radiator flush question

I want to flush the radiator in my 97 Ranger w/ 4cyl engine
but I've never done that before.How can I be sure I don't
leave any air pockets inside after I'm done?
TIA
Tom
Seattle

Refill the radiator with the engine running and the heater control on full hot,
to avoid air in the system. Also flush & fill the coolant recovery tank with
50/50 mix.

Re: radiator flush question

You may also want to have the front of the vehicle up on ramps or jackstands
so air bubbles can migrate towards the upper radiator hose and radiator cap.

Also make sure the overflow tank is filled and the overflow tube to it is
clear
