Do you want to flush the radiator only, or the entire system?

I should flush the entire system... This t-bird spent most of it's life in N.C. with the extreme cold.. Now down in Fla It's going through 90+ degree days for the next 6 months... So how do you do this? Thanx...

It's relatively simple. Here's a couple articles that are on the Articles pages:

Cooling System Draining Article

Heater Core TSB/Coolant System Bleeding Info (at the bottom of this, there's a "Tip O' D Day" that you should follow).

Read through them a couple times. All in all, the procedure is simple. Just make sure to follow the procedures in these two articles.
