I kind of dought they would take the hood off to replace your radiator .
If it was working before they may have moved the latch in the center down by leaning on it and yes you should be easly be able readjust it your self
Open the hood look at the latch if it has moved down you will be able to see because it was painted in the correct pisition from the factory . It will show you will need 1/2 in or 12 mm mabey a10mm 7/16 in wrench move it back so the paint lines line up again and tighten .
I will also give you a tip lubericate the latch with white liuthem gresse you can get in spray cans do all door latches and hinges your vehicle is a 2000 you will thank me its time to lube them all

I'm trying to close the hood on my son's 66 mustang. The grille seems to be riding too high as it seems to hit the bottom of the hood when the hood tries to shut. I think I have the right latch.


If all parts are original and there is no front end damage, the grill should not be a problem. The hood striker attached to the hood is normally not adjustable. Is it bent? The latch assembly is the adjustment and can be moved up or down by loosening the bolts that secure it to achieve proper hood closure/alignment

Lincoln continental steam coming out of hood


The engine coolant has evidently boiled. Allow it to cool and check the coolant level. Overall possible causes are

- low coolant level
- loose radiator cap
- split radiator hose
- cracked radiator tank
- failed thermostat stuck closed
- failed fan drive
- failed water pump or drive belt
- blown head gasket

so if the coolant level is OK or a top up does not fix it, you may require a mechanic.

How to line up hood that is pulling to oneside


If you changed finder or replaced finder, Check clearence make sure they look the same as other side. Next loosen bolts to where you can just barely move hood (bothsides) oops befor you do that check hinges on hood make sure there not bent or sprunge if they are replace it or them which ever is the case. OK loosen bolts then pull hood down to the latch don't latch it, but try to line the stub up with latch, carefully raise it up enough to where you can reach under to tighten bolts,( at least one on each side) then rase it up and tighten rest of the bots good luck

I have a 94 Toyota 4Runner. Recently, I was driving it and all of a sudden coolant started flying out from under the hood onto the windshield. I pulled over and opened the hood, and the cap for the coolant...


I would try a thermostat first, it just could be stuck shut causing the engine to overheat and build up to much pressure, therefore blowing off the rad cap. I certainly would look at this first before doing major engine repair.

I've had my car overheating for some time now. I've had 2 mechanic confirm it's not the thermostat, but they didn't go any further. They said when car over heated and when I filled with water the line...


If your malibu has the 3400 engine in it, it could very easily be the lower intake manifold gasket leaking. If there is exhause bubbling out of the coolant reservoir, it could be a head gasket leaking. Both are expensive jobs, so my advise would be to find a competent mechanic to figure out which one it is for sure before having anything done.

99 toyota corrolla hood latch is broken. Can't


There is a rachet right below the hood that you can reach from radiator grill.
Take a long thin screw driver, reach it and turn that rachet.
You will hear the "click" sound and the hood will pop open.

Basic mechanical experience is all you need. Remove the intake tube, fan, fan shroud, upper and lower hoses and it comes right out. I think you can do the whole job with a 10mm wrench and a phillips screwdriver. (Maybe a couple other tools, but no special ones.) Be sure to get a 1" core radiator and not the stock 1/2" core, for added cooling capacity.
