If it's getting it off that's giving you the trouble, I would buy a new clamp and take some tin snips to the old one. A note of caution tho, putting it back on may be a job too as the Grand Prix is a bit cramped.

Help diagnosing a leak in my radiator system.

Hello Jeremiah, I agree you have a leak. The best way to find your leak is to use a cooling system pressure tester. Your leak could be as simple as a loose hose clamp or as complicated as a leaking water pump or a leaking head gasket .

Is there a special way to add coolant to the Grand PRix

I assume it's a V6, I know from working on Fords and when we would refill the radiator on a V6, we would take the upper hose loose from the radiator and back fill it that way. Hope this helps

Radiator leak

The hose that attaches the upper pipe on the driver side could be crack over the clamp could be loose. Loosen the clamp completely and remove the hose from the radiator. Check the hose for cracks and if there are any replace the whole hose. If not, replace the clamp. Remove the old clamp and get a new one that is the exact size or very similar. place the clamp on the hose, install hose back to radiator and tighten. If this does not solve your problem have the vehicle checked out by the certified automotive technicain.
