You will need to remove the radiator from the car and take it to a radiator shop to be repaired unless you know some one with a welding machine and the special rods that it will take to do the job. now it might sound extreme ,but u might get off cheaper if u call around to the used car yards and see if u might get lucky .its not uncomon to find near new autoparts in junk yards ,not to mention less then half the price of new parts.its not a problem to remove and replace the radiator.if u need instructions on how to do it ,im sure we could manage that ,

Radiator hose leak only when car is off.


if i had to guess i would say there may be a small crack where the hose connects, when it heats up the crack seals itself once it cools it will leak again.

Possibility of a cracked block. how can i be sure/


Vehicles: Any with the above symptoms

A cracked cylinder block will cause either:
(a) motor oil contamination of engine coolant
(b) coolant contamination of motor oil
(c) white exhaust smoke, due to coolant seeping into one or more cylinders.
(d) more than one of the above
(e) all of the above

Oil infiltrating into coolant is easy to see - drain some coolant out through the pepcock at the bottom of the radiator, and place it into a styrofoam coffee cup. Oil droplets floating on top of the green (or orange) coolant are easily seen. Or visualize oil by looking into the top of the radiator through the radiator cap.
Coolant infiltrating into and mixing with motor oil will permanently damage the engine (seizing it up through loss of lubrication), and must be prevented.
A leak from above the front suspension is, as physicians like to put it, "nonspecific", with the most likely cause a water pump seal or hose/hose connection.
A leak from near the fire wall will usually be a heater core hose, or hose connection.
A coolant leak on the same side of the engine as the water pump is a leaking water pump or water pump seal until proven otherwise.

To rule out everythng else, here's the 1999 Honda CR-V Troubleshooting Guide for Coolant Loss/Coolant Leaking:

Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect Water Pump - Worn, Cracked or Leaking Water Pump, or Water Pump gasket.
2 Inspect Head Gasket - Leaking Head Gasket.
3 Inspect Radiator - Leaking Radiator Hose(s).
4 Inspect Radiator Cap - Worn or Damaged Radiator Cap.
5 Inspect Radiator Hose - Ruptured, Cracked or Leaking Radiator Hose.
6 Inspect Freeze Plug - Leaking Freeze Plug(s).
7 Inspect Intake Manifold Gasket - Leaking, Worn, or Damaged Intake Manifold Gasket.
8 Inspect Water Outlet - Cracked, Leaking or Damaged Water Outlet.
9 Inspect Heater Control Valve - Leaking or Faulty Heater Control Valve.
10 Inspect Radiator Drain Pepcock - Loose, Damaged, or Faulty Radiator Drain Pepcock, or Pepcock O-ring.
11 Inspect Engine (DOMESTIC ONLY) - Cracked Cylinder Block Leaking Coolant into at least one Cylinder, causing white exhaust smoke.

I am losing coolant on my car and I see that the coolant from the reservoir is leaking from a little black rubber hose that"s connected to the firewall.


The black rubber hose may be bad and needs replaced. This hose should connect to the radiator at the radiator cap and run along the firewall to the coolant reservoir. Also the coolant reservoir might be cracked and leaking on to the rubber hose, if this is the cause just replace the coolant reservoir which may be a dealer only item, check at you local auto parts store and they will tell you if it is a dealer only item. If you have to replace the coolant reservoir, make sure the car has not been run and the coolant at the radiator is cool, cause when the engine is hot the hot coolant runs into the coolant reservoir till it cools and returns to the radiator when engine is turned off and cools.

I need to replace a cracked radiator on a Saturn SW1. How do I remove, replace, fill and vent it?


You'll have to drain the coolant by disconnecting the bottom radiator hose. try and catch the coolant and dispose of it by epa rules (do not pour down the drain or on the ground), then disconnect the top hose.
If it has electric fans remove them. If not remove the fan shroud and you may have to remove the fan depending on space to get radiator out.
Then there'll be a couple (usually 4) mounting bolts holding it in.
Once out replace in the reverse order of taking out and make sure you change the rubber grommets from the old radiator to the new one or replace them.
If you want to flush the block do it before reconnecting bottom hose.
After all together and radiator topped up, start vehicle with radiator cap off and top up as coolant goes through the system until it starts to overflow a little then put cap on.
If is a newer model it may have a coolant bleeder valve which is usually located near/on the thermostat housing which you crack of while vehicle is running till coolant is coming out and not air.
If doesn't have a bleeder valve just check coolant again after you've gone for a drive in it then let it cool down. DO NOT remove cap while the car is hot.

My bronco leaks water under the ungine badly


There are a few things that could cause a major leak in your cooling system Check all of your hoses to be sure they are tight check your radiator for holes and leaks.Check the overfill tank for cracks if it is equipped.Check the hoses that go to the heater for breaks in the hoses or for leaks.Next would be to check your water pump for leaks in the gasket and the thermostat housing for leaks Also check the hoses that are connected to the radiator for leaks..If its that major of a leak I would look more at the radiator or water pump.I hope this provides a little information to help find a solution.

Radiator leak


The hose that attaches the upper pipe on the driver side could be crack over the clamp could be loose. Loosen the clamp completely and remove the hose from the radiator. Check the hose for cracks and if there are any replace the whole hose. If not, replace the clamp. Remove the old clamp and get a new one that is the exact size or very similar. place the clamp on the hose, install hose back to radiator and tighten. If this does not solve your problem have the vehicle checked out by the certified automotive technicain.
