With the weather getting warm I'd run the flush for a while. Maybe even drain and refill with flush after a few hundred miles. Just follow the direction. You have to run the flush, run straight water, then run coolant/water mix. Just make sure to use purified water.
Alright that sounds alot easier then my idea of taking out the heatercore hoses and back flushing the system

well while you are at the drain process disconnect the hoses that run to your heater core and get a fitting for your hose that will fit in there. Jam it in the hoses and back flush that way. I'm sure you'll see some gunk come running out. might as well do that each time you have the system drained.

Sentra is Gone!

I didn't notice your procedure list include opening up the bleeder screw above the thermostat to let the air out.
