Just disconnect the hoses from the radiator and direct them into a container capable of holding about 14 quarts. Start the engine and let it run until no more fluid comes out. Hook the hoses back up and fill the trans making sure not to overfil it. You don't get the filter changed this way which I think is important to do and the most of the time it is MESSY.

How do you remove the oil line from the radiator on a Jeep Grand Cherokee?

OIL LINE? there is no oil line connected to the radiator. There are transmission fluid lines attached to the radiator.... To disconnect these, get some PB Blaster spray, spray liberally around nuts attaching lines to radiator, wait 10 minutes. Get "FLARE NUT WRENCH" of proper size, and loosen and remove. Make sure you have something to catch fluid in underneath where you are working.Good Luck... November 2010 - please note: my 2001 GC Limited has an oil driven cooling fan, instead of traditional 12 volt motor driven fan. The power steering pump's "oil" pressure drives several systems including this fan. Indeed, this "oil" is not conneted to the radiator. I plan to unhook the fan system and tie it back "intact" so I can lift the radiator out today.

How can you tell if your 1996 Mazda 626 has a transmission oil cooler theres 2 plastic fans in front of the radiatorand what appears to be a smaller radiator on the grill sidemaybe a tran cooler?

the smaller "radiator in the front of the other one" is actually part of your cars air conditioning system. if you are standing in front of your vehicle and are looking into the engine bay, on the passenger side of the radiator will be two metal fittings/tubbing that lead to rubber hoses near the bottom of the "two fans" then these hoses go into the transmission. if anywhere these hoses instead go into a ( say 6 inch by 9 inch "radiator looking contraption" that would be the cooler) if not. then the transmission lines are stock.

In a 93 Olds Silhouette what would cause there to be oil in the water but no water in the oil?

if this vehicle is automatic,the most likely cause would be the transmission fluid cooler. it is a tank inside the radiator that cools the transmission fluid. if by any reason the tank leaks it would contaminate your water/coolant/antifreeze. answer a cracked head will allow oil into water jacket in head, going from there thru to radiator if it was a bad head gasket, u would have water in oil instead

Many things,, Bad radiator cap weak not holding pressure, Air Dam, plastic air scoop just below the bumper underneath the front of the car, if it is damaged or bent straight down or back instead of forward it will not scoop the air up into the radiator properly. Fans not coming on or coming on too late which can be caused by fan relays, temperature sensors etc. These are just a few possibilities

There is a little plug that takes a philips screwdriver on the very bottom (underneath) on the right side of your radiator if your looking at the car. unscrew and it will drain you coolant, Or if your is stripped like mine..... just take the big hose off towards the bottom in the back and replace. usually take about 3 gallons to refill.
