Hi I take it you on about the oil cooler which is part of the cooling rad in the front of the car, If so you will have to buy new rad or second hand if the oil is red it will be auto transmission fluid
if not is engine oil. Check where the pipe go if it is engine oil be careful driving as you may knack the engine hope this helps

1990 BMW 525i 2.5L engine overheats after rplaceing water pump, stermostat,fan clucth,radiator

There's trapped air in the cooling system.
  • You need to remove the bleeder screw on top of the radiator when adding water to the expansion tank.
  • With the engine running, pour water into the expansion tank till you see air go out through the bleeder screw's hole.
  • Just keep adding water until no more air bubbles come out then just put the screw back in place.
  • Then fill the expansion tank to it's normal level/line.

1992 325i has airlock. How do I use the bleed screw to get the air out?

Just open it up with the engine running. Then watch until coolant starts to come out and then top off the system after it cools down, make sure the coolant bottle is full on shut down..

Heater core removal. under the dash or remove???

Hi there,

Firstly, you don't have to remove the dash on them. There is a screw in the center of the lower cover that is sort of hidden in a hole there. Here are a few steps to help:
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable and drain the cooling system.
  • Disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core inlet and outlet connections in the engine compartment.
  • Allowing residual coolant from the heater core to drain. Cap the openings.
  • Working inside the vehicle, remove the lower instrument panel sound insulator.
  • Remove the heater floor outlet duct screws or clips and remove the duct.
  • Remove the heater core cover by removing the attaching screws and clips.
  • Remove the heater core cover.
  • Remove the heater core retainers and remove the heater core.
  • Position the heater core in the housing and install the retaining straps.
  • Position the heater core cover on the housing and install the attaching screws and clips.
  • Install the floor outlet duct and attaching screws or clips.
  • Install the lower instrument panel sound insulator.
  • Working in the engine compartment, connect the heater core inlet and outlet hoses.
  • Fill the cooling system.
  • Start the engine and check for coolant leaks. Allow the engine to warm up sufficiently to confirm the proper operation of the heater.
  • Recheck for leaks. Check the cooling system level.
Good luck!

Kia sportage 2000 engin chech signal come but not go hard start

If the vehicle was running hot it will continue to overheat until you locate a coolant leak and repair or replace the leaking part. It is critical you do not wait to repair this. You must first add water to your cooling system before you can troubleshoot the problem. Add the water while the vehicle is cooled down. If the vehicle is having trouble starting it is possible that you have allowed the engine to run hot too long. You could also have a head gasket leak from the motor. This could let coolant leak into the oil and you can check your oil and find a milky white substance that is a mix of coolant and oil. If that is the case you need to take the vehicle to a motor repair shop. To troubleshoot leaking cooling system get or borrow a cooling system leak check kit. It screws on in place of the radiator cap, you pump it up and use a flourescent light to then look in the engine compartment under the hood for a dripping green coolant leak. Good luck.

Hello. In order to access that trip computer you have to get at it from underneath. Most times, you have to pull the dash part-way out to be able to work on it. Any auto body shop can assist you in doing this. Offer them a few dollars for ten minutes of their time. Joe

1998 Mercedes Convertible Top Slow and Drips Oil

Your top is moved by an electric motor wich operates a hydraulic pump which moves two pistons which move the top.
The "oil" thet you see is probably hydraulic fluid leaking from the drain hole in the car near the tire.
You have a leak in the hydraulic system.
You need to start at the motor/pump/reservoir unit behind the seat and find the leak.
Most commonly, it is a bad line. Second in popularity is a bad cylinder(s). Third on the list is the motor/pump/reservoir.
If you replace a line, do them all. If you replace a cylinder, replace them both.

Where to fill gear oil in manual 5 speed 1990 geo lsi

It should be the same place as a 1991 Metro, on the back side of the transaxle there is a plug that takes a 15/16 wrench to remove. the plug faces the drivers side tire. If oil drips out when you remove the plug it is full. Otherwise use your finger to see if you can touch the oil. Fill with some type of syringe. jeb
