you can get some nice corrosive acid stuff to flush the cooling system, just make sure its really flushed out afterwards, or it will corrode something expensive.
high pressure water jets in the pipes feeding into the heater matrix works as well.
should clear most of the algae farm you have been breeding in the cooling system. dont forget to take off the thermostat housing and wash the crud growing in there out as well.
then chuck in loads of anti-freeze, pre-mixed stuff is best, else get it mixed to at least -10'C
or if your feeling brave -25'C if your going to europe soon.
