HI there,

you should drop off the lower radiator hose and remove the thermostat, all so remove the heater hose and flush all the coolant out until it runs clear, (make e sure the heater is on) replace the thermostat and the radiator pressure cap if its a few years old, replace coolant and bleed system, run up to temp check the heater is hot and that there are no leaks in the system.
