It's the gadget that you patch into your coolant line, then hook up to a garden hose and back-flush the cooling system.

Hi David,

I personally have never use that gadget but I believe I have seen something like that at the hosiptal. :eek :D

Geez - what hospital are you going to...?!?

I have used the Prestone kit. It works in that it does allow you to connect a garden hose to somewhat forcefully flush out the cooling system.

Keep in mind that no home remedies/chemicals are going to be as effective as the stuff a radiator shop can/will use. For routine maintenance (flushing the cooling system every 1 - 2 years) that kit will work OK. I doubt it'd help much for a badly neglected cooling system.
