It really does need to be cleaned as I dont think the guy who gave me the car had done it for a long time so whatever is running through the system looks pretty bad. I just want to be sure of what I am doing beforehand, I dont wanna be like almost every guy I know; winging it and then realising halfway through they have no idea what they are doing lol
Awww, you're no fun Yeah, if ya wanna flush it completely, then remove the thermostat and chuck the hose in there, might wanna have a new thermostat housing gasket to chuck on, hell might as well replace the thermostat itself while you're at it. If you don't want to remove the thermostat there is another option. Just drain the system, fill it with plain water and take it for a run, drain, refill and repeat till the water comes out clear. It's dodgy but it has worked for me in the past.
PS. Just re-read your first post. Please don't run your engine with the cooling system in pieces/drained, that just wouldn't be cool
