cooling system

Lots of talk about general/preventative maintaince etc. etc. I havent found much talk on the cooling system, I think it is one of the most overlooked areas in most vehicles. WHat do you folks generally do to keep your cooling systems up to PAR. I am not sure if anything has ever been done to mine other than what the dealer has done in the past based on the service history etc. Do you folks flush it annually. Who all is using redlines water wetter I have read good things about it?

I flush mine anually and when doing that clean out the rad fins with water or compressed air, check hoses and the thermostat. Its amazing how much bug and dirt get between the fins of the rad. Mines a diesel so I just use diesel specific anti freeze.
