How do i change the radiator fluid?


Most radiators have a drain plug on the bottom tank the engine block also has a drain plug . Remove the radiator cap ,open both drains ,let all the coolant run out, if there is no radiator plug remove the lower hose , remove the heater demister hoses, with the heater control on hot flush out all the coolant from the heater radiator. with a garden hose, till the water runs clean, tighten the radiator plug or re fit the hose,put a garden hose into the radiator and flush out till the water at the block plug runs clean ,refit the heater hoses, refit the block plug, fill the radiator from the hose leave the cap off , If it has a overflow tank clean and flush it. start and run engine for 5 minutes top up radiator if needed . stop engine and drain out all water. most important that all old coolant is drained out, only buy the best coolant you can . If you make up your own use only distilled water. keep some to top up with never mix with another brand. Fill radiator with coolant top up over flow tank, run engine top up coolant as needed, refit radiator cap run for another 10 minutes check for leaks,

What are the 2008 Dodge Sprinter 3500 diesel antifreeze change instructions


Remove the radiator cap.
Remove the radiator drain bung from the bottom of the radiator.

Drain fluid into a container.

If no fluid present, then refill radiator and perform a system pressure check.

Once all fluid has been drained, and any faults repaired, then refil with a 50-50 water to anti freeze mixture.

Where is drain plug on radiator for 2006 pontiac grand prix


usualy the drain pluggs are located ON or neer the bottom [1-2 inches] of the radiator it should be a butterfly looking plug you can usualy turn by hand maby a small pair of plyers will be needed. some cars its facing the engen or on the engen side some are on the outside or bumper side of radiator. you may need to lay on your back and shimmy under face up so you can clearly see. sometime they are more difficult to find some cars have a pan looking cover on the bottom of radiator you shouldent need to remove this just feel around over the top of pan for a butterfly or wingnut lookin plug. it may be in a ressesed hole. i would start looking on the side the lower hose is on and go from there. also you dont need to remove this plugg once you find it just loosen it and the fluid starts flowing out. have something ready to catch the fluid in and NEVER do this after the car has been driven. this fluid remains very hott a very long time the last thing you need is to have hot fluid falling on you and you cant move because your under the car. remember if green fluid come out green fluid goes back in. if orange fluid comes out orange fluid goes back in. REMEMBER [ RIGHT TO TIGHT ]- [LEFT TO LOOSEN.].

The transmission started to kick out of drive for no apparent reason.now I have a oily substance in the raditor


Very likely that the oil you have found in the radiator is transmission fluid. There is a built in transmission cooler that is inside one of the radiator tanks. If the cooler fails, trans fluid will get into the coolant and when shut off, coolant can migrate into the transmission. You need to replace the radiator and then drain and replace the trans fluid. You cannot drain all the fluid (pan removal only gets rid of about half) so it's best to do that once using a low priced but proper grade of fluid, run it for about an hour, then drain again and re-fill with a better quality fluid. (also not a bad idea to use some lucas trans conditioner in there).
Hopefully, you haven't damaged the transmission, otherwise you may be looking at a rebuild.

How tjo do a radiator flush in a 1999 Grand AM SE


The best way to flush it is with a flush machine.But,if you don't have one then follow these steps. 1. Put a catch pan underneath,where you will be draining the fluid. 2. loosen the petcock at the bottom of the radiator. If you don't have access to it,then remove the lower radiator hose and run the car for a minute to let the rest of the fluid drain. 3. With the fluid drained out,tighten up the petcock or the hose and put a bottle of radiator flush chemical in it.Prestone makes this and you can get it at a parts store. 4. Add the contents of the bottle and fill the rest up with water. 5. Run vehicle for 10 minutes and drain. 6. Loosen the 2 pressure relief valves.1 is located on the coolant tube running from the passenger side to the drivers side.The other one is located on the thermostat tube.They are both copper in color and you will need a 10 mm wrench and a 6 mm or 7 mm wrench to loosen them up. 7. Add the recommended fluid,usually Dex-Cool for that year,until it comes out of the relief valves.Tighten the valves back up (be careful,they break easily) and run the vehicle till at proper temperature. If it seems to get a little on the hot side, Loosen the relief valve until the air bubbles are gone and top off the fluid. Please remember to dispose of the fluid properly in accordance with the law.

My 2002 Jeep Liberty 3.7 liter is leaking coolant from what appears to be the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.I have to replace about 2 quarts of fluid after a short drive.And no one has drained...


The Drain Plug aka Radiator Drain **** has an o-ring on it that does wear-out over time, causing a leak. You can remove and replace these relatively ease. They only turn 1/4th to 1/3rd Counterclockwise to Open and Clockwise to Close. Work on only when the engine is cool. Leave the cap on the radiator to create a suction, decreasing the amount of radiator fluid you will lose. OR drain the Radiator Fluid into a clean container and save for reuse.
Have the new Radiator Drain **** ready for immediately insertion after removing the other leaking Radiator Drain ****. To Remove:
Twist the Radiator Drain **** counterclockwise and pull, continuing to twist counterclockwise removing it.
Immediately install the new Radiator Drain **** by first pushing in and then twisting clockwise to close.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

I need to drain the antifreeze where is the plug from the engine block


The textbook method is to remove the drain plug. Most drain plug is make of nylon/plastic and it may fall apart while you turn it.

The professional method is to loosen the lower radiator clamp and drop to lower radiator hose.

Drain the coolant onto a large drain pan and recycle the coolant

Cannot drain radiator in my 2003 dodge durango to flush system


I'm guessing that you do not have a radiator drain plug. It would be located on the bottom of the radiator. If not the next best solution is to disconnect the lower radiator hose. You will only need to loosen the clamp, and slide the hose off the radiator. Don't forget to have something to use to collect the fluid. Keep it off until you are ready to refill. Hope this helps
