The radiator expansion tank will be located in the top left or right corner of the bonnet bay and should have a yellow cap.

Thermistor problem in '95 olds aurora. what does it look like and where do you get one?


I am not sure I understand your question. However, I believe you are taking about the thermostat.
You will find the thermostat on the engine where the top radiator hose connects to the engine. There should be two bolts that you have to remove in order to remove the metal piece that conceals the thermostat. After you do this the thermostat should be visible and you can now just pull it out either by hand or by pliers. Make sure you do this when the car is cool and has not been ran for a few hours. If you work on a vehicles cooling system and the vehicle is hot you can get burned by hot anti freeze. To put the thermostat in just do the opposite as you did to take it out. Then remove your radiator cap and refill the radiator with anti freeze. Be sure you leave the cap off and ideal the engine for 15 or 20 minutes after you reassemble your car and fill it with anti freeze because if you do not do this you may end up with an air bubble in you block which will cause it to over heat again. You can buy a thermostat and anti freeze at any of your local auto part stores. I hope this helps you out at least a little bit. I wish I could actually be there to do this for you, but seems how I am not there that is impossible. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

Engine warms well, heater fan blowing well, but very little heat comes into cab


It could be one of two things.
1. Bad thermostat. Your thermostat is pobably not opening when the engine warms up. Install a new thermostat and you should be OUT OF THE COLD. If not,
2. Your heating core and radiator is probably clogged. One way to solve this is. Flush out your radiator with radiator flush kit. Pease read your owners manual, (YOU NEED TO USE A SPECIAL TYPE OF ANTI FREEZE). If you use the the green color Presotne anti freeze, It will gradually corrode through the linings of your radiator. And the green color prestone anti freeze will blow out the radiator. So read your owners malual ( I beleive it says you have to use Dextron Anti Freeze ( Pink Color).. Replace your thermostat and flush out your radiator. Then refill your radiator with dextron anti freeze. Also make sure the anti freeze resivor is filled to the proper level.. Once you do all of this, YOU DEFFINITLY WILL BE IN HEAT.. YOU CAN DO THIS YOUR SELF ( iT WOULD TAKE ME NO MORE THAN 1 TO 2 HOURSFOR ME TO DO THIS IN MY DRIVEWAY) OR YOU CAN HAVE THIS DONE AT ANY QUICK LUBE LOCATIONS... HAPPY MOTORING

I need to replace the radiator fluid. I've never done this before. What do I need and how do I do this?


take the radiator cap off, only when engine is cool , start and turn the hater on high temp. once the engine thermostat has opened fill the radiator to top, replace cap. infront of the radiator in between the grille there is a small plastic reservoir, fill this to the proper level, also PS Make sure you add anti freeze and not just plain water it is best to purchase 50/50 mix as in the winter the plastic reservoir may freeze and crack without anti-freeze and you will be always adding water .

HOW DFO YOU DRAIN THE RADIATOR OF 2002 3.4l MONTE


it should have a drain plug on the inner bottom that twist out. If not the bottom rad. hose will be fine to remove. I drain the water, and then run water through it with the hose still off. Replace the plug or hose and put in a cooling system cleaner (prestone) and fill with water. Start the car and let run for until it reaches a normal running temp, keep running for 5 min. urn engine off, let it cool and drain water. I then flush it again with water to remove any rust or gunk left in. I do this until I see good clear water running out. Reinstall your plug or hose and fill with (anti-freeze) be sure to get the right anti-freeze, some take a different color. If you use 50/50, it will take 3-4 to fill or 1 straight anti-freeze with mixture of water until full. Good luck

Water pump


Fill the radiator completely with coolant mixture. Let the engine warm up 10 to 15 mins. Is the upper radiator hose warm? If yes, then the water pump and thermostat are good. If all this works, then the leak is somewhere else. Hope this helps.

Changing Anti freeze


60/40 but 50/50 is fine, Locate the the drain it is at the bottom of the radiator, drain out the old coolant (remove the pressure cap) and refill the radiator slowly, fill the coolant bottle all the way to the top, run the engine at high idle for 10-15 minutes, do not overheat it, shut it down and let it cool, recheck the coolant bottle and fill to full line, that should do it.
