Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Trying to replace the radiator but I can't figure out how to remove the top horizontal metal support that is on top of the radiator. It seems that is spot welded to a vertical frame that's right in the middle and supports the A/T radiator.

Do not need to remove the top support frame? Should compare your new radiator to he one in your car...your radiator will slide forward of back to access the removal...after top and lower hoses are dis-connected...also transmission cooling lines must be dis-connected...then lift out...Hope this helps.

How do I put the water in the radiator?, where is the opening?

Should have a clear plastic tank on one side of the engine compartment with a cap. A hose runs from the top of the radiator to the tank.
The tank for the windshield washer has a snap on cap, the radiator reserve tank has a twist on cap.

I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty Sport, 3.7L that continues to overheat. The problem only seems to occur when I drive for 20 minutes or more, and above 65mph. It does not overheat when I drive in town at 35-40...

I had a similar problem with my 2006 Dodge Dakota cooling system. After the same tests and replacements you mentioned, the dealership replaced the radiator with a new radiator and the cooling problems disappeared. Apparently there was a defect internal to the radiator that did not let the radiator provide maximum cooling at higher temperatures. Hope this helps.

Im trying to relpace the radiator for my 97 Town and Country and I need advice on how it would be the easiest way to remove and replace it.

You will have to disconnect the battery, remove the air breather box for the intake, drain the radiator, unbolt the top radiator support and remove it, possibly if I remember correctly you will also have to unbolt the hood latch, disconnect the upper and lower radiator hoses, unbolt the cooling fans, and carefully tilt the radiator back towards the engine and lift it out. Be sure to recover the grommets from the bottom of the old radiator to use on the new one as they provide vibration dampening that the radiator needs as it is metal and plastic.

The wiper arm connection at the motor shaft is a soft metal and known to strip out and slip. No problem to replace. Get a new wiper arm before beginning the procedure. Remove the rubber cover at the pivot and remove the nut securing the wiper arm. Pull the stripped wiper arm off and place the new one on in a horizontal and original position. Put the securing nut on and tighten it enough that it won't strip again, replace the rubber cover and done. See, NOOOOOOO problem.
