I replaced thermost and fan still running hot


The car is old enough for the radiator to clog. Get a flush kit to the car(at any auto parts store) and a bottle of flush. Flush the radiator out. If it won't flush out. You may need to go to the radiator shop and have them rod the radiator out. It beats the price of a new one. The build up chemicals in the water and coolant, clog the vents inside the radiator. I hope this helps,

HOW DO I FLUSH RADIATOR


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 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!
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!

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.

Need to flush out radiator. radiator is very dirty.want to know if the plug to flush out the radiator is on the bottom of radiator


the plug to drain is at the bottom. to flush corretcly, you need to take it to the shop where they can use a machine, so it fluches the entire cooling system.
