Sorry, but I do not have a manual for your car. The radiator is unrelated to starting. If you are sure the fuel inertia swith is on, it could be almost anything. To begin troubleshooting, please follow the basic steps at the link below.

SOURCE: my son hit a curb and broke the right front axle

Find a used right front axle from a wrecking yard. I can't think of any other parts that would be needed unless you for some reason can't pull out the old shaft and have to open the transmission.

Side note: The force required to break a front axle is not consistant with "hitting a curb". Something more sinister has happened to this car and a front-end inspection would be advisable.

My dodge durango won't start. We first took out the old starter then put the new one in but the starter broke because we tightened it to much I think. Because when I started the car it broke. So I

Hello and welcome to fixya... Dilyn,

Nature sides with the hidden flaw...
More likely your REPLACEMENT starter was
already fractured (they are pretty stout/strong)...
((TAKE it BACK)).

If the VEHICLE has been sitting (is seized) ... PROPER
treatment would be to put a shot of PENETRATING OIL
into each cylinder... and allow to sit...
Radiator Specialty Co L104 Liquid Wrench Amazon com
(repeat as necessary: CONSULT on that)...
Only move by hand...!!

Assuming this is an OTHERWISE untroubled
vehicle (regularly used):

FIRST thing I would look for... is the real reason
the engine is not moving...

LIKE... mark all your wires... (cylinder number)
and remove the spark plugs... MOVE the engine
by hand. If so... RESTORE THE STARTER...
(no reason to OVER-TIGHTEN (excessive torque)).

WHILE you are THERE...

Check the oil & water for cross contamination...
If everything comes up roses... Put it all back together

Give it another try... Hope this helps.

93 Dodge Spirit hit curb Hit curb on back driver side tire. Nothing wrong with tire but right after I hit the curb, my car started to shake and slow down. It turned off completely when at a stop. Oil...

the smoke came from the spilled oil leaking onto a hot surface ( manifold) No problem there. The oil light coming on was probably from the oil surging away from the oil pickup in the sump momentarily allowed the oil pump to suck air hence a drop in oil pressure. To have all that happen, the hit on the curd was substantial. so I thinking bent axle flange and broken engine mounts could explain vibrations and engine shaking

I hit a curb and broke the racket pinion but replaced it and its making a squelching noise like the tires are squelching what could this be

If you hit a curb hard enough to break the rack and pinion, then you have also damaged some other parts in your front end. You need to take the car to an alignment shop and have it checked over. You could be looking at repalceing ball joints, tie rod ends, struts or even control arms. Hope this helps.

I hit a curd on the side of my rims i have 275 45 20 i broke 3 studs i replaced all studs and they broke again i do hear a noise everything the wheel turns faster i go the faster the sound and how much to...

If you broke 3 studs when you hit the curb then you can be sure that at the very least you have bent the rim, which will have to be replaced. At the worst you have bent an axle which will have to be replaced. You may have bent the rear end housing as well. This needs to go to a repair shop and be checked over to determine the extent of the problems. Don't put this off, it's very troubling that the studs broke again. Hope this helps.
