How to replace the trans cooler line connector in the radiator with clip 2000 s-10 zr-2


The tanks are plastic and if the hose fitting broke out then the fix is a new radiator. As in radiator coolers are prone to failure before you invest in a new radiator , consider buying an air to air oil cooler to cool the transmission oil . The oil will run at ambient temp and not at 95 degrees c or hotter and the radiator is not having the load of trying to cool really hot oil. Talk with an auto transmission shop to get some details and I think that you will find the oil cooler cheaper than a new radiator.

How do I change the coolant in a 2000 chev silverado


Some radiator have a valve located near the bottom of the radiator on the side facing the engine . If there is no valve just disconnect the radiator hose that is connected to the bottom of the radiator .If you want to change this fluid completely you may have to repeat the process after you replace the fluid in the radiator and you have driven the car for a while because otherwise all you would be replacing is the fluid in the radiator !

2000 chevy silverado 5.3 replaced the thermostat and water pump and flushed the radiator still overheating


Blow out the radiator core from the engine side with compressed air to get rid of bugs and other debris. Check the fan clutch if mechanical drive. If electric fan, make sure fan(s) come on when hot. You may have combustion products entering the cooling system. Check with auto parts supplier for test kit for same or check with a well equipped shop for a similar test. Make sure that both radiator hoses are not obstructed internally. Hope some of this helps!

2000 chevy 1500 silverado- rear brakes overheating


Have someone push & release pedal while at wheel with problem. See if it takes a while or slow to release. If yes, have wrench ready on bleeder screw, and try again, if it sticks/holds, crack bleeder screw, if it releases, I'd replace hose.

Overheating


Hi,

Based on your description "hard line from thermastat area has a heat wraparound it goes towards firewall", that would appear to be part of the heater system for the inside of the vehicle and would not affect the overheating of the engine.

Most engine overheating could be caused by:
  • insufficient coolant in the radiator or reservoir;
  • defective (stuck) thermostat;
  • too soft radiator hoses (upper/lower);
  • water pump, belt, tensioner;
  • clogged radiator;
  • radiator fan motor, clutch (if has got one), relay.
Additionally, in a large number of vehicles, the radiator fan motor would only work the A/C or heater is ON.

Corrective action would require determining which is the culprit, pls try:
  • remove the thermostat completely out and test drive, see if the overheating comes back, if yes, then it is not the thermostat, if no then the thermostat most likely is stuck closed and would need replacement;
  • on start from a cold engine, remove the radiator cap and pls check if the water flows when the engine is revved. If yes, water pump is working, if not, water pump is defective;
  • in a closed loop cooling system such as in your car, there is a possibility that the radiator hoses might have thinned down or gotten softer. This could be checked by revving the engine while looking over the hoses, there should be apparent sagging or reduction in diameter when the engine is revved. If any, then they are too soft and would need replacement;
  • clogged radiators could be flushed/cleaned by removing the drain plug at the bottom.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
