Description of Revamp Your Cleaning Routine with OTC 6043 Blast-Vac Multipurpose Cleaning Gun

Perfectly suited for quick and efficient cooling system flushing. Simply attach it to a radiator or heater hoses and you’re in business. Also usable in washing engines and even shop floors. Just two simple connections - one to shop air, the other to a standard water spigot - creates a unique air/water vortex blast for powerful cleaning capabilities. The tool can also be used to vacuum by turning the venturi inside the gun in the opposite direction.

Great tool. 40 YEARS AGO

NOT NOW. I have no issue with the tool itself, but would like to point out that on the last model I worked on it was completely useless for backflushing the radiator. TODAY engine bays are just too narrow and crowded to get this tool where you need it. Are you really going to spend up to 2 hours removing the thermostat to flush the system? I'm sure this tool has its uses, but you really need to think about the cars you're going to use it on to see if it's possible.

it is an ideal agent for flushing car cooling systems

In 2 versions it is an ideal agent for flushing car cooling systems. at HomeDepot. Preferably with an automatic shut-off valve so that water does not splash everywhere in the event of an accidental shut-off. Second, a regulator must be attached to the air intake. Putting factory air pressure (90psi) into the cooling system is going to break something. I bought a cheap one from Harbor Freight and attached quick disconnects to it so I can use it with other tools as well. With those two things…

  • Ideal for outdoor activities
  • Appearance

Mine came as in the photo Original OEM branded product. It doesn't come with an air connector, so be prepared to pull one out or buy one. The smallest end of the nozzle was too big to fit into my Impala SS 96's heater core hoses, I was disappointed to see that. The quick connect hose fitting has a bit of a leak as others have mentioned, but it's really minor and not a problem. Despite all these complaints, I was very impressed with the functionality of this device. Before using the airflow…

I received a genuine OTC product

Many other reviews say a counterfeit, non-OTC product was delivered. For this reason I doubted the purchase. However, I received a legitimate OTC. It works well. clearly not as cool and high tech as the Gates purge gun with pulse cooling system. It seems to work by simply pouring water out of the nozzle and forcing it vigorously with air, I didn't really see the advertised "vortex" effect. It appears to be made entirely of plastic, so I'm not sure how long it will actually last, but it did the…

  • Easy to read control panel
  • Definitely bad product

I had no heat from my car's radiator. After using this tool to flush the radiator and engine, it's now hot inside. Before moving on to this tool, I considered replacing the core ($1300 job) as I had once professionally flushed the coolant at a repair shop and VW dealership, but after each flush it stayed warm and became days never hot again Then I read about this tool on the PassatWorld blogs and decided to give it a try and now I'm thankful I did. This tool removed a lot of dirt from the…

Worked great, now warm.

I have a 4 year old Ram 3500 Cummins Diesel with 160,000 miles on it. The heat in the cabin is no longer hot, this truck will melt you in minutes. But this winter the heat was lukewarm at best. I checked the mixing doors, changed the thermostat although I didn't think it was a problem, it was cheap enough and 160k is about the time. We had a water pump recall and mistook it for a new pump that won't hurt. Last resort before completely disassembling the dashboard, including unloading the air…

Blow it up Best in Tools & Equipment

I drive a 2000 Jeep XJ Cherokee. Anyone familiar with them will tell you that they have cooling problems which if not addressed will destroy the cylinder head and eventually the engine. Mine was starting to get warm (the sensor lied to me) so the remedies were fine. coolant was. ok, it didn't look like coolant anymore. In fact, I saw a lot of rust-colored mush. If that wasn't a problem, then definitely. Getting rid of porridge can be done with the help of chemicals. It may not be. I was…

  • good stuff
  • Fits

This tool saved me a lot of money and time. I used it at 50psi for an hour on just a heater core to free it. I connected a tool to the heater core outlet to force water out of the inlet because I've read that it's easier to flush the heater core by reversing the flow direction. I gave the tool 3 stars because of the quality of the tool, but if I had to do it again I would definitely do it. The following review is way too long, but it addresses the issues I had and why I did it the way I did. If
