How do i change the coolant in 2000 dodge intrepid?

Should be a drain plug at the bottom of the radiator, if not you can disconnect the lower rad hose at the radiator. Remove filler cap to allow air in as coolant drains. Catch and dispose of drained coolant as it is sweet and animals will drink it and die

Radiator diagram rover 400

so do i , lets go outside and freeze...... location, location????
please ask a question.
and if it's freezing there, do say so. as the proceedure would
change , for that case.
answer, use 50% premix. do not mix it in the Radiator.

an 03 suzuki, rover 400, nice engine swap, if true the procedures
will take a genius mechanic.
first google and youtube your question, see what others do.
then ask things that are unclear.
also the procedure varies by engine options.
and if its just a drain and fill or a full service.
or (best way)
drain, flush, fill, new thermostat (if smart) and refill and burp, and road tests.
when you pull the bottom plug on RAD, this gets most of the coolant.
not just the RAD. (fyi)
on many engines there are block drains,
but most shops solve that with the flush trick.

should be at the bottom of the rad with a little hose coming from it .(the hose points down and goes nowhere just ther to help drain) if you cant find it you can also pull the bottom rad hose off and drain it that way.

I want to drain the water from my 97 Eagle Vision Rad so I can fill the resovior with the corect fluid, where is the point of drainage located? Help Please.

Should be a drain valve located on the bottom of the radiator, if not, you may have to just remove the lower radiator hose. Most radiators have drain valves, but there are a few that don't. Hope this helps

How do i install a radiator in my 2000 chrysler lhs 3.5

you need to disconnect your ground on your battery, then drain your rad at the bottom where the drain plug is. If not, pull the bottom rad hose and drain it that way. Remove the top rad hose. If the transmission cooler is part of the rad, you need to remove those lines that attach then you need to remove all the mounting bolts and any brackets in the way. You'll then pull it out and install the new one in the reverse order. Make sure to run the vehicle till the engine is very warm once you've filled it with coolant and remove the highest coolant hose you can find to get all the air out of the system, you remove it till it starts to lose coolant then put it back together. Always check your coolant after all this to make sure its at the right level.

make sure engine is cool then drain coolant by opening the drain plug at bottom of radiator. remove cap from radiator so coolant will continue to drain and when coolant is down enough to pull off upper radiator hose at intake then close drain, then remove two bolts at coolant housing and remove thermostate. clean gasket material from intake and housing and replace with new gasket and thermostate tighten bolts install hose fill rad with coolant water mix 50/50 and run engine with heat on floor until gets hot and you see coolant flowing in rad, install cap

Replacing the radiator system for nissan altima 1998

Drain coolant from the cooling system. White plastic drain plug in bottom of radiator.

take off bottom rad. hose and top rad hose.

All wrenches and sockets are either 10 or 12 mm. Remove air shroud from around radiator and fan.
Sometimes its easier to remove fan too.

If its an automatic, remove 2 rubber hoses at bottom of rad.

remove 4 bolts top and bottom that hold rad. in place.

reverse order of parts. Fill with coolant and check for leaks.

That is the basics of it.

How do i reverse flush fiesta radiator

(With the engine cold) remove the radiator cap

First drain the coolant out of the radiator in a container, either from a drain on the bottom of the rad, or by slowly removing the bottom rad hose.

Block, or pinch the top radiator hose

First, flush from the top... pour water into the rad cap hole for a while and let it come out the bottom hose.

Then, run water from the bottom, and let it run out of the open cap.

Then flush it from the top again.

This should flush the rad, unless it is clogged pretty solid.
