Where do you find the radiator cap in order to remove it and add radiator sealant on a 1997 Oldsmobile Aurora?

: The overflow cap (radiator cap) is on top of the tank that sits on top of the dr. side fender under the hood.some of the newer cars do not have a "radiator cap" it goes in to the overflow tank . i would not suggest using radiator stop leak because it can clog up the radiator and heater core on the car if you must use it only as a last resort.

Unbolt and remove the top cover, or metal shroud. This will give you access to the radiator. Remove the rad. hoses and trans. lines. Unplug and/or remove the two fans ( I left them on the radiator when I removed the radiator) then unbolt the radiator and lift out of the car. It will be somewhat heavy if you do not have the fluids drained from it. I assume you need to get the tanks repaired due to leaking.

Sealant is a very temporary fix that should only be used as a last resort. It may patch the leak but will also likely plug up the heater core and elements, making it impossible to use the heater or air conditioner. If you do decide to put sealant in, you can remove the hose leading into the radiator and pour it into that, or put it directly into the coolant reservoir tank. Not all cars have a traditional radiator cap that is easily accessible.
