you seriously dont get it? just think of flushing a toilet, lol...

when u flush ur cooling system, its when u drain all the fluid out and put new fluid in. and this is not just for cooling

excellent - i thought of flushing like running water through it to clean it somehow...

also - where is the engine temp sensor (one that reads on the cluster)

nah - i already replaced that (thermostat)

i was wondering about the sensor that goes to the readout on the cluster

it's all good though - even though i didn't let the engine cool off enough. Ah, the wonders of a 300 degree coolant shower... I have no arm hair now
