SOURCE: radiator valve not draining

Hi Rob: No special tricks that OI know of, but if there is any seepage it may be restricted by sediment. Close everything up, cap, vet and whatever, then fire up the engine with the drain open. until the blockage clears. Or, remove the whole valve from the radiator. Be careful of hot cookant. Good Luck - Ned

SOURCE: draining cooling system 2001 olds bravada

There is a drain plug on the radiator on the divers side, inside at the bottom. Note: most of the time when the plug is removed the O-ring get's damaged and needs to be replaced since it sticks to the radiator. Most of the time it's quicker and easier to disconnect the lower radiator hose on the passenger side and let it drain there. Most of the newer radiator don't even have a drain plug and if you want a drain plug,you'll have to drill a hole where the drain plug should be and place one there. The drain plug is around $4.99 at most Auto Parts store. Good luck and hope this helps.

How to change water pump


The water pump in your 2003 Chevy Cavalier circulates engine coolant from the radiator into the engine, where it absorbs damaging heat from the combustion process. The coolant is then pushed, by the water pump, into the radiator, where the heat it has absorbed is released into the air. When the water pump fails, overheating and severe engine damage can occur. The most common symptom of a worn water pump is a telltale leak from a small hole, called a weep hole, near the water pump shaft.
Skill level:Moderate

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery using an 8mm wrench and lay it aside. Place a drain pan under the driver-side front of the Cavalier and open the drain valve located on the bottom of the radiator. Remove the radiator cap from the coolant reservoir and allow the coolant to drain into the drain pan.

  2. 2

    Remove the serpentine belt, using a belt removal tool positioned on the tensioner pulley bolt to rotate the tensioner clockwise while sliding the belt off the alternator pulley. Disconnect the electrical connector from the alternator by pushing the release tab and then pulling the connector from the back of the alternator. Remove the two 13mm alternator bolts, located in the front of the alternator bracket, using a 13mm socket and ratchet. Add an extension to the socket and ratchet and remove the rear 13mm alternator bolt located below the alternator bracket reinforcing rib on the back of the alternator. Slip the alternator from the bracket and lay it aside.

  3. 3

    Remove the 10mm water pump pulley bolts using a 10mm wrench. Remove the 8mm water pump mounting bolts using a socket, extension and ratchet. Use a screwdriver to pry the water pump from the front of the motor. Clean the gasket surface on the engine using a gasket scraper until all traces of the gasket are gone.

  4. 4

    Attach the new gasket to the new water pump using gasket adhesive and install the new pump into the front of the engine. The gasket on the water pump in the Cavalier can be a little tricky to place, but it will only go on one way. Torque the water pump bolts to 18ft-lbs. using a torque wrench.

  5. 5

    Reinstall the water pump pulley and tighten the bolts securely. Reinstall the alternator and serpentine belt. Retighten the water pump pulley one final time with the belt installed to prevent loosening caused by vibration.

  6. 6

    Close the drain valve on the bottom of the radiator and fill the engine with a 50/50 mix of fresh coolant. Remove the bleed valve on the top of the thermostat housing to vent air from the system. Reinstall the bleed valve when coolant starts to escape. Start the engine and add coolant to the engine as it is drawn from the coolant reservoir. Fill the reservoir to the full level on the reservoir, and reinstall the radiator cap., Hope this helps & please don't forget to rate me, Kind Regards from Paul across the pond.

Where is the drain plug on the radiator located?


if u get under the car and look at the back of the plastic radiator side tanks (towards engine) u will see it, it is usually on the driver side, you can't see it from up top, the drain valve head looks like the head of a clock winding key and is black plastic. A much easier way to drain the rad is to just remove the lower rad hose.

I need to figure out how to drain the radiator fluid on my 2001 Chrysler Concorde?


Raise the vehicle. Locate the drain valve on the engine side of the radiator on the bottom tank on the driverside. The valve will look kinda like a butterfly wings together. Turn it counter clock wise and it will start to drain.

