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

4 new radiators this year on my 2002 dodge caravan. What's going on??


Please clarify why your radiators are being replaced. Are these radiators being replaced by the same mechanic? If so, what is his reason for replacing them. Is your engine overheating? I can't even imagine having to replace four radiators during the entire life of the vehicle. Four in one year sounds very suspicious.

2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat


Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.

Dodge 2002 Grand Caravan V6 3.3 engine overheating/no cabin heat.


Replace the bad radiator hose first.  Second- get you special formulated anti-freeze dye from the auto store and pour it into the radiator.  Third- make sure you got all the air pockets out of your system, cause the coolant system won't work with air pockets in it.  Fourth- Check for leaks by looking for the colored dye.  If it's not the radiator hose, then could possibly be a pin hole in your radiator.  Would suggest replacing all the radiator hoses at the same time while you got the coolant system disconnected, cause you don't want to have to come back and replace another hose in a few months.

I appreciate the help regarding the Dodge ?2002? radiator fan relay switch, but I can?t find a replace part anywhere on the web. What I see is a replacement ?relay radiator fan? and nothing about a switch....


The device that turns the radiator fan on is a temperature sensor on the lower radiator hose towards the engine block. That could be the switch that you are referring to. When the coolant reaches a certain temperature it tells the radiator to turn on. The relay then sends the power to the fan.

Location of thermostat on 2002 dodge stratus 2.7 eng.


The thermostat on this car is located on the passenger side lower Engine block. Follow the lower radiator hose and it will lead you right to it. The Wheel and splash guarding need to be removed as well as the Alternator to gain access to the housing bolts. It about a 3 hour job to replace thermostat.
