Re: how to flush the cooling sysem in a 96' taurus
Basically you should have two big, black hoses going to your radiator. One is on the top and the other is usually on the opposite corner (if one is on drivers side of car, top of radiator, the other should be on the passenger side of the car at the bottom of the radiator). Each will be held on w/ a spring clamp that you will have to squeeze with pliers to get off or possibly undo with a screwdriver. You want to remove the hose at the bottom of the radiator and the coolant will just flow out so have a bucket ready. Also, if you're uncomfortable doing that, there's usually a small drain plug somewhere that you can unscrew and drain it that way. It won't drain as quickly but it'll get you the same end result.
