You will not damage the engine but you can damage the radiator if you use any high pressure. If you only flush and apply no pressure you will do no damage. Use a chemical flush and a water hose and you will be safe.

What is proper fan sucking air through radiator to engine or blowing from engine to the radiator?

Actually, both are used. However, it is more common to pull air through the radiator towards the engine. This draws cooler outside air through the radiator. Pushing air from the engine towards the radiator means that you are pulling hot air from around the engine towards the radiator.

What does the radiator in a car do?

As coolant cycles through the engine, it absorbs heat from the engine, after which, it continues through the cooling system back to the radiator. As the coolant passes through the radiator, the heat is exchanged to the ambient air by way of airflow through the radiator fins (this is why it's important not to bend the radiator fins).

Engine hot cooling not hot?

Engine is Hot, Coolant is not HOThere engine is hot means above the engine operating temperature, Coolant is not hot means coolant in the radiator is not hot and the coolant is below or withing the operating temperature.i think there is no water blow out from the radiator cap if you have this problem then the following will not apply to your case.* water is not circulating through the radiator, either half of the pumped water is circulating through the radiator or another half circulates through the engine block because of thermostat. so please check the engine thermostat for proper function.

What is the purpose of the radiator?

A car's radiator is used to help keep the engine cool. During operation, an engine's moving parts create friction, which produces heat. Coolant flows through the engine picking up that head and travels back to the radiator where it is cooled down by air flowing through the radiator coils. The cool coolant then travels back through the engine completing the cycle over and over.
