Changing a radiator in a 1997 Pontiac Grand Am can be a difficult task. To remove the radiator, all of the radiator hoses will need to be disconnected from the radiator. The transmission lines will also need to be removed. After all of the hoses are disconnected, remove all of the clips that are holding the radiator in place. Lift the radiator up and place with a new one. All the hoses and clips will need to be put back in place with the new radiator.

i own a 2003 dodge durango slt plus. i have experienced the small emissions leak. first check the emissions vacuum hoses under the hood. when the hoses get old they crack and create a vacuum leak. be very careful checking the hoses, sometimes they crack the length of the hose which is hard to see at times. my leak was under the vehicle. i would guess that is most likely where yours is. underneath the vehicle on the drivers side towards the back you will see a black rectangular box with hoses coming out of it. check those hoses. like i said that was where my leak was and it seems to pop up every few yrs.
