If your engine has been damaged it may be worthwhile to purchase a remanufactured engine. A 1986 Buick Riviera currently has 102,000 on a remanufactured engine(ReCon).
You drain coolant from the radiator. but according to the book ther are two plugs on the engine block that need to drain the coolant from.
Engine coolant expands when heated. Heated coolant needs a reservoir to come and go as needed.
Coolant reservoir, or directly in the radiator. If you are having to add much coolant, you need to find out why. Serious engine damage can occur if it is leaking inside the engine.
The thermostat is generally found in the engine where the coolant exits the engine block before it gets to the radiator. And yes, a thermostat is necessary for todays engines.
You need to check coolant temperature sensor and the water pump.
You still need to flush the engine block and heater core.
you need a new radiator cap
If your coolant is brown, this means it has LOTS of rust in it. If this is the case, then you need to flush your cooling system and refill it with fresh coolant. Be sure to drain your engine block as well as your radiator, as MANY people neglect to do this. Without draining your engine block, you are basically just changing half your coolant.
the mitsibushi fto engine holds 6.5 litres of coolent.
We are gonna need to know which drain plug you are looking for, radiator coolant, engine block coolant, rear differential oil, front differential oil, engine oil,
Does it have a oil cooler on the engine ?? If it does then oil runs through tubes that are inside of the radiator to cool the oil, and the tubes are leaking oil into the engine coolant. REPLACE RADIATOR. Really need to know what you are working on. Engine size and year. It could verywell be something else. Let us know NEUTZ.
If the engine is cold... it could mean that the radiator cap is too weak to hold and you need to get a new one. If the engine is HOT... it could mean that you have overheated it and you need to add water after the engine has cooled a bit, to prevent getting burned, be careful and use a towel to remove the cap to add coolant.
You need to bleed the coolant system--follow the upper left radiator hose to the engine block, get a 12mm wrench, with the car running, unscrew the nut with a hole on top and loosen it a half turn till coolant starts seeping out. Retighten nut. With the car turned off and engine cooled down, check coolant level in radiator and overflow tank.
There are 2 reasons that I've heard of that may cause a car to overheat: 1. You need a new thermostat--the engine coolant is not getting into the engine 2. You need to replace the head gasket on the engine--this can be thousands of dollars, so maybe have the thermostat checked out first. If the radiator only comes on when the A/C is turned on, the Radiator coolant switch may need changing
yes in a way. block heaters heat the coolant in the block there for warming the block up. coolant heaters heat the coolant out side the engine like in the hoses and radiater. and when the coolant gets hot enough it opens the thermosate and starts flowing through the engine..The coolant heater should be hooked into the engine so that it heats only the engine and the heater core. If the coolant heater is trying to heat the radiator then it will not work very well to heat the engine, you would need a lot of BTUs to heat the radiator as it will shed all that heat to the air that is surrounding 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.
No need. Just drain the radiator and after adding the coolant just run the engine and add till full. I recommend getting non diluted coolant for the simple fact that it costs the same as the diluted mixture, so essentially your getting twice as much.
you might need to check the water in the batter, engine coolant, radiator, oil.
Yes, a car needs a radiator to run because it stores the coolant for the engine and dispenses it when needed. So, if it didn't have one the car would overheat and not be able to move :)
Saturn's did not have a place on the radiator to fill the coolant; you'll need to look for the coolant reservoir, which was typically somewhere in front of the passenger. Note the fill level marks on the side of the reservoir; do not exceed the appropriate mark. (one for when the engine is hot, the other for when the engine is cool.) and do not open the reservoir when the engine is hot.
There are two separate sensors that play here. the "coolant temperature sensor" and "coolant LEVEL sensor". I suggest confirming which of these was replaced, as it is very common for them to be confused. likely you will find the coolant sensor that was replaced was the one on the engine (temperature); The LEVEL sensor is mounted either in the coolant resivoir or in the radiator. Probably just need the proper sensor replaced.
how can you tell if you need a radiator in a 99 cadillac northstar engine
Check your transmission fluid, The cooler that runs through the radiator may be leaking into the cooling system. If so, the radiator will need to be replaced, and possible transmission will need to be flushed as well. Good Luck!
coolant/anti-freezeYES, BUT ALL ANTI-FREEZE IS NOT THE SAME YOU NEED TO CHECK YOUR OWNERS MANUAL TO SEE WHICH TYPE YOU NEED. The words are sometimes used interchangeably. However, if you live in an equatorial country, your coolant is more likely to be water. I.E., Engine coolant is any liquid that cools the engine by dissipating the coolant temperature through the engine's radiator.
Does it have 2 lines coming from the top of the oil filter, and going to the radiator. If so that is the oil cooler. You need to replace the RADIATOR Those 2 lines go into the radiator so it can cool the oil, and the tubes are leaking oil into the coolant.
