Running it while leaking can cause it to overheat repeatedly, which can cause thermostat damage , along with other problems.
It has not had time to go through the whole radiator
First, you must find out WHERE it's leaking. If it's a radiator hose or heater hose, replace the hose. If it's a water pump leak, replace the water pump. If it's a leaking radiator, take it to a radiator shop and have the radiator replaced or repaired. If it's a freeze plug, head gasket or other leak, you'll need more serious repairs.
Yes, the 2001 ignition switch for a 2000 Chevrolet Tracker will fit just fine. Other years the switch fits are 1999 to 2004.
your local auto zone or other parts store should have somthing you put in your radiator to plug it but this is only temporary if the hole gets any more than somthing like a pinhole you will have to replace the radiator
My Manual says to get the info off the drivers side post. No other info .Sorry Regards HHH
Try to find out where it's coming from. Often coolant will leak down the front of the water pump, under the pulley. Even if you don't see the coolant, look for the mineral trace of the water. By the time you notice a leaky water pump it has usually been leaking for a while and has left a noticeable trail. If you don't notice coolant leaking there, check other places, freeze plugs, the sides of the radiator, radiator and heater hoses... Again, the coolant and water minerals typically leave a nice bright trace to tell you where it's leaking. If the radiator is leaking, don't try to fix it yourself and certainly don't put stop leak or any other chemicals in it. Either replace the radiator or take it to a radiator shop and have THEM repair it properly.
In a 2002 trailblazer it is located on the bottom of the radiator one the passenger side. Every other model year to my knowlege does not have drain plug.
R134a, just like any other vehicle for that model year.
It there on the passenger side of the radiator then there TRANSMISSION coolant lines and they hook to the transmission. If there on the other side then there OIL cooler lines for the engine.
Grey smoke can actually be one, of two things. A lean misfire condition, which will cause the engine to surge at cruising speeds, which would seem like a skip, or miss. The other would be if it were steam, like water leaking into the cylinder, and burning. You would have to be adding water to replace that is leaking into the cylinder, and it would hot, from time to time.
Weak solder joint when mfg.? Excessive water pressure due to: 1) Bad radiator cap 2) Plugged radiator 3) Thermostat not opening 4) By-pass hose crimped or plugged 5) Leaking head gasket(s) Possibly the radiator hose was weak. So in other words, a bad radiator hose.
The water outlet, also called a petcock is located near the lowest point in the cooling system and is used to drain coolant from the engine. The petcock typically has wings, which are designed for better grip when turning the valve. If coolant is leaking from this point, it may be the petcock is partially opened and might need only to be closed completely to stop the leaking. The petcock is press-fitted into the bottom of the radiator. A leak around the petcock can be caused by a crack around the collar or a solder joint that has broken. Have a radiator shop pressure test the radiator to make sure there are no other problems with the radiator, such as other cracks. During a pressure test air is pumped into the radiator and then it is dunked into a water tank. Air bubbles escaping from the radiator indicate leak sites and will need to be repaired. --mark
Most likely suspect: Rear Main Seal,, pull motor to fix... but before ya do that, check other items that may be loose, cracked, etc.
the radiator was replaced and the fluids are still evaporating or leaking out somehow. what other options could be wrong with the car overheating?
.035" Check other tuning information as listed on the radiator fan shroud.
Intake manifold gasket
Try to determine the substance: i.e. Transmission fluid (bad radiator) Engine oil (bad head gasket) Try flushing the cooling system and tracking other fluid levels
Follow the top radiator hose, fronm the radiator, to where it ends at the motor. This housing, that has two bolts, accross from each other, holding it down, is the housing for it. Remove the two bolts, and there it is.
Whether with the Chevy 350 or no, the thermostat is at the other end of the large hose that enters the radiator from the top; in the top of the engine block. Just follow the hose from the radiator to the thermostat housing.
I have two 1993 Chevy caprice and trying to remove the two front fenders from one of the cars to replace on the other car and also the radiator support that holds the head lamps to the other car. can you give me the bolt pattern on how to remove the two fenders and the radiator support.
one at a time, so you can go back to copy what's on the other side
how about checking to see if you need a new thermostat in your radiator for the first step, also make sure you have plenty of radiator fluid, also you may need an oil change, this includes your oil filter, also could be due time for a tune up, belts, as well as all other filters could cause problems in your vehicle. but if your engine is dying after its hot and okay after cooling for a few its most likely a radiator/thermostat problem.
It could be that the radiator cap is not able to maintain pressure. Check the radiator cap for cracks or any other damage. Replace if necessary. DO NOT remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot.
It is simple. Remove all hoses and tubing connections. Remove radiator retaning bolts -screws or other. Take the old one out and put the new radiator in it's place Now reconnect all things disconnected earlier.
