  1. Dear Friend, Thank you so much for the help and prompt answer! Well I'll try this system as well, Will remove the thermostat from the thermostat housing, then put my pump outlet on the rubber hose that was connected to the thermostat housing and on the thermostat housing will install a hose that will drain this water in a bucket ( as a return ) Does that sound ok?! Sorry to be redundant, I'm not a mechanical and I want to be extra careful when doing this Thanks again and have a great week end
  2. Dear Friend My car suffered from intermix and I notice that you mention that in this situation you put an external pump system to force water or water/cleaner mixtures through the system My questions are: 1-) Where do you install this pump? 2-) May I use a bilge pump from a boat ( a rule type of pump with 1500 gph for example ) ? 3-) Is there on magic place where I install this pump and flush the whole system, or I have to go in parts? Like disconnect the hose from the thermostat nad put the pump on the hose and see the water being expelled from the metal tube OR the other way around ( pump IN on the Tube and Water OUT on the hose) Then there is that smaller hose that goes in the pump housing ?! If I'm not mistaken?! should I flush that part of the system separated as well? There is also the heater core on the passenger side, can I flush that part of the system with the pump? Thanks Ricardo
