The battery may be bad and you proably had a nice spark when that happened. Have the battery tested and see if you get 12 volts across the terminals. ALWAYS when installing a battery put the positve side on first and then the negative side, this way that can't happen.

How do I replace a front suspension crossmember on a Chevy Silverado 2500 HD 4x4?


The actual crossmember is not very heavy but since it is bent, there may be other "stressed" portions of the frame.
- I would slack off the bolts to determine the effect before fully removing them. Also would measure betweeen the bolt holes on the replacement and the bolts on the vehicle. If the distances are different, some frame moving may be required. That could take some force.
- If the slack bolt position allows the crossmember to be wiggled easily, I'd remove it and work at getting the replacement installed.
WORK SAFE! Don't get under the vehicle unless it is on a hoist or on jack stands.

How to change radiator


Radiator REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Cirrus, Sebring Convertible, Stratus and Breeze CAUTION
Do not open the radiator draincock or remove the radiator cap when the cooling system is hot and under pressure. This can cause serious burns from hot, pressurized coolant. Allow a sufficient amount of time for the cooling system to cool down before opening up the system. NOTE: The radiator uses plastic tanks. Plastic tanks, while stronger than brass, are subject to damage by impact, such as slipped wrenches. Use care when working around these radiators.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with an insulator grommet, which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
  2. Remove the air inlet resonator.
  3. Place a large drain pan under the radiator drain plug. Drain and properly contain engine coolant. NOTE: To open the drain plug on models equipped with a 2.5L engine, use a 3⁄8 inch drive extension 3 inches (7.6cm) long and a 19mm socket with universal joint. The drain plug can also be accessed by removing the right front fog light in the front lower bumper fascia.
  4. Remove the upper radiator crossmember as follows:
    1. Remove the push-in mounting fasteners securing the front fascia/grille unit to the radiator support crossmember.
    2. Remove the mounting bolts securing the support braces to the bottom of the crossmember.
    3. Remove the bolts securing the crossmember to the radiator closure panel.
    4. Remove the mounting nuts attaching the hood latch to the radiator crossmember. Remove the crossmember from the vehicle. Fig. 2: Using a small flat bladed tool, pry up the center portion of the plastic front grille/fascia retainers, then pull them out 90903p02.jpg

  9. Remove the screw attaching the support bracket for air conditioning lines from the right side of the radiator. Remove the support bracket.
  10. Unplug the cooling fan wiring.
  11. Remove the air conditioning condenser mounting screws. Use care when working around the air conditioning condenser. Avoid bending the condenser inlet tube. Care should be taken not to damage the radiator or condenser cooling fins or water tubes during removal. It is not necessary to discharge the air conditioning system to remove the radiator. Fig. 11: Access to the lower radiator cooling hose (1) and lower left side A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners (2) is possible after removal of the left fog light 90903p12.jpg
    Fig. 12: Access to the lower transmission fluid cooler line (1) and lower right side A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners (2) is possible after removal of the right fog light 90903p13.jpg
    Fig. 13: Remove the A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners 90903p16.jpg
    Fig. 14: Unclip the A/C line from the cooling fan module 90903p15.jpg

How to replace a sway bar end links to a 94 intrepid



REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

The rear suspension on LH platform vehicles is a fully independent suspension. A stabilizer bar (also called a sway bar) is mounted in rubber isolator bushings and connects the rear struts through links. Note that the fuel tank must be removed to remove the stabilizer bar.

CAUTION OFF. The fuel system pressure must be relieved before disconnecting any fuel lines. Failure to do so may result in fire and/or personal injury.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove both rear wheels.

  1. Position a transmission jack under the fuel tank just forward of the crossmember to help support the fuel tank when crossmember is removed.
  2. Remove the four crossmember to frame rail attaching bolts. Remove the fuel tank.
  3. Remove the stabilizer bar to link assembly attaching nuts and remove the bar and isolator bushings as an assembly from the vehicle. Inspect the isolator bushings for damage or excessive wear and replace, if necessary.

