Oil was put in the overflow by accident 01 cavilier


Not a huge problem as long as you DO NOT run the car. You will find a valve or petcock at the bottom of radiator open it and drain all fluid from radiator - then using a flush kit from Walmart follow package directions and do a full flush of cooling system. I would do it twice, then refill with appropriate fluids should be good to go for under 30 bucks and an hour or so of your time

Oil leaking into water overflow/radiator 1999 saturn

My 1998 mazda b3000 overheated for the first time the other day at the end of a two hr trip. the overflow on the radiator ended up filling up with rust colored coolant and exploded. the overflow exploded,...


as far as the rust, that most likely has been in the cooling system for a long time and repeated flushing will help but rarely will it completely rid the problem.

Do you have heat or is the heater blowing cold? Could be a bad thermostat but it could be more serious such as extreme cylinder head pressure. hard to say without seeing the vehicle. Try to see if the coolant is circulating with the radiator cap off. If the thermostat is open you should see something.

How to Remove a Radiator in a 1996 Chrysler sebring


Check this procedure for Sebring Coupe and Avenger (see Figure 1 - click for zoom)...
The radiator is the corrugated fin, downflow type, and is cooled by electric radiator fans. Service the cooling system with high quality ethylene glycol or other aluminum compatible antifreeze coolant.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Loosen the radiator drain plug and, using a large capacity container, drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the radiator cap.
  4. If necessary for clearance, remove the bracket and plastic branch tube running from the air cleaner.
  5. Disconnect the overflow tube and remove the coolant reserve tank.
  6. Disconnect the upper radiator hose.
It is recommended that each clamp be matchmarked to the hose. Observe the marks and reinstall the clamps in exactly the same position when reinstalling the radiator.
  1. Label and disengage the wiring to the thermosensors and the electric fan assemblies.
  2. For vehicles with automatic transaxles, disconnect the oil cooler lines at the radiator. Plug the transaxle ports and the hose ends to contain the fluid and prevent contamination.
  3. Remove the lower radiator hose.
  4. Remove the bolts holding the upper mounting brackets to the support member. Remove the radiator, with the cooling fans as an assembly.

Fig. 1: Typical cooling system assembly-Sebring coupe and Avenger



To install:

  1. If the fan and shroud assemblies were removed with the radiator, they must be reinstalled before installing the radiator. The mounting bolts for the fans should be tightened to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm). If the thermosensors were removed, they should be reinstalled and tightened to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm).
  2. Reinstall the radiator, making certain all the mounts and bushings are correctly positioned. Tighten the mounting bolts to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm). Double check the drain plug to make sure it is closed.
  3. Connect the oil cooler lines and attach the brackets.
  4. Connect the wiring to the electrical components, making sure each is correctly located and securely fastened.
  5. Connect the upper and lower radiator hoses and the overflow hose. Install the coolant reserve tank.
  6. Install the branch tube and its bracket.
  7. Fill the system with coolant.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable, run the vehicle until the thermostat opens, fill the radiator completely and check the automatic transaxle fluid level, if equipped.
  9. Allow the engine to warm up fully and check that the fans cycle on and off correctly. Watch the coolant level carefully in the overflow tank.
  10. Once the vehicle has cooled, recheck the coolant level.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

How do you replace the radiator in a 1997 Ford Escort?


Check this procedure to REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(1.8L and 1.9L Engines)

CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place fender covers on the aprons.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Drain the cooling system.
  4. Remove the right and left-hand front splash shields.
  5. Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the radiator.
  6. If equipped with an automatic transaxle, disconnect the lower oil cooler line from the radiator. Remove the oil cooler line brackets from the bottom of the radiator.
  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8. If equipped with an automatic transaxle and air conditioning, remove the seal located between the radiator and the fan shroud.
  9. If equipped with an automatic transaxle, remove the upper oil cooler line from the radiator.
  10. If equipped with the 1.8L engine, remove the resonance duct from the radiator mounts.
  11. Unplug the cooling fan motor electrical connector and the cooling fan thermoswitch electrical connector.
  12. If necessary, remove the cooling fan thermoswitch for clearance.
  13. Remove the three fan shroud attaching bolts and remove the shroud assembly by pulling it straight up.
  14. On some 1.9L engines equipped with A/C, remove the upper radiator air deflector from the radiator and set it aside.
  15. Remove the upper radiator hose and the two upper radiator mounts.
  16. If equipped, remove the fluid cooler tube bracket bolts and coolant overflow hose from the radiator.
  17. Remove the radiator from the engine compartment by lifting it straight up.


2.0L Engine
