Best place to get radiator flush?

If I had the time, would do it myself.

Thinking now is the time to try out Oil Can Henry's as they seem to have a good combo deal getting oil changed and radiator flushed at same time.

Anyone have any suggestions?

i always go to express lube, guys are amazing, quick, clean, professional, inexpensive, and honest. Wish they did more than just oil and lube though!

Went to Oil Can Henry's and had it flushed, after going to local radiator shop to have system pressure tested, in which the system was fine.

Truck seems happy tonight after the radiator flush, oil change with Castrol SynTech 10/30, and a full tank of 89 Octane. Might add a can of Sea Foam tomorrow as well.

Was 97 degrees here today, and post radiator flush it seems like the engine idles MUCH smoother than it used to, although the temp guage even when at highway speeds is higher than I have ever seen it go (almost midpoint of guage).

Is that normal now? Could fluid that was flushed out been so old that the temp never registered correctly?

All I know, is that the idle is very smooth now all the time.
