In most cases the lower radiator hose feeds the water pump. The upper radiator hose feeds the radiator.


When your radiator fails in a car, your car will overheat. Sometimes it will explode with steam. Usually you lose your radiator coolant. Often you will have to replace your radiator.


goes from the top of the radiator to the engine block, joins usually at the thermostat


The inlet to the radiator. Hot water from the engine goes in to be cooled.


Engine could overheat, can bust your radiator hoses. If ran for long while overheated you could blow the engine.



The best way to do this is to visit a mechanic. There is a lot that goes on with the radiator and it can be a mess if you do it wrong.


follow the upper radiator hose where it goes into the top of the motor and it will be right there.

check the coolant level in the radiator


It comes out of the bottom drivers side of the radiator and goes to the water pump.


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.


If the reservoir has a hose that travels to the top of the radiator, then it is filled with engine coolant. If the hose is not connected to the radiator, then it is most likely a windshield washer bottle.


The radiator cools the water which then goes to your engine to cool it off, as cool water enters your engine hot water from the engine enters your radiator


(Oil floats) mostly mixes with the water forming emulsion which clogs the radiator.


coolant in engine enters radiator at the bottom, goes up thru radiator and exits radiator at top. i would think your radiator is clogged up try a good,(expensive) radiator flush to see it that fixes proble,


It hooks to the top of the radiator just under the cap. If it does not have a cap it still goes to radiator.


ON THE BLOCK. FOLLOW THE TOP RADIATOR HOSE, GOES FROM THE RADIATOR TO THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING. TWO BOLTS