To install:
  1. Inspect for broken or distorted retainers and bushings. If bushing replacement is required, replacement bushings can be installed by locating the split in the bushing, prying open and removing the defective bushing from around the stabilizer bar.
  2. Install the stabilizer bar and isolator bushings back into the vehicle as an assembly making sure bar is centered in vehicle so it doesn't contact other suspension components.
  3. Install stabilizer bar attaching link onto stabilizer bar. Install new link to bar attaching nuts and tighten to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).

Replace the sway bar bracket bolt with new after loosening or removing them. Only use original equipment bolts as replacements.
  1. Install the fuel tank back onto the vehicle.
  2. Position the crossmember on frame rails and install four mounting bolts. Tighten attaching bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  3. Remove transmission jack from under the fuel tank.
  4. Install the rear wheels and lug nuts. Tighten the lug nuts, in a star pattern sequence, to 95-100 ft. lbs. (129-135 Nm).
  5. Lower the vehicle. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  6. Pressurize the fuel system and check for leaks.
  7. Check and reset the rear wheel toe to specifications as required.

Starter wont start


If you or a friend are handy with things mechanical...get on line, perhaps ebay motors and look up a solenoid rebuild kit. Remove starter, separate solenoid from starter body. Pay attention to order of disassembly. Install 2 contacts one opposite the other. Plunger goes right in the middle. By simply looking at parts in the bag, it will be obvious what goes where. Installation is reverse of removal. Obviously, remove negative battery terminal before doing anything....PHB

Replacing radiator 95 Jeep GC


No it is not difficult to replace a radiator it can be done with basic handtools I would not suggest a used radiator, if at all possible spend a little extra now and buy one with the best warranty (lifetime) available although with a new one you are looking at approx $250 plus coolant. Here is the proper procedure for replacment
Grand Cherokee
See Figures 9, 10 and 11
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

0900c152800a9918.jpgFig. 10: Radiator upper crossmember assembly
  1. Eight clips are used to retain a rubber seal to the body. Gently pry up the outboard clips (2 per side) until the rubber seal can be removed. Do not remove the seals entirely. Fold back the seal on both sides to access the grille opening reinforcement mounting bolts and remove the bolts.
  2. Remove the grille.
  3. Remove the upper brace bolt from each of the 2 radiator braces.
  4. Remove the crossmember-to-radiator mounting nuts.
  5. Working through the grille opening, remove the lower bracket bolt securing the lower part of the hood latch or hood latch cable from the crossmember.
  6. Lift the crossmember straight up and position it aside.
  7. If equipped with A/C, remove the 2 A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting bolts which also retain the side mounted rubber air seals.
  8. If not equipped with A/C, remove the bolts retaining the side mounted rubber air seals compressed between the radiator and crossmember.
Note the location of the air seals. To prevent overheating, they must be installed in their original position.
  1. Disconnect the coolant reservoir/overflow tank hose from the radiator.
  2. Disconnect the upper hose from the radiator.
  3. Carefully lift the radiator a slight amount and disconnect the lower hose from the radiator.
  4. Lift the radiator up and out of the engine compartment, take care not to scrape the fins or disturb the A/C condenser if equipped.
If equipped with an auxiliary automatic transmission oil cooler, use caution during radiator removal. The oil cooler lines are routed through a rubber air seal on the left side of the radiator. Do not cut or tear this seal.
To install:
0900c152800a9919.jpgFig. 11: Radiator alignment dowels
  1. Lower the radiator into the vehicle. Guide the alignment dowels into the hoses in the rubber air seals and then through the A/C support brackets, if equipped. Continue to guide the radiator through the rubber grommets located in the lower crossmember.
If equipped with A/C, the L-shaped brackets, located on the bottom of the condenser, must be positioned between the bottom of the rubber air seals and top of rubber grommets.
  1. Connect the lower radiator hose to the radiator.
  2. Connect the upper radiator hose to the radiator.
  3. If equipped with A/C, install the bolts condenser-to-radiator mounting bolts.
