1998 crv radiator needs to be flushed, how do i do this?


Pull the lower hose off from the water pump, pull the upper hose off the goose neck at top, stick a garden hose in the bottom radiator hose end and seal it best you can with your hand or rags stuffed around it, turn the water on and leave water running for a while. Be sure to aim the upper radiator hose out from under the hood to keep water off the engine. After about 15 minutes or so, turn the water hose off and re-connect radiator hoses, refill the radiator and put the cap on. You've just backflushed your radiator.

How do I drain my radiator on a 2005 envoy Denali


If there is not a pit **** on the bottom or side of the radiator by the lower hose you will need to loosen the lower radiator hose and gently work the lower radiator hose off at the radiator and drain it into a drain pan. If not at the lower radiator and if the water pump connection for the hose is easier to work on you can loosen the clamp on the hose there and pull the radiator hose back and drain it from there. Once it is drained push the hose back in place and tighten the hose clamp. Refill the radiator slowly as not to get an air lock in the radiator, also once you think it is filled start the truck and leave the radiator cap off until the thermostat opens and add more antifreeze to top it off. Hope this helps.

KIA PICANTO 2004 1.1 THERMOSTAT LOCATION. WE HAVE TRIED TO STOP THE OVERHEATING WITHOUT SUCCESS. CAN ONLY BE THE WATER PUMP OR THERMOSTAT.


When the car is running does the top of the radiator get hot? if so your thermostat is opening as it should. if the radiator remains stubbornly cool then your diagnosis of a bad thermostat is probably right. Have you tried running the car from cold with the coolant cap off. If the water is agitated it could be that you have a blown head gasket and that hot engine gases are heating the coolant.
As to where you thermostat is: follow the hose from the top of the radiator back to the engine block. The thermostat is housed (recessed) in the engine block itself at the base of the angled pipe to which the radiator hose is attached. You will need to drain the coolant and remove the fasteners retaining this pipe to the engine to gain access to the thermostat. Take care not to damage the gasket as you may have to reuse it. Check you old thermostat by putting it into a pan of boiling water. If it opens wide and then closes again when cold it is OK.

How do replace radiator hose


As car repairs go, a radiator hose is one of the easier jobs.

Get a replacement hose.

Wait for the engine to be cold.

Loosen the hose clamps at each end of the hose.

Use a heavy screwdriver if needed to loosen the hose from the radiator and engine. Pull the hose off both ends.

Put new hose on, with the clamps. Tighten the clamps.

Fill the radiator with coolant as needed.

done.

How to change radiator 1998 oldmobile intrigue


Hope this helps you. Here are the basics. There are many problems you may run up against (frozen bolts, stubborn or cracked hoses, rusted clamps, etc)that may need to be fixed or replaced before proceeding: SHut off engine, allow to cool completely. Disconnect the cooling fan, remove negative battery terminal connection. Drain radiator by opening draincock and/or removing lower radiator hose, collecting coolant in a drain pan. Do not let it go onto the ground - bad for environment! Open top radiator hose to allow remainder of coolant to flow out. A few quarts of coolant will remain in the engine block. You will want to totally flush and refill AFTER replacing the radiator to get all the crud out of the system. Unbolt radiator and disconnect any other items still attached (transmission cooler, temp sensor wires, etc.). Remove radiator and replace with new, reattaching all items removed from old radiator. Inspect other items and possibly replace suspects. Reattach hoses and make sure the clamps are tightened without pinching hoses excessively. Do a flush job with water/radiator flush, making sure the water runs clear out the draincock. Instructions for flushing the cooling system are usually printed on the radiator flush bottle. Be sure the heater is on and the engine warms up completely to open the thermostat. SHut off engine and drain as much water as will leave. Fill with 50% coolant mix (Dexcool or equivalent). Estimate water remaining in the engine and add 100% coolant to balance. COmplete fill with 50% mix. Remove air by running engine until warmed with the radiator cap off, adding coolant mix along the way.

96 Grand Am radiator


if you don't have a draining nozzle at the bottom of your radiator than you'll have to disconnect your bottom radiator hose to drain the radiator fluid.Easy to do,but just make sure you have a drain bucket handy when you take the radiator hose off.Radiator hose is just ckamped on and most likely the only tool you need is a flat head screwdriver to loosen up the clamp and pull the radiator hose off.
