir, not the metal cap on the radiator).


Looking down inside, I can see that some dust has gotten into the tube.


Do you think I should do a full flush? Any suggestions on the best way to clean so I don't knock more dust down into the reservoir?



This bonehead really appreciates your help and insight

Thank you for the reply, Dave. Embarrassed to admit I didn't know this was an option. Seems like a great solution! Will give it a shot.


Thanks so much for your help!
