Is heater core failure inevitable? 900 1994

When flushing the heater core with a garden hose, do not use full pressure. A house water faucet can be 65 PSI or higher, way over what the heater core and the rest of the cooling system was designed for, like 13 PSI.

Along those lines, the lower PSI (black) coolant cap is easier on the heater core and other cooling system components.
