FRIST THING IS TO BUY A HOSE THEN GET A PAIR OF PLIERS AND A SCREW DRIVER AND THEN TAKE OFF THE OLD HOSE FROM THE RAD THEN AT THE MOTOR PUT THE NEW HOSE ON AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU GET THE CLAMPS GOOD AND SNUG

Optra is leaking fluid from somewhere and is overheating, how can it be fixed


Have you checked all the hoses? Next time it heats up, open the hood, or look underneath and see where its coming from!

After it runs for awhile it starts leaking antifreeze coolant


If you can't see any obvious leaks around rubber hoses or radiator, it could be leaking though the engine block gasket into engine. Or even escaping through the rad cap when hot, leaking as steam slowly. Try putting a new radiator cap on (rad cap). As a quick fix, put Radweld solution into coolant. Any auto shop has it.

We had the radiator relplace and antifreeze is still leaking on the back side of the engine. They told him it was going to cost another hundred dollars to take a look at the leak. I see three hoses leading...


Sounds like the leak's in the hose from the engine to the heater core - radiator uninvolved.
the hoses from rad are (2) upper & lower hose to/from engine, and 2 smaller hoses to/from the
transmission, to cool the tranny fluid.

Strange Coolant leak


this most likely means that you have a leak in a hose somewhere between your engine and the radiator, when you open up the rad cap it lets the leak breath causing it to gush out, go to napa and buy a replacement radiator hose it shouldn't cost but a few dollars and that should fix your problem.

Need to add transmission fluid to a 2004 Chevy Optra


It is annoying when people automatically assume there is a dipstick and that we are all dipsticks for not knowing. There have been a few cars that have come out on the market in the last ten years or so that have no dipsticks for the automatic transmissions. I also have the same issue with a slow leak from the line coming out of the rad. There is a spot on the front of the transmisson behind the rad hose where you can put in fluid. When you remove this bolt, fluid should come out..if not then you need to add some. To add it jack the front of car and using a funnel add some fluid until it pours out when the car is level. This may take several attempts. If you over fill it just let some drain out into a pan until your at a trickle then put the plug back in. This is the only solution I was able to come across for this. It seems to be a common issue with these cars as it the problem of the lines rusting out and into the radiator making it necessary to replace the lines and rad,

Trying to replace thermostat on 2004 dodge stratus. the upper rad hose comes up from the rad to the engine, the rubber rad hose meets up with a metal hose. behind the metal hose looks like the thermostat...


I wanted to change my thermostat too because I thought it was faulty. Come to find out my system was just vapor locked. TO fix it I just poured antifreeze directly into the radiator (not the overflow) and ran it with the cap off for a minute.
