Question about Cars & Trucks
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.
if all is good you will have headlites

eng.temp.coolant sensor,located on thermostat housing,if u think sensor is defect,this check will make engine light come on,unplug elect. connection on sensor while car is idling,cooling fan will start up within 1 min.if it doesnt check fans power circuit.or apply batt.voltage directly to fan to see if fan will work.

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.

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
