So my radiator in my 71 cutlass supreme has A LOT of calcium deposits. Id like to keep the original radiator and not buy an aftermarket one, so I wanted to know if anyone knows of a SAFE method to clean out the deposits?
I read ppl used vinegar,but then read that using vinegard (due to the acid) would cause heavy rusting to occur.
Someone then suggested after using vinegar to flush the system out w/a mixture of water&baking soda to neutralize the radiators metals to prevent the rusting issue.
Anyone try this?????
I also read ppl using limesclae cleaner..
Anyone here use either of the above methods w/successful results?
Or anyone have other safe cleaning alternatives?
By the way,I was told rodding causes leaks&the guy didn't want to take the chance to rod my radiator due to its age hence why I'm asking for othe solutions
