Flush the cooling system, as during the period of operation on its walls may accumulate a lot of deposits. For washing, you can pour distilled water by adding specific additives that can break down deposits. In this case the additive should be selected so that they do injury to the material from which made the radiator. To thoroughly clean the radiator, use the washer "Karcher".
