Just got a 96 Corolla and over heated. Noticed brown water coming out from under it. And when opened the radiator cap. Found brown sludge in it. Don't knw what to do


Sounds and looks like the radiator is corroded internally. My guess is that it has been leaking for a while and re-filled with water only and no anti-freeze to help keep it clean. Pull the bottom hose off the radiator and try to flush it out with a hose and see what you get.

What are the 2008 Dodge Sprinter 3500 diesel antifreeze change instructions


Remove the radiator cap.
Remove the radiator drain bung from the bottom of the radiator.

Drain fluid into a container.

If no fluid present, then refill radiator and perform a system pressure check.

Once all fluid has been drained, and any faults repaired, then refil with a 50-50 water to anti freeze mixture.

Check:
1. Radiator if there's cracked 2. Water hose from top and bottom on radiator 3. Water pump in right side, see if gasket broken 4. Thermostat gasket 5. hoses to heater core

Car is running hot had a recent radiator change, the top and bottom hoses are very hard and hot ! could this be the thermostat stuck closed?


Check your coolant level. It may be low.
Did they put the proper mixture of anti-freeze back in? I would have the anti-freeze checked. Or you can buy a simple little tool for a few bucks and do it yourself.

A radiator hose is supposed to be "hard" to withstand the heat. If hoses become soft it is time to replace them.

I don't know enough about Mercedes to answer your question much further other than to suggest the thermostat. If they put in a new radiator, they should have suggested putting in a new thermostat also, but they don't always do that.

Check your anti-freeze mixture first.

Simple things first.

Walk through on how to replace a thermostat in a 2001 Jeep grand Cherokee


Jennipherbrr,

1. Make sure the car is cold. Remove the radiator cap (press & turn about 1/4 turn to remove pressure in the system) Once the pressure is bled off you can remove cap and leave it rest on the filler opening.

2. Find the petcock on the radiator (the little valve attached to the radiator. You have to open/turn clockwise to drain the anti-freeze. Drain anti freeze below thermostat housing. About 1/2 to 1 gallon.

3. Have a catch basin for the anti freeze under the car. Remove upper radiator hose from radiator and thermostat housing.

4. Remove thermostat housing from engine block (usually two or three bolts in the thermostat housing). Scrap off ALL old gasket material from engine block. Double check and make sure all gasket material is removed from surface. If not the thermostat housing will leak.

5. Install new gasket with some high temp silicone. Place a couple of dabs on the thermostat housing and gasket (the silicone is used to keep the gasket in place) *MAKE SURE YOU INSTALL the thermostat the same way you took it out. Don't over tighten the thermostat housing bolts.

6. Remove the radiator cap and replace the anti freeze you removed (make sure the anti freeze is clean). Fill the radiator to the top of the filler neck and replace the radiator cap (push and turn the radiator cap to the right- like a pill bottle). Start the car and make sure the temperture guage goes up. The guage pointer should be in the middle of the guage.

7. Check the radiator reservoir for proper anti freeze level. DO NOT OPEN THE RADIATOR CAP WHEN THE CAR IS HOT!!! THE ANTI FREEZE IS HOT AND WILL BURN YOU.

Hope this helps

HOW DFO YOU DRAIN THE RADIATOR OF 2002 3.4l MONTE


it should have a drain plug on the inner bottom that twist out. If not the bottom rad. hose will be fine to remove. I drain the water, and then run water through it with the hose still off. Replace the plug or hose and put in a cooling system cleaner (prestone) and fill with water. Start the car and let run for until it reaches a normal running temp, keep running for 5 min. urn engine off, let it cool and drain water. I then flush it again with water to remove any rust or gunk left in. I do this until I see good clear water running out. Reinstall your plug or hose and fill with (anti-freeze) be sure to get the right anti-freeze, some take a different color. If you use 50/50, it will take 3-4 to fill or 1 straight anti-freeze with mixture of water until full. Good luck
