Coolant Reservoir - Flushing
I just bought a 2000 Ranger and the coolant reservoir needs a good cleaning/flushing. I drained it, but was wondering if I could bypass taking it completely out of the truck to clean before I replace the coolant. The manual suggests taking it out but I figured I could just flush with a hose the same as I would with the radiator.
Does anyone know why I shouldn't do this? Of course, I would only be using water.
