Flush the sytem with water several times to clear out all of the old antifreeze that is in the system. It is good to use distilled water especialy if your home water is hard. My wife works in a water quality lab so I use lab pure water.
I then filled the system with white vinegar which is a strong base to nuetralize any acid in the system. I then repeat the flush with water to remove all vinegar, and then fill with Engine Ice.
During each step I allowed the water to get warm and circulate well in the cooling system. This may seem like a lot of steps, but it really does not take long, and you will have a ultra clean system.
