Is your radiator Plastic and metal? or Just metal? where is the crack? Can you see the "crack" or can you just see it leaking antifreze? It could be a hose clamp leak,or small hole? At this point without knowing that it is a crack for sure ,all I can say is check hose clamps ,they also sell a product called Bars . Any auto parts store has ,it seals small radiator leaks ,be sure to follow directions on bottle! I would recommend changing the raditor if your keeping the car,or really depend
on it,they like to go bad at the worst possible times!

well cking fuses are for both headlights neither would work. while these bulbs produce heat, make sure not to touch glass, or get any debris, on the capsule prior to install. is so clean with rubbung alcohol
ck socket for corrosion, make sure you are getting voltage to socket.

SOURCE: 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier, 2.2 Water Pump.Can't remove pully.

USUALLY I LOOSEN ALL OF THE BOLTS BEFORE I TAKE THE BELT OFF TO HELP KEEP THE PULLEY FROM TURNING... USE A LONG SCREWDRIVER OR PRYBAR .. PUT IT BETWEEN THE TWO OTHER BOLTS AND LOOSEN THE 3RD. CONTINUE TILL ALL ARE LOOSE.. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REMOVED 2 OF 3 BOLTS THEN RE INSTALL THE OTHER 2 A FEW THREADS SO YOU CAN PUT THE SCREWDRIVER IN BETWEEN THEM TO STOP THE PULLEY FROM TURNING.

SOURCE: radiator hose 93 chevrolet cavalier not sure if it

depending on how many miles you have on the car i would look at the lower hose first; the other common problem on a 93 cav would be the lower radiator neck or radiator leak; the lower hose has less pressure on it than the upper so sometimes finding the leak can be tricky. with the engine off and cold squeeze the lower hose by the radiator to see if any fluid comes out. otherwise you would have to pressurize the system to find the leak

Where is the thermostat on a 1996 Chevy Cavalier?


Follow the lower radiator hose back from the radiator to the engine - where the hose is attached to the engine, you should find the thermostat housing.

Where is the thermostat on a 1996 chevy cavalier


Follow the upper radiator hose that comes out of the top side of the radiator and connects to a hose barb that is bolted to the engine block. That hose bard is held on by 2 bolts, take those two bolts out take the hose barb off and that is where the thermostat is.

Good Luck
