Anyone have a safe, effective method for cleaning out a radiator while its still in the vehicle?

Engine temperature running a bit warm and I'd like to clean out just the radiator and then just the heater core without running anything through the engine.

Thank you.

If you disconnect both hoses, the radiator isnt connected to the motor any more. You can flush away. Same with the heater core. If you remove the hoses, nothing will get back into the motor.

You will need to refill and bleed the system afterwards
