How do I remove the radiator from a 2003 S60?

How do I remove the radiator from a 2003 S60 Turbo with an automatic transmission? Specifically, how do I remove the transmission line compression fitting at the radiator?

    Thanks alicantecoli. I was able to remove the compression fitting by squeezing the two tabs of the compression fitting and rocking the transmission line while pulling the line. There are two "O" rings that you need to take care not to damage. To re-install the line I just pushed it back in until the compression fitting locked in place.

    Thanks again for your help.

Engine light came on and car is over heating. Took it to auto zone and was told it's the fan relay. Its a 2003 PT Cruiser, Turbo. I opened the fuse box under hood. There are 3 spots for relays in there...

Turbo Radiator Fan

The radiator cooling fan is a variable speed electric motor driven fan. The radiator fan assembly includes an electric motor, fan blade, and a support shroud that is attached to the radiator. The radiator fan is serviced as an assembly (fan motor/fan/shroud).

The variable speed radiator fan is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) by way of a Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) signal. The duty cycle ranges from 30% for low speed operation then ramps-up to 100% for high-speed operation. This fan control system provides infinitely variable fan speeds, allowing for improved fan noise, A/C performance, better engine cooling, and additional vehicle power.

To control radiator fan operation, the PCM looks at inputs from:

Engine coolant temperature
A/C pressure transducer
Ambient temperature
Vehicle speed
Transmission oil temperature (automatic transmission only

How do i replace the radiator in a 1998 mitsubishi eclipse 2.0 non-turbo?


Drain engine coolant
Disconnect radiator upper and lower hoses from radiator
Disconnect transmission cooler hoses (if automatic)
Remove overflow hose from radiator neck
Set coolant jug and bracket aside
Remove two 12mm bolts holding upper insulators on
Unplug electrical connectors for cooling fans
Lift radiator up out of vehicle.

Alternately, you can unbolt the two cooling fans from the radiator and leave them in. They are held on with four 10mm bolts. It is easier to leave the fans installed for a first timer though

What kind of power steering fluid for a volvo s60 52 plate petrol 2 litre turbo

To avoid foaming and get the best longevity from your power steering unit, I would use "Automatic: Volvo transmission oil 1161540-8" which is Mobil 3309. It is a synthetic and will work well.

My volvo 2003 s60 transmission slips when the car warms up. I live in Nevada. What to do?

I'm assuming you have an automatic trans. So the first thing is check the transmission fluid. To do this have car warmed up, idling, and sitting level. Pull out the transmission dipstick and check level, add if necessary. Also check and see if the fluid has a burnt smell. If the fluid was low and you added fluid road test and if it still slips, and/or the fluid had a burnt smell the transmission needs to be serviced or overhauled. To have major transmission work done go to a good transmission shop, unless you have a lot of mechanical know how and experience I don't reccommend trying this one on your own. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

How do you replace the alternator in 2003 Volvo S60 2.3l turbo?

It's not that bad at all. After you remove the three bolts for the power steering pump and the two bolts for the drive belt tensioner it is sitting right in front of you.
