Radiators are an easy job, did you buy the new one yet? Because a radiator shop can recore the old one, might be cheaper. They can also check it out. Is it metal or plastic? The plastic usually cracks. If you want to change it out, get a big pan under there and catch the coolant, when you pull the hoses of a cold engine, take the transmission lines off, and pull the clamp off the top, The fan shroud should lift right out, maybe a couple clips, the radiator will lift straight up. Drop in the new one, put on the hoses, clamps, tranny lines, etc, dump in the old fluid through a filter, You should be all set. Hope this helps.

Why does my car overheat when i stop.


check fluid levels in radiator, old radiator fluid flush system and replace fluid with new, bad radiator cap, bad thermostat, bad radiator hoses collapsing or you need to take your radiator to radiator shop or buy a new one. If you have electric fans make sure they are comming on when engine is at idle possible bad temp. switch on electrical fan.

How to Replace a Radiator in a Toyota Tundra car?


The instructions to replace the radiator is as follows:--
1) Locate the radiator. For that remove the engine undercover. Beside the radiator there is a plug.Loosen the plug on the bottom of the radiator and drain the engine coolant into tray or bucket.Also disconnect the hose to the radiator reservoir, and take off the upper radiator hose and lower radiator hose
2) Then to remove the radiator.Look at the fan shroud and remove the bolts holding the radiator. Detach the clips holding the fan shroud and lift the radiator carefully out of the engine compartment.
3) The old faulty radiator which you want to remove is out now.
4) Put the radiator bracket hooks in the radiator support holes and install the new radiator in the reverse method of how you removed the old one out.

I need to change a radiator clamp because its leaking


Unscrew or squeeze the old clamp and move it down the hose. Then, slide the hose off the radiator, slide out the old clamp off the hose, slide on the new clamp down the hose, replace the hose onto the radiator, slide the new clamp back to where the old clamp was located, tighten it down in place and refill whatever coolant leaked out during the process. Done.

I have a 2000 nissian altima GXE for which I have replaced the radiator once already and it is leaking again. Any suggestions?


When you replaced the radiator, did you flush the system and install a new thermostat? Also, did you replace the old radiator with a new one, or a re-manufactured one? Try flushing the system, install a new thermostat, and install a new radiator. If this happens again, it may be time for a new water pump.

Need to change radiator on 2006 ford explorer


THE EASIEST WAY TO REPLACE THIS RADIATOR IS TO REMOVE THE FREON FROM THE AC SYSTEM, DISCONNECT THE LINES GOING TO THE AC CONDENSER, REMOVE THE FAN SHROUD TOP AND BOTTOM, THEN REMOVE THE 13MM BOLTS ON THE UPPER PART OF THE RADIATOR SUPPORTS. REMOVE THE AIR DIFLECTOR ON THE BOTTOM OF THE VEHICLE, REMOVE THE AIR FILTER ASSEMBLY. LAST YOU NEED THE TOOL TO DISCONNECT THE TRANS LINES. ONCE THIS IS DONE THE RADIATOR AND THE CONDENSER WILL COME OUT IN ONE PIECE. AFTER THIS IS DONE YOU CAN EASILY REMOVE THE RADIATOR FROM THE SUPPORT.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE TOOL TO REMOVE THE TRANS LINES YOU CAN UNSCREW THE TRANS LINES FROM THE RADIATOR. YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE FITTINGS OFF THE NEW RADIATOR AND USE THE OLD ONES. ONCE YOU HAVE THE RADIATOR IN PUT THE FAN SHROUD BACK IN AND TIGHTEN THE BOLTS. THEN IF YOU HAD TO UNSCREW THE TRANS LINES DUE TO NO TOOL, REMOVE ONE OF THE FITTINGS OFF THE NEW RADIATOR AND SCREW THE OLD FIITING BACK IN AND TIGHTEN IT. THEN REMOVE THE OTHER TRANS FITTING AND SCREW IT IN USING THE OLD FITTING. DO NOT REMOVE BOTH OF THE TRANS FIITINGS ON THE NEW RADIATOR AT THE SAME TIME OR YOU WILL LOSE THE RESEVOIR IN THE RADIATOR. ONCE THIS IS ALL DONE EVACUATE THE AC SYSTEM, RECHARGE THE AC, FILL THE RADIATOR WITH COOLANT AND YOU SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND REPLACING THE RADIATOR, THERMOSTAT, AND THE RADIATOR CAP AT THE SAME TIME. I BELIEVE THE THERMOSTATS IN THIS VEHICLE DO NOT OPEN AS DESIGNED WHICH CREATES VERY HIGH PRESSURE IN THE COOLING SYSTEM WHICH CAUSES THE RADIATOR TO FAIL PREMATURELY.
AFTER STARTING THE VEHICLE CHECK THE UPPER RADIATOR HOSE AND MAKE SURE IT IS NOT ROCK HARD, IF YOU DID NOT REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT. IF IT IS ROCK HARD REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT.
THINGS TO CHECK:
CHECK THE RAD/CONDESER SUPPORTS FOR CRACKS YOU MAY FIND THEY ARE BROKEN IF THEY ARE REPLACE THE SUPPORT. IT IS AVAILABLE FROM FORD.

I have a pinhole leak in the plastic top of my 1994 olds 88 royale. Is this plastic piece replaceable or is it necessary to replace the whole radiator?


Any attempt at repairing a plastic tank on the radiator is just a band aide. This is just the starting signs of the radiator getting to the point where in is no longer reliable. A couple hundred dollars for a new radiator, give or take, will end up potentially saving you a lot of time and money in the future.

Fortunately for you the radiator is fairly easy on that one. A simple set of tools and some screwdrivers are all you will need to remove the old radiator and install the new one.

How do i change the thermostat on the four cylinder


If your talking that radiator Thermostat, trace the upper radiator line back to the motor. Where it mounts is actually an adapter plate that is bolted on with 2 to 3 bolts. Remove the Hose, Remove the Adapter from the motor and you should see the Thermostat under that adapter. Toss the old one and insert the new one. Clean the old seal off and put the new seal in place ind mount the adapter, tighten down, reconnect hose fill radiator and test drive for a block of 2 and then check for leaks. If you have any leaks at the adapter tighten the bolts a little more and top off the radiator.

Radiator leak how difficult is replacement at home


Replacing a radiator is pretty easy if you can hold a wrench.

All it usually takes are some socket wrenches, flat head screw drivers for the hose clamps, and a couple of buckets to catch the coolant fluid.

DO NOT dump the fluids down the sewer drain. I don't mean to be harsh, and I'm sure you wouldn't do something like that, just playing it safe ; )

Pull the old radiator, replace any old hoses that are worn, cracked, or leaking, and drop in the new radiator.

If you need to repace any old belts, now would be good time since the radiator and the fan are out of the way.

Takes about an afternoon and a 6 pack. Grab a buddy to help you out.

Good Luck
