Where is the thermostat on the 2007 chevy impala lt. Not at the end of radiator hose


On this engine it isnt on the radiator hose it is on the hose that goes from the overflow bottle to the coolant housing. follow the tank to the block . you will need to drain the overflow bottle to remove this hose without making a mess.The thermostat is located in a hausing wher the hose bolts to the block.

Not pulling coolant from overflow jug


Pressure testing just tests that the radiator cap resists a certain amount of positive pressure. I assume you are saying that it is not drawing back from the overflow when the engine cools down. It is likely that the coolant is being blocked right inside the overflow jug by some dirt or debris. Remove the overflow jug and clean it out - and clean the overflow hose too, in case it is obstructed.

Where does the overflow hose drain out.....the location


The overflow drains and picks up coolant from the overflow bottle, or coolant resevoir. This is the same bottle where you top off your antifreeze. Usually located near the radiator.

Van is losing water but the overflows continues to stay full. No cracks in radiator and the cap where you put in the water has a hose going in but no hose on the opposite opening.


In a properly working system, the coolant expands as the coolant temp rises. The excess coolant flows into the overflow container by the hose that runs from the bottom of the overflow to the top of the radiator, under the radiator cap. When the coolant begins to cool down, it contracts,drawing fluid back into the radiator from the overflow. The water pump has a "weep" hole located near the bottom of the pump housing that will leak coolant if the pump is going bad. In some engines, the 3.0, the water pump is located under the camshaft timing belt cover, and is a BEAR to deal with. However, the coolant should be pulled into the radiator when the engine cools, so check that the hose from the top of the radiator is attached to the bottom of the overflow and that it is not blocked or pinched. Have the system pressure tested to verify that it has no leaks. Hope this helps. Dano

I have a puddle of anti freeze on the ground in front of my pathfinder


There are many places antifreeze can leak from. You are going to need to investigate to try and locate where the leak is originating from. It may be a radiator hose, the radiator itself, the thermostat gasket or even the overflow hose from your overflow tank. Once you think you have determined the approximate location you can repost back here for more assistance.

    Drain the cooling system by removing the radiator cap (8100) and attaching a 9.5 mm (3/8 inch) inside diameter hose to the draincock nipple, located at the lower rear corner of the radiator tank. Then, open the radiator draincock (8115) and allow the coolant to flow through the hose into a suitable container.
  1. Loosen hose clamps at throttle body and engine air cleaner assembly. Remove air cleaner outlet tube and position aside.
  1. Remove radiator overflow hose from the radiator, disconnect two hose locators at top of radiator and position hose aside.
  1. Remove two fans shroud bolts. Lift the fan shroud out of the lower retaining clips and position it on the fan blade.
  1. Position upper and lower radiator hose clamps, remove hose from radiator and position it on the fan blade.
  1. Disconnect the two transmission cooling lines from the oil cooler fittings on the radiator, install protective caps over lines and position aside.
  1. Remove two upper radiator bolts.
  1. Tilt the radiator back (rearward) approximately 25 mm (one inch) and lift directly upward, clear of the radiator support bracket and the fan blade.
Installation
  1. Position the radiator into engine compartments, make sure that mountings on both tanks are inserted into radiator support brackets. Install radiator retaining bolts. Tighten to 6-8 - (54-70 lb-in).
  1. Remove protective caps from cooler lines. Connect the two transmission cooling lines at the oil cooler fittings on radiator. Tighten to 16-24 - (12-17 lb-ft).
  1. Install upper radiator hose and position hose clamp. Tighten to 3 - (26 lb-in).
  1. Install lower radiator hose and position hose clamp. Tighten to 3 - (26 lb-in).
  1. Position fan shroud in lower retaining clips and install upper bolts. Torque to 6-8 - (54-70 lb-in).
  1. Position radiator overflow hose, connect to radiator and locators.

Were is the drain plug for the radiator located? Do you have to take the splash shield off to get to it?


Anything on the radiator is difficult to get to. I usually remove the small hose that goes from the overflow bottle into the lower radiator hose to drain the cooling system. If you look at the passanger side of the car in front of the wheel down at the bottom you will see where the lower rad hose goes into the radiator there is a tee where the small hose from the overflow tank comes in, remove the pinch clamp and pull the hose off, have a big pan ready because it will come out fast! Good luck. P.S. Please dont do this with the engine hot!

How do you remove and replace the radiator of a 1997 EL Ghia?


first undo the hoses, there are 4 water hoses and 2 oil hoses, the bottom hose is difficult on the high side because of the alternator.
un plug the 2 wire connections (don't forget the locking tabs) then undo the air duct held by 2 screws. followed by 2 bolts located on the top of the radiator and lift the fans straight up
there are 2 larger bolts that hold the radiator in at the top. lift straight up.
when replacing be sure to place in locators in the bottom of radiator and fans