You can buy a florescent dye to add to the oil and a light to make the dye really shine.
Clean the engine with "brake clean" from a spray can at the oil leak areas ....then run the engine.
Check for the start location of the leak.
Start with a short run time ....... then longer run time if necessary until the leak(s) show.
With or with out the dye ......this brake cleaning method should help locate the leak(s).

Oil leak locations could be...in order of the most common on your car are........valve cover gasket,oil filter,oil pressure sending unit,drain plug,oil pan gasket,crank pickup sensor,rear seal.

I replaced the alternator on my 2003 Range Rover


I Suspect that you have AIR in your COOLING SYSTEM Fallow Procedures BELOW to Insure there is NO AIR IN COOLING SYSTEM


Draining and Filling Cooling System

Draining Procedure

Important: Do NOT add any engine coolant supplement sealant pellets to the cooling system. Drain and refill the engine cooling system every 5 years or 240,000 km, (150,000 mi) , whichever occurs first.

  1. Park the vehicle on a level surface.
  2. Remove and clean the coolant recovery reservoir.
Caution: Refer to Radiator Cap Removal Caution in Service Precautions.

  1. Remove the radiator cap when the engine is cool:
3.1. Slowly rotate the cap counterclockwise to the detention tab. Do not press down while rotating pressure cap. 3.2. Wait until any residual pressure, indicated by a hissing sound, is relieved. 3.3. After all hissing stops, press down on the radiator cap and rotate the cap counterclockwise in order to remove the cap.
Important: Recover and store used coolant in a used coolant holding tank and submit the used coolant for recycling on a regular basis. Do NOT pour used coolant down the drain. Ethylene glycol antifreeze is very toxic. Disposing of ethylene glycol into the sewer system or ground water is both illegal and ecologically unsound.

  1. Place a drain pan under the radiator drain valve in order to collect all of the used coolant.
  2. Open the radiator drain valve located at the bottom of the radiator tank. If only partial cooling system draining is required, drain enough coolant to perform the procedure.
  3. Open the air bleed valve on the thermostat housing 2 full turns
    1. Open the air bleed valve above coolant pump 2 full turns.
    2. Place a drain pan under the engine block drains in order to collect the used coolant.Important: Allow the coolant to drain completely.

      1. Remove both of the engine block drains.
        • The front left engine block drain is located between the starter motor and the engine oil filter.
        • The rear right engine block drain is located near the crankshaft position sensor.
      Filling Procedure
      Reinstall the engine block drains
    3. Close the radiator drain valve,
      1. Install the coolant recovery reservoir. Notice: When adding coolant, it is important that you use GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL or HAVOLINE DEX-COOL coolant. If Coolant other than DEX-COOL or HAVOLINE DEX-COOL is added to the system the engine coolant will require change sooner; at 50,000 km (30,000 mi) or 24 months.
      2. Slowly add a 50/50 mixture of GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL or HAVOLINE DEX-COOL and clean, drinkable water to the radiator until the coolant level is at the base of the radiator fill neck.
      3. Wait for 2 minutes and reinspect the level of the coolant in the radiator. If necessary, add coolant to the radiator until the coolant level is at the base of the radiator fill neck.
      4. Install the radiator cap.Ensure that the radiator cap arrow points toward the radiator overflow tubeImportant: The air bleed valves are brass. Do NOT over-tighten the air bleed valves.

        1. Close the air bleed valve above the coolant pump.
          1. Close the air bleed valve on the thermostat housing.
          2. Fill the coolant reservoir with a 50/50 mixture of GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL or HAVOLINE DEX-COOL and clean, drinkable water. Caution: Refer to Radiator Cap Removal Caution in Service Precautions. Important: If the coolant temperature indicator turns ON, turn the engine OFF immediately and allow the engine to cool. Do NOT remove the radiator cap.
          3. Start the engine and allow the engine cooling fan to cycle on and off 3 times. If the low coolant indicator does not turn OFF and the coolant level is above the Full Cold mark on the coolant recovery reservoir, refer to Engine Coolant Temperature Gage Inaccurate or Inoperative.
          4. Turn off the ignition.
          5. Allow the engine to cool.
          6. Ensure that the engine coolant concentration is sufficient.
