How do i change the radiator fluid?


Most radiators have a drain plug on the bottom tank the engine block also has a drain plug . Remove the radiator cap ,open both drains ,let all the coolant run out, if there is no radiator plug remove the lower hose , remove the heater demister hoses, with the heater control on hot flush out all the coolant from the heater radiator. with a garden hose, till the water runs clean, tighten the radiator plug or re fit the hose,put a garden hose into the radiator and flush out till the water at the block plug runs clean ,refit the heater hoses, refit the block plug, fill the radiator from the hose leave the cap off , If it has a overflow tank clean and flush it. start and run engine for 5 minutes top up radiator if needed . stop engine and drain out all water. most important that all old coolant is drained out, only buy the best coolant you can . If you make up your own use only distilled water. keep some to top up with never mix with another brand. Fill radiator with coolant top up over flow tank, run engine top up coolant as needed, refit radiator cap run for another 10 minutes check for leaks,

I'm having trouble putting my radiator back together in my 1990 VW Golf GL


It might help removing the battery. You might try installing the radiator and then the fan assembly. It may also help to remove the top piece that is mounted above the radiator, where the hood latch is mounted on.

How to replace the radiator fluid


- Make sure the engine is cold and not running.
- Drain the radiator fluid by opening the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator or for a better/faster drainage and cleaning, carefully remove the bottom radiator hose by first loosening the hose clamp.
- Open the radiator cap and water rinse/flush the radiator core via a garden water hose until you no longer see any dirty water coming out of the bottom hose (or drain plug).
- Flush the radiator over flow (plastic) container by overfilling it with your garden water hose.
- remove garden water hose, carefully refit the bottom radiator hose, tighten the bottom radaitior hose clamp, refit/tighten the radiator drain plug.
- refill the radiator with approved radiator fluid for your climate and also refill the radiator overfow tank to the indicated level..
- Refit radiator cap
- Start your engine until it warms up and check for any water or steam leaks. Refit and or replace any faulty hoses or radiator (regulator) cap!
It is not difficult and have fun!

I put oil into the radiator, what do I do?


OK no big deal you are not the first and you wont be the last.
First thing have you run the engine since putting it in the radiator if not good...iF YES then it will take a little longer. but dont worrie
Take the bottom hose off the radiator and turn the heater to hot let out all the water and some oil will come out but not much as it will stick to the sides of the engine and radiator etc .
Refit bottom hose and tighten up the clamp then remove the thermostat and refit the top hose Now fill with water to 3 " from the top Now add 2 egg cups of washing up soap suds to radiator refit cap and start and run till the temp gauge gets to 1/4 up and then turn off and let it cool down for 1/2 hr and drain again ,and do the same 2 more times .
them on the 3rd drain it should be clean water and refit hose and check all clamps and wash thermostat and refit (the same way it came out)
refill with either coolant or Antifreeze and with heater still on hot start and run and all will be OK..
Let me know how you get on RON

Spring lowering


Hi

You answered the question yourself there! You buy a set of lowering springs which suit your needs and fit them in place of the old springs.

I have known people actually remove the old springs and then cut them down to the required height before refitting them again, but I personally wouldn't recommend this practice unless you can get it perfect, because the springs not only have to be the same height, they also have to sit snuggly in their seats once they're refitted.

Very best regards
