The top line is always the return line, The cooler has to fill from the bottom or the fluid would get airated.

Where are the transmission cooler lines for a neon?

The transmission cooler lines are located coming from the radiator on the bottom. One is for the sending and the other for return. The lines are high pressure, just as your radiator hoses are when the car is running. The lines go from the radiator to the top of the transmission.

Connected to the bottom of the radiator you will see 2 lines. One is the inlet and one is the outlet. The cooler line is the return (outlet) line.

Does anyone have a schematic of a 2001 Chevy Venture Radiator showing transmission line return and inlet connection?

I don't have a schematic for the radiator, but I believe the IN is the bottom hose on the radiator, and the OUT is the top.It really shouldn't matter because it is just a loop through the radiator.Take Care,Greg

How do I identify the Supply and Return lines on a 3.5L Oldsmobile Intrigue transmission?

Pressure and return lines that goto radiator and or transmission cooler to keep the ATF chilled off.

How does trans fluid get into radiator?

You will notice two lines going to your radiator from the transmission. One is a service line and one is a return line. The radiator has a transmission cooler built into it. If you have trans fluid in the radiator chances are the trans cooler is leaking. A little trans fluid in the radiator will not affect engine cooling BUT as soon as the pressure drops in that transmission you may very well have radiator coolant sucked into the tranmission and that will ruin a transmission in a hurry. You need to get this checked out as soon as possible.

What is the hose that goes from the overflow to the bottom of the rad on a 2002 windstar?

The hose that goes from the overflow to the bottom of the radiator on a 2002 Windstar is the bypass hose. It allows coolant from the overflow to return to the radiator as it cools.

There are 2 lines. The return line is the line that is the the coolest after running the car. Usually the top line.

Yes, pressure and return cooler lines.

It should not matter as one is pressure and the other is return from the transmission oil cooler.

You want to install a transmission cooler on a 2000 gmc sonoma v6 automatic and want to know which trans line is the in and which is the out at the radiator?

Look in the yellow pages under "Transmission Parts". Go to them and buy the proper cooler. They will show you the proper way to install the cooler. Do NOT use an auto parts store. (The top line is from the trans. to the rad., the bottom line is the return. Fluid flows downward in the radiator.)

Engine runs for 15-20 minutes top radiator hose hot bottom cool?

I know that the top radiator hose on my 4.0 liter OHV gets hot when the engine thermostat opens allowing the engine coolant to flow through the radiator and the bottom return hose connects the radiator to the water pump should be cooler - sounds normal to me but I'm not a mechanic / technician

that is the transmission return cooler line

Why is top radiator hose hot and the bottom hose cold in 1989 Toyota pickup?

Engines return hot coolant to the radiator through top hose, and cooled coolant goes back to the engine through the bottom hose, so a difference in temperature between the two would not be unusual. Assuming you have allowed the engine to come up to temperature and the bottom hose is stone cold, either the radiator or bottom hose is blocked, the water pump has failed or there is an air lock. A seized viscous coupling on a cooling fan or a permanently running electric fan can also make the radiator over-cool, but the bottom hose would feel slightly cooler than the top hose, not cold.

what line is the return line for the water to radiator?

The top hose.

Why does the coolant fill up the reservoir and not return back to the radiator leaving the radiator bone dry on a 93 Honda Civic DX?

Why does the radiator fill up the reservoir

On a 1992 Isuzu pickup fuel pump what one is the in and what one is out and what one is the return?

bottom left is the inlet, bottom right is the return, top goes to the engine, bottom is the breather

Why does the upper radiator hose have no pressure?

Under normal circumstances it will have some pressure just less than the bottom hose. The bottom hose is directly pressurized by the water pump while the upper hose acts as a return hose to keep the water flowing through the engine block. If there is no pressure you could be low on radiator fluid (water/anti freeze mixed) or have a thermostat stuck open.

How do you change radiator and fan motor and fan on 1992 dodge stealth es?

I assume this readiator is in a non-turbo car. The fan units are attached to the radiator itself. Once you remove the whole radiator fans and all it will be much easier to work on. The radiator is held in place by two clamps at either top side of the unit. Remove feed and return hoses, and unplug two temp sensors at bottom of radiator. Remove trans cooler lines (if auto trans). The fan units are secured to the radiator by four screws.

What is the layout for radiator hoses on a 1990 Chevy Astro van?

one large hose from bottom of radiator to side of water pump. other large hose from thermostat housing to top of radiator. one heater hose from water pump to heater core, I think this one has a Y in it if there is a rear heater other heater hose from heater core to somewhere on top the engine. If there is a rear heater, its return hose goes to a fitting on the radiator.
