I flushed mine last weekend with 2 gallons of distilled water, the engine running and the water pump bleed screw open. Engine was fully hot and I had a large pan underneath to catch the original fluid. There was absolutely zero sand or crap in my system, I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. I replaced the stock coolant with straight Engine Ice and burped the system properly. Going to install a colder thermostat next.
