Question about 2002 Pontiac Bonneville
I have been smelling antifreeze and noticed a crack in my radiator. My radiator is a dual coil compared to many singles and seems to be much harder to remove with many more connections than many of the videos and DIY information sheets. If anyone has replaced a Bonneville radiator, knows the process, or could tell me how long it may take to do it myself I would appreciate it.

You know where you insert the Gas Nozzle to Fill it up? That is the Filler Neck and it can Develop Holes that will release Gas Fumes.

On your van the solenoid is attached to the starter. If you can get a solenoid separate (i don't know if you can) then you will need to take the starter off and remove the solenoid (2 screws holding it on) and the wires (on red and one black i believe) pay attention to which wire goes where because you don't want to reverse it on the new solenoid.

Removal & Installation
On some vehicles, such as this 1998 model, remove the upper fan mounting bolts
Unfasten the upper radiator panel fasteners, then remove the panel
CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old. To avoid being burned, do NOT remove the thermostat housing cap while the engine is at normal operating temperature. The cooling system will release scalding fluid and steam under pressure if the cap is removed while the engine is still hot.
Unfasten the hose clamp and disconnect the coolant reservoir hose from the radiator neck
Disconnect the remaining hoses from the radiator
On some vehicles, you must unplug the coolant sending unit electrical connector
Use a flare nut wrench to disconnect the upper transaxle oil cooler line
