It all depends on what kind of car you have. Most of them you have to press down very hard to be able to turn counterclockwise and remove.
Joe, I have a 1996 Chevy Blazer. Would you know how to do it on it?
The radiator does not have a cap, instead, the coolant system reservoir is also pressurized and the pressure cap is on the reservoir.
The 2000 Saturn does not have a distributor. Instead it uses a "coil pack" system.
No that's a clogged radiator issue. However if the engine over heats to much, the head will warp and you'll need a new one. Replace your radiator, Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor, and thermostat.
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.
The radiator drain plug on a Chrysler Sebring is located on the bottom, left side of the radiator. It allows for coolant to be quickly drain from the system.
no, it's on the reservoir. Yes, the radiator "system" has a pressure-release cap located on the plastic coolant fill bottle. This bottle is an active part of the cooling system, and is where you add coolant to the 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.
The radiator drain plug on a 1992 Ford Thunderbird is located on the bottom, left side of the radiator. It allows for the cooling system to be quickly drained during maintenance.
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.
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...........
You don't. The only place you pour coolant into this car is into the reservoir, and the piping to the radiator will be sealed by radiator sealant as it's a pretty small diameter tubing - much of the coolant system on this car is pretty small as the engine is small. Smaller cars are a lot less tolerant of these types of fixes, you'll be lucky if you don't mess up your water pump, radiator, hoses, etc. If it were me, I'd replace the radiator and skip a possibly far more expensive repair.
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.
you did'nt get enough antifreeze in the system ther is probably air in it
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.
You need to replace the thermostat and flush the system of crud.
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.
Saturn is the sixth planet of the Solar System.
