Yes, it's almost March.
Here in Phoenix, that means that summer is almost here. Already we are
in the 80's regularly.  So before it gets to 90s daily and occasional
110s-120s, I want to completely backflush my cooling system, as it is a
liittle sludgy.
Now, I have tried this before, with limited success.  I've run water
through the engine while it ran to flush it out, I've tried some
flushing solutions commercially available, but I always seem to end up
with brownish coolant after just a little while.  Is this symptomatic of
something, or is there another way to flush?
What have any of you guys used?
I had my radiator redone a year and a half ago, and I would like to keep
it nice, as a radiator helps out here.
As per my alternator problem, it seems that a lot of it is the plug,
which keeps falling out.  I'm still having some trouble with the
ignition light glowing at night, but I believe it to be bad
connections.  Hopefully I'll get that worked out.
that's enough for now
