I believe either the a.c. hose or the radiator hose broke. Can i safely drive it to a nearest car shop or should i tow it?


If the a/c hose is broken, there would be a oily film in the engine compartment. If a coolant line or radiator hose is broken, you would have alot of fluid on the ground under the car [couple of gallons. First , remove the radiator cap and see if you have coolant there. Also start the car and if fluid starts comming out then the car will not be good to drive and should be towed.The car engine will be safe to run for 30 seconds before damage occurs, if coolant comes out. But not safe to drive. Let me know if that helps

I have a 1987 Olds Delta 88 Brougham> It has a plastic drain plug that is on the drivers side of the radiator. The knob is broken and can be pulled from the radiator. Can you replace this part or...


You can get these at the parts store. The one at this link should fit: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Motormite-Radiator-Drain-Plug/1987-Oldsmobile-88/_/N-iiruxZ91sqv?counter=0&itemIdentifier=98889_0_2826_

I know it's not the kind you had, but it will work. All you really need is a plug. You can even forget about the petcock (lots of cars don't have them anymore) and just remove the lower radiator hose to drain the system.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Power stering stopped working radiator overheated


You have a broken fan belt. Put the new one on according to the diagram under the hood. Replenish your radiator overfill reservoir and recheck it until all the air is purged from the system.

Oil lines going to radiator


There are no oil lines that go from the Oil Filter to the Radiator.

There are Transmission Fluid Oil lines that go from the Transmission to the Oil Cooler on the Radiator.  Plugging these, or not having them connected - will cause rapid transmission failure from overheating.

Lots of people even add additional tranny coolers.  Especially if they do much towing...  If the line is broken right at the radiator - it must be fixed.  If it is broken a little ways away - you can reconnect the lines using tranny fluid hoses.
