the overflow bottle has a little indentation on it that can be hooked on the secondary hood latch hook (after removing a few fasteners) this puts it just high enough to fill the engine and allow air to escape there is a bleeder on the system that only the dealer knew about on mine. even an experienced mechanic didn't know about it.

You don't fix it you replace it. Drain the radiator, replace the hose, and the thermostat, flush the system, install a 50/50 mixture of antifreeze and water, bleed the system.

It could be caused by a defective pressure cap on the radiator cooling system.

thermostat or air in clling system replace thermostat and bleed the system

The heater core has no overflow hose. Cooling system is a closed loop system and the only overflow hose is the one going from the radiator cap to the reservoir. A thermostat that is stuck closed will cause the engine to overheat. Drain and flush the radiator, replace the thermostat, install a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water, bleed air from the system. You may also need to replace the radiator cap. Be sure and replace these parts with OEM parts.The heater core has no overflow hose.

The hose is soft and mushy inside. Replace the hose. Possible clogged radiator. Replace the hose first. You also might have a clogged radiator core. Have a reputable radiator shop check and flush your cooling system.

easiest way to disconnect is to remove airbag fuse from vehicle. why you need to disconnect to remove a radiator is beyond me, the radiator has nothing to do with the airbags

Remove first the radiator mount and hood latch mechanism. Drain cooling system by placing a pan under radiator and allowing it to drip until empty. Remove radiator caps, replace radiator and return radiator mount and hood latch mechanism refill your cooling system with a premium grade coolant.

No, just replace the radiator. The other one (in the front) is the condenser for the a/c system.

1) remove radiator cap2) Fill radiator with coolant.3) replace radiator cap4) remove reservior cap5) fill to "fill cold" line6) replace reservior capIf your system not very low or empty you can omit 1-3.

No PCV valve on this engine. Has "PCV system". Hose from valve cover to throttle body. Nothing to replace.

If this radiator has a plastic top, I would suggest you purchase a new radiator. If it is metal, then remove the radiator and have it repaired and flushed, at a radiator shop. This is a good time to service your cooling system. Replace the thermostat and flush the engine out. Check all radiator hoses including the heater hoses, and replace if necessary. Reinstall a 50/50 mix of the appropriate coolant. Don't forget to bleed the air out of the system after reinstalling everything.

You can drain the coolant from the radiator drain plug and just refill it or you can flush out the complete system including the radiator, heater core, heater hoses, block and replace the thermostat and the refill it back up...........

User Avatar

If you mean "purge" the air out of the cooling system, then loosen the top radiator hose at the radiator. Pour coolant mixture into the hose until most of the air is purged and replace.

The radiator is part if the cooling system.

The transmission cooler is built into the radiator, and the tubes on the cooler are leaking Trans. fluid into the engine coolant. Need to replace radiator.

User Avatar

You need to replace the thermostat and flush the system of crud.

User Avatar

Don't drive it! Have it towed to a garage that can flush the system, replace the radiator and hope that the transmission is not damaged.

User Avatar

Depends on where in the cooling system the leak is. Some choices are: -Busted hose Find and replace house -Bad radiator Replace radiator -Leaking thermostat housing Replace thermostat housing and gasket -Failing water pump Replace water pump. While doing this, replace timing belt, tensioner, and idlers, as this is quick task, replace it all while you are in there.

Before replacing the radiator hose on a 1996 Honda Civic drain the coolant system. Once drained remove any clamps holding the hose in place and pull the unit off. Replace with new hoses.

Disconnect the hoses connected to the radiator and drain the system. (The water will come out by itself :) ) Then you just take the old radiator out and put the new one in. Connect the hoses, fill the system up with water (you might want to add some antifreeze) and don't forget to air the system. There is a little screw on the radiator that you have to loosen, and when water is coming out from the screw, you tighten it again. Good luck!

If there are no schrader valves to bleed the system, remove the radiator cap, make sure the radiator is full of coolant, turn the heater controls to HOT, start the engine, watch for air bubbles escaping, keep the radiator full, and when you see no more air bubbles escaping, replace the cap. The system is now bled.

This is a good time to service the system. If one hose is bad, replace both the upper and lower unless you have already replaced the lower. Also check the heater hoses carefully and replace if in doubt. Drain the radiator and remove and replace the thermostat. Fill it up with a 50/50 mixture of the proper anti-freeze and distilled water. Bleed all air from the system.

No the chassis of the 1993 Toyota Celica will have to be modified to fit it. The transmission required also uses a 4WD system which will have to be custom made for the Celica.

The radiator should be analyzed as an open system since mass is crossing the boundaries of the system.
