Probably the way to get most (if not all) of the plastic out of the head and block would be to remove the water pump, hook up a garden hose to T-stat housing where the upper radiator hose connects and turn it on full blast. That should back flush all the crap out.

Complete cooling system overhaul in a convenient kit! Includes the following components:

Radiator - Nissens
Radiator Expansion Tank
Upper Radiator Hose
Lower Radiator Hose
Coolant Level Sending Unit
Expansion Tank Bleeder Screw
Water Pump & Gasket - With Upgraded Metal Impeller - Meyle
Thermostat & Gaskets - Wahler
Coolant Temperature Sensor

I cant find anything on the Transmission check valve though.

Thanks for your response.
Check the part number for transmission valve from realoem. You will most likely break it
