    Possible sediment lodged in the drain petcock? That happened on my '77 pickup with the 20R with the iron block. Is there any part of the cooling system on the new trucks that can rust anymore?

    any vehicle i ever had i always remove the bottom radiator hose at the radiator to dump the coolant. i then just push it back on and fill with water run for 3 minutes and pull off again, repeat about 4 times then tighten it back up and add coolant.
