Im doing this on a fortnightly basis now. Ive got it down to a tee although rad flush tends to loosen the crud so much it blocks the system and the car overheats.

I can even do a "flush" in the motorway services now using the water hose to fill your washer bottle.

Was driving to Holyhead and IO started to get cold air, the expected happened and the system clogged up meaning the car overheated almost immediatley.

I pulled into the shell garage, unplugged the right hand hose which is easier to handle. (I wear strong grippa glves now) and flushed the system, refilled, topped up with anti freeze.

I'm going to have to do a complete matrix change at some point but dont know whats involved.
