How do I replace ther radiator in a 2002 Dodge Strarus


Start by using a clean drain pan placed underneath the radiator drain plug, use a 3/8" one foot length of rubber hose on the radiator drain plug and open the drain plug with the other end of the rubber hose in the clean drain pan, this way, if your coolant is clean, you can reuse it. Next, remove the bracket on top of the radiator, remove upper and lower radiator hoses, remove transmission cooling lines from the radiator, then remove the cooling fan(s). At this time the radiator should lift straight out. Check bottom core support and make sure it's straight across. If the bottom core support is bent, this is the best time to get a big ole hammer and straighten it out. I've changed many radiators because of parking blocks, parking blocks are not forgiving on these types of cars. Good luck, Gary

Where is the drain plug for the radiator


Should be a drain **** at the bottom of the radiator that unscrews out. It looks like a wing nut has been welded to a bolt on the end of it. Another way to do this is just pull off the bottom hose.

How do I get to the radiator drain plug? 2003 Astro Van


Great news for you, the best way to drain the radiator is to remove the lower radiator hose. The bad news is that OEM radiator came with no drain plug and you can have one put in after you remove the radiator to drill a hole and tap in a $6.00 radiator drain plug for NAPA auto parts. Good luck and hope this helps. this was a way for GM to save money by one less parts to have make, since most auto mechanic just remove the lower radiator hose to drain the radiator. Good luck and hope this helps. If your luck and your Astor does have one, you can find the drain plug on the lower drivers side of the radiator, engine side.
