so after i took my car to the shop they said i have a block in my radiator,which may be true but when adding antifreeze this afternoon i ran the car to get all the air out,and the line that sends anitfreeze back into the antifreeze resevior is not sending the antifreeze so i believe it had clogged from debris considering it clogged after i flushed the system.
so what is the best method for removing the debris,would a flush eat it away or is there a machine blaster type of deal that shops use??
due to this my cooling system is building up alot of pressure because the antifreeze in the resevoir is not circulating,the sho said it would cost 150+ so i figured i would give it a shot on my own any help is appreciated
If youre talking about the overflow resvoir. Fluid doesn't always go into it. It sure as hell doesnt in my DC2. and i have zero cooling problem. and if it is that resvoir just pull the hose off and check it
- Booster officer confirms main engine cut-off and we're standing by for tank separation.
- Tank separation confirmed! Atlantis is in its preliminary orbit.
yes its pressurized,i believe there are two or three hoses,one which runs as a main cooliant line,one which i think runs to the heater core/fire wall,and then the small one which im guessing acts as a cooliant return line
what kind of VW? very good possiblity the impeller on the water pump is cracked off causing no circulation. being there is alot of crap in the system, that is always a good sign of neglect/poor maint. meaning you will have to take every hose off, flush both directions, and clean the shit out of it first, then check to verify flow. very likely its got a sheared impeller, but it will need a new stat also.
