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.

What is proper method for flushing the radiator and engine in a 1999 Pontiac Montana?


1: Drain coolant system
2: Purchase coolant flush, making sure you have the proper amount for your size of coolant system
3: Pour coolant flush into your radiator, filling the rest with water
4: On the coolant flush bottle it will tell you how long to run your vehicle
5: Once done running, let cool enough to open radiator cap, and drain system COMPLETELY by first draining out of pep **** on radiator, then taking one side of the hoses off the radiator and draining those
6: Put hoses back on and fill system with coolant. When the fluid gets to the top of the fill port on radiator, start vehicle and let run, allowing air to escape the system, and fill as necessary

Facing the front of the car, the drain plug is at the bottom of the radiator, right hand side, between the support rail and the radiator. There is a hole in the support rail to access this drain plug ( + ) style plug - unscrew counter-clockwise.

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

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive


Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but ....at your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.
