I need to replace a cracked radiator on a Saturn SW1. How do I remove, replace, fill and vent it?


You'll have to drain the coolant by disconnecting the bottom radiator hose. try and catch the coolant and dispose of it by epa rules (do not pour down the drain or on the ground), then disconnect the top hose.
If it has electric fans remove them. If not remove the fan shroud and you may have to remove the fan depending on space to get radiator out.
Then there'll be a couple (usually 4) mounting bolts holding it in.
Once out replace in the reverse order of taking out and make sure you change the rubber grommets from the old radiator to the new one or replace them.
If you want to flush the block do it before reconnecting bottom hose.
After all together and radiator topped up, start vehicle with radiator cap off and top up as coolant goes through the system until it starts to overflow a little then put cap on.
If is a newer model it may have a coolant bleeder valve which is usually located near/on the thermostat housing which you crack of while vehicle is running till coolant is coming out and not air.
If doesn't have a bleeder valve just check coolant again after you've gone for a drive in it then let it cool down. DO NOT remove cap while the car is hot.

How do i unclog the radiator on a 1998 Saturn sl?


Your car's radiator and cooling system needs to be clean to be cool. As time goes on, your car's radiator builds solid deposits that can clog the cooling system. A quick, inexpensive radiator flush which can be purchased at any reputable store (Autozone, Nappa, etc.) can keep the system in shape. It's important to change your antifreeze seasonally. Before you start your radiator flush, make sure you have everything you need. There's nothing worse than draining your radiator only to realize that you need to drive to the auto store for something! Make sure to clear up clogs or you may soon clog up your thermostat, water pump causing your car to overheat and/or heater core leaving you cold in the winter.
What you'll need to perform a radiator flush:

  • Phillips head screwdriver or wrench (whichever your radiator drain requires)
  • Cloth rag
  • Radiator Flush solution
  • Coolant
  • Funnel
  • Used coolant receptacle
*Be sure to let your engine cool completely before you loosen or remove the radiator cap. Hot coolant can be painful!
I hope this helps and good luck. Please vote and leave a message.

Trying to flush radiator, where is plug in block, or can I just take bottom hose off radiator, to drain all coolant.


go to auto zone/ O"rileys and buy a flush kit, it is a kit that allows you to cut, a heater hose and install a TEE with a cap on it, the cap end is also the hookup for a water hose, wait until the engine is cool, cut the hose install TEE, hook up water hose, remove radiator cap, turn water on low, crank engine and flush until water is clear, reinstall cap and your block,radiator is flushed, don"t forget to put in coolant
