  • Draining radiator

    I have a Mitsubishi Raider (it's really a Dodge Dakota) with a 3.7. I flush the radiator at 100K. Now it's going 200k, open the drain petcock , and with a full radiator, all I get is a small drip.

    I'm thinking the bottom of the radiator is clogged up. However it does not overheat.

    I'll flush it and drain it best I can and put new fluid.

    Any ideas?

    Run a piece of wire into the opened petcok as I'm guessing it is just blockage of scumotes there.
