It's not necessary to cap off but would be good to keep debris / insects out of there. Nothing will leak if left uncapped.

I have a 2002 kia sportage. I bought a new radiator and it did not come with the trans cooling lines ready to go. The radiator has that area where they should be. Is this something I take to a shop and...


If you bought the correct radiator for your
application, it would look & install the same as
the one you removed

All those I see on the internet have a cooler tube on
one side & a fitting on the other,only one motor & one listing
so I don't know what you were sold,take it back

Need the steel tubing that goes to from my transmission to the radiator to cool the transmission.


The transmission cooler lines are now (thanks to GM), make your own. I know that your fittings are tapered, and you may wonder how to do so, but the dealer sells adapter fittings, that you can replace in your trans, and radiator, allowing you to use standard brake tubing. Thanks...

The trans coolant lines when replaced the line at the top of the radiator ,does it also go to the top of the trans? there is an upper and lower on both the trans and radiator, is it top to top and bottom...


there are 2 lines from trans. to radiator.the 'cooler'' inside the radiator is no more than a tube connecting the two lines to form a 'loop' if all is original,there should only be one 'best fit'.T to T, B to B [ lines parallel] sounds like it.

Radiator


u just don't hook up anything to the cooler fittings on the radiator, it installs just like a standard radiator. All after market replacement radiators have fittings for automatic trans cooler lines, they don't make a manual trans radiator, u just use the auto trans one.

Grand vitara radiator over heating


I have had brand new Thermostats that are bad. The way to check a thermostat is to boil it in water and see when it opens. You may need to have your radiator cleaned or roded out. You can also remove your thermostat and see what happens then I would start by flushing the system and see what you get.

Loosing power


The fuel filter is located just after the gas tank at the back. The filter is fitted to tube with standard tube fittings. You may also want to check the vent of your tank. You may just be having a plugged tank vent.

Engine running cold


Is the radiator cooling fan(s) running full time? Could have been mis-wired during engine swap.

1997 suzuki vitara. new battery now car wont start.


Assuming the terminals are hooked up correctly, are your cable ends corroded? Are you sure the fittings are clean and tight? If it was hooked up backward check your fuse box and hope it only fried some fuses.

Install a new radiator "1999 Suzuki Vitara


Yes you need to remove the fan. I believe the fan is bolted by 10mm small bolts to the top of your radiator. Remove your transmission lines, drain the radiator, remove the hoses and overflow hose, unplug the fan, remove it, and you're left with the 2 brackets on the front crossmember on both sides of your hood latch. Remove the 2 brackets and your radiator should lift right out
Good luck!
