Hi maklowery,

I do not know what is clogging the system so it would require the person handling the job to try to find a way to get it done.

One of the causes of cooling system being clogged by unknown substances comes from the coolants. Quite a lot of coolant in the market cannnot be mixed with different brands or types. They would cause checmical reactions to clog up the system. If that is the case, the engine side might be possible to clean up, but for the radiator, high possibility it has to be replaced.

Was this
