I usually pull one end of the lower hose off the radiator and allow the system to drain then, reattach and fill with antifreeze. Start car and let it idle for 30 minutes, (keeping the radiator cap off to bleed the air out) and top off the coolant level.

AnswerHave you checked the fluids (e.g. oil, coolant, transmission fluid)? When the car is working harder--as in driving faster-- it generates more heat. The car sheds heat through its fluids. If the fluids are full then it sounds like the coolant is restructed. Take it to a radiator shop.

What is the proper way to change a radiator that has a transmission cooler?

If you can unbolt the cooler then unbolt it whatever way is easiest. Then remove the radiator. If it is part of the radiator itself then drain the radiator first completely and then disconnect the tranny lines and try to plug them if possible or put then draining into a container. Dont want to mix the fluids. Then remove the radiator. That should be it. That is way that I have done it before.

How do you change the radiator on a 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora?

Unbolt and remove the top cover, or metal shroud. This will give you access to the radiator. Remove the rad. hoses and trans. lines. Unplug and/or remove the two fans ( I left them on the radiator when I removed the radiator) then unbolt the radiator and lift out of the car. It will be somewhat heavy if you do not have the fluids drained from it. I assume you need to get the tanks repaired due to leaking.
