Before changing the radiator on a 2001 Pontiac Montana the coolant must first be drained. After the drain remove the radiator mounts, fans, and hoses. Pull the radiator upwards.

There is only one fuel pump fuse on a 2001 Pontiac Montana. It can be found in the engine compartment near the firewall at the rear of the compartment.

find your heater hoses and follow them. the flush is usually in an easily accessible location. It is very possible there is not a radiator flush valve. you may need to install one.

You can flush the block thru the line to the heater core at the firewall. This will flush the heater core also.

There is a drain valve at the bottom of the radiator and you will have to remove the drain bolt in the engine block.

The reason why it might not start might be because of the crank sensor.

Buy a radiator flush kit and radiator flush additive from your local auto parts store. Follow the package instructions. You can also buy a Haynes or Chilton's repair manual. For the 1984-2001 XJ Cherokee it is highly recommend that you not use the radiator drain valve as it is plastic and rather fragile. Removing the lower radiator hose is faster and easier for draining the cooling system.

The coolant capacity of a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am is 13 quarts. This includes the coolant stored in the engine and the radiator.

You install the refridgerant in the valve that has a blue cap with an L on it that is on the silver line between the radiator and the engine. Pop on your canister of 134a and fill er up. Cheers

Your thermostat could be malfunctioning - replace it. Your radiator could becoming plugged - flush it.

Never flush a radiator. When flusing the radiator theres no way to be 100% sure that you got everything out, and flushing a radiator will only losen things up that can get into the engine, clogging it up causing you BIG problems... Its okay to drain and refill the radiator, but never flush one. All of those deposits that's getting lose, some will come out but what doesnt will find its way into your engine, causing you a huge headache.
