First drain the cooling system by opening the drain in the lower part of the radiator and dispose of the used coolant properly. Then follow the uppper rad hose from the rad to the engine. At the engine there is a housing that houses the thermostat. Take it out and stick it back together temporarily. Take the upper rad hose loose at the radiator and stick the garden hose in the radiator. Start the engine and let it run until the water runs clear. Reinstall the thermostat making sure the spring goes toward the engine. Drain all of the water out of the radiator and fill the radiator up with coolant and you should end up with a 50/50 mix in the radiator.
You can take it to a shop. they will charge you maybe 20 or $30 but it flushes and refills your radiator. Get a flush kit from a part store and follow the simple directions.
The cooling system on this vehicle does not use a radiator cap on the radiator but on a remote tank. It may have a different (larger) cap on it than what you are used to seeing on the radiator.
how do i replace a water hose in 1993 pontiac grand am
A 1993 Pontiac Grand Am weighs approximately 2,828 lbs. The Pontiac Grand Am stopped production in the year 2005. The car was replaced with the Pontiac G6.
I would flush the cooling system with the heater on, thermistat removed, then rinse and put regular green coolant in it.
yes it will pontiacs are interchangable from the years 1993-1996
Does a 1993 Grand Am have air bags
Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine. Where it meets the engine there is the thermostat in the housing. Make sure you install the spring TOWARD the engine when replacing it. GoodluckJOe
Make sure the radiator is full of coolant; if it is, then change your engine's thermostat which is located at the lower end of the top radiator hose within the water outlet.
If your 1993 Pontiac Grand Am will not shift into part, the transmission is probably seized up. The first step is ensuring the transmission fluid is not too low.
The remote trunk release for a 1993 Grand Prix is in the gove box.
The camshaft sensor on a 1993 Pontiac Grand Am is located behind the rear bearing cap. It detects the position of the camshaft as it rotates and relays this information to the computer.
if you have a 3.3l v6, then you follow the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the block. It's around the throttle. The place where the hose connects can be removed, and the thermostat is in there.
Check the temperature sensor
Usually against the passenger firewall
i don't now
How do I get my door panel off
if its lifted but if not no
on the passenger side bottom corner of the radiator. kind of hard to reach
It must have a TIMING CHAIN because Gates ( they make timing belts etc. ) doesn't list a timing belt for the 3.3 liter V6 engine in a 1993 Pontiac Grand Am
Need to replace fuses on 1993 Grand Prix. Need to know ampere and color of the fuses.
The highest mileage was provided by the Pontiac Grand Am Regular and it gave 32 mpg on the highway and 21 in the city.
Yes It would if its 2.3L engine size. Also, fits Oldsmobile Achieva of same year. Thanks
Computer controlled and not adjustable
