I'll toss this one in here...

You might try using Cascade liquid dishwashing detergent as a flush.

I've been told by a couple of mechanics (neither of whom knew each other, and at different times) that it works FAR better than most commercially available radiator flush chemicals.

It's also friendlier to YOU and the environment; it's biodegradeable, although you'd never know it by looking at the ingredients list.

The only downside on that info is that they never told me how much, or how long. I was going to do it on the Freightliner, but wound up not having any place to dump the original (still serviceable) coolant. I was going to use the entire bottle (bought at WalMart) and run it for an hour or so.

In any case, you'll need to run the engine long enough to fully open the thermostat and let it run through the radiator for a good 20-30 minutes.
