Depending on how much is in there, you may try adding fuel stabilizer & as much fresh gas as you can, and you may be alright.

How to drain radiator on 2008 passat


You can always drain a radiator by removing the lower radiator hose; often the radiator has a drain **** you can unscrew as well. ON VW products there may be a quick-disconnect U-shaped wire bail that needs to be pulled out ¼-½" in order to release the plastic coupling (VW/Audi hoses are often unique, can't just buy one from the store) and then you have to winkle the coupling off. When you replace the coupling consider using a bit of raw coolant to lubricate the O-ring in the plastic coupling if there is one and/or replace the O-ring. If you break the coupling you'll need t? get a new hose assembly.

How to remove radiator from 2008 Suzuki xl7


Wait until the car is cool and drain the coolant into a bucket. There should be a drain on the radiator - take the radiator cap off so the coolant will drain. If there is no drain then take the lower hose off. Once all the coolant is drained then take the hoses off; if your car is an automatic, take off the transmission oil lines too. There will be a couple of bolts near the top to take off, also unplug the radiator fan power. The radiator should lift out although there might be a couple of bolts at the bottom too. Installation is the reverse. I would flush the engine and install new coolant and radiator hoses while you are at it.

Radiator flush


Where are you located sherdibelle, is the cost labor and parts. See if you can find a radiator shop that will boil out your radiator. I quickly checked and a after market radiator cost $150.00-$200.00 so the place you went to is charging $800.00 labor or is this at a dealership. what is the labor rate.

2001 sable where is the radiator drain?


The radiator drain is going to be on the driver's side along the bottom of the radiator. Best is to remove the lower radiator hose to drain the coolant. Common for the plastic drain plug to break when trying to remove causing you more work and to go out and locate a replacement drain plug. That's why 99% of garages will drain the coolant from the lower radiator hose.

2002 Chevy Cavalier how 2 replace radiator hose and a belt


First thing I would do is get your supplies. Antifreeze, lower radiator hose, 2 new hose clamps, serpintine belt, and I would purchase a Chiltons repair manual for your car. It is abour $15 for the manual but it will cover about very repair you will need to make as time goes on.
On newer cars you have to hold the automatic tensioner back with a wrench as you uninstall or reinstall the belt. Make sure you know or remember how the belt runs. You can put the belt most of the way on, then hold back the tensioner for the last step.
For the lower radiator hose, you need to drain the antifreeze from the radiator. The drain plug is usually on the bottom or the on the bottom engine side of the radiator. Make sure you drain it in a pan/ bucket/ pail as I believe it is against the law to drain it out on the ground and watch that pets/humans don't drink it because they will die. After draining it unsrew the clamps holding the hose on and remove the hose. Sometimes the hose will be stuck and twisting it or running a screw driver between the hose and the fitting will loosen the hose. Put the new hose on with the new clamps. I always use new clamp so you don't have to trust the old beat up/ stretched clamps. But don't throw out the old ones, as you may need them for an emergency repair sometime. Either put the old fluid back in(if it is still good) or put in the new stuff. Make sure you get the right mixture. You will need to run it a while and have the mixture checked.
Like I said about the book----it should cover both of these repairs, and tell you when to do routine maintence, the capacities of your fuel tank, radiator, oil, transmission, etc.

I hope this helps
