How to remove a radiator 03 Mercury Mountaineer 4.0 engine V6 I checked the hoses they're good, but small drops of fluid is coming from the bottom of the radiator looking like it coming from the hose


What is the problem exactly?
If the radiator itself is not the source of the coolant leak why do you want to remove it from the vehicle?

You will certainly be able to locate the leak if it is from the radiator unit itself and in that event you will need to replace it.

If you have a leaking radiator hose or the hose is too loose on the bottom radiator neck then you replace the hose or tighten the hose clamp if it is the adjustable type.

If the radiator hoses connected to the radiator are the 2003 originals then they will definitely be well passed their use by date and should be replaced in any event.

98 tacoma radiator replacement


Not a difficult process. start by draining your radiator from the drain plug on the bottom, passenger side of the radiator. Disconnect upper and lower hoses and drain as well.

You will need to remove the fan shroud. The trick is to remove the 4 bolts holding the clutched fan and remove the shrowed WITH the fan at the same time. This will save you from playing with the belts. From there, there is only a handfull of bolts and they are all easily accessible.

This morning the big hose that goes to my engine started to leak what looks like water i was wondering which hose is that, so i can replace it!


I think you are referring to the radiator hose,there is one at the bottom of the radiator & one at the top, you just ask for a top or bottom radiator hose( whichever one is leaking) for you make & model vehicle.....hope this helps......cheers.

How to replace the radiator fluid


- Make sure the engine is cold and not running.
- Drain the radiator fluid by opening the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator or for a better/faster drainage and cleaning, carefully remove the bottom radiator hose by first loosening the hose clamp.
- Open the radiator cap and water rinse/flush the radiator core via a garden water hose until you no longer see any dirty water coming out of the bottom hose (or drain plug).
- Flush the radiator over flow (plastic) container by overfilling it with your garden water hose.
- remove garden water hose, carefully refit the bottom radiator hose, tighten the bottom radaitior hose clamp, refit/tighten the radiator drain plug.
- refill the radiator with approved radiator fluid for your climate and also refill the radiator overfow tank to the indicated level..
- Refit radiator cap
- Start your engine until it warms up and check for any water or steam leaks. Refit and or replace any faulty hoses or radiator (regulator) cap!
It is not difficult and have fun!

Radiator hose 93 chevrolet cavalier not sure if it is upper or lowerthe one cracked comes out of bottom of radiator so i assume it is the lower


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

2003 volkswagon beetle radiater leak


Hi, you 1st have to determine the exact location of the leak, which may involve removal of the radiator to repair anyway. How bad is the leak? How often do u have to add coolant, and how much? If it's a minor leak, you can purchase 'radiator stop leak' from a parts store, that will seal it.
so, try the stop leak if it's a minor leak, you can have it removed and repaired, or purchase a new one. Having said all that, the leak could be a hose leaking, but running down and dripping off the radiator making it look like a radiator leak. With engine warm but not running, use a small mirror to hunt around to see if u can find the source of the leak. Look closely under the radiator hoses, as that could be where the leak is. It would be from the radiator bottom and up, any further back and it wouldn't show up at the bottom of the radiator, so no need to check back any further. Let me know what u find,good luck countrycurt0
