If what you say is true, your transmission cooler (normally found in the bottom of the radiator) has sprung a leak. This is a repair that you want to get fixed immediately. Both your cooling system and your transmission are compromised. Get if repaired before more serious damage occurs.

One of yor options is to remove the lines from the cooler, plug the cooler in the radiator (cap it off) and add an external cooler available at your auro parts store. Expect to pay around $100.00 for the new cooler plus connecting lines to the new location.

You will have to flush both the cooling system and transmission when you are done ... better yet ... save the mess in the drive and get a pro to do it for you.

Where is the oil drain plug on my 2003 buick lesabre?


Should be directly below the engine at the oil drain pan. It should be a larger drain bolt that screws into the oil drain pan.

The transmission pan may be next to it but won't have a drain plug. The transmission fluid pan has several small bolts that hold it on and the whole pan has to be dropped to change that fluid.

Good luck on finding hte oil drain plug for the 2003 Buick LeSabre.

Where is the drain plug on the radiator buick regal 2000


Many newer automobile no longer have a Radiator Drain ****. If you do have one it will be located near the bottom of one of the Radiator Tanks in the "Most Inaccessible place imaginable". All you need to do is loosen the Hose Clamp on the Lower Radiator Hose and work the Hose free to drain the system. Be careful not to damage the Plastic Radiator Tank in the process of loosening the Hose.

Want to change out coolent in radiator myself is it a wise choice


Things you will need:
Radiator coolant mixture (get from garage)
Radiator flush fluid (also from garage)
Distilled water (Or if your me garden hose water ;) )

Take off the radiator cap when engine is COOL. Find the drain plug located in the bottom of the radiator (normaly hand tight) and let it drain out into a catch container. Put the drain plug back in, follow the instructions on the flush container topping the radiator back up. Let engine run as directed on bottle and then carefuly undo the radiator cap using a rag as not to burn yourself. Then remove the plug again and drain out the flush fluid. Then repeat the process with the radiator fluid as instructed on the bottle.

How to change anti-freeze(coolant) on 2003 buick century


Hello, perform the following steps in this order:
NOTE: car should be cool, in park and on non sloped surface.
NEVER leave used coolant in an area where children or pets can gain access, Anti freeze has ethylene glycol which can be lethal to humans and pets. Used coolant should be immediately taken in a sealed container to a local state certified recycler for proper disposal.
1.Raise front end of car, and place one jack stand under frame of car on the inside of each front wheel.
2.Place a 2 gallon (low profile) bucket under the radiator drain plug. The drain plug will be located at the bottom of the radiator.
3.Unscrew the drain plug and let coolant drain into bucket. (It may be necessary to adjust bucket so no coolant leaks onto the ground.
4.After all coolant has drained from the radiator, tighten radiator drain plug finger tight, then 1/8-1/4 of a turn with a wrench.
5.Unscrew radiator cap and begin filling radiator using 50/50
premixed antifreeze solution.
6.Continue adding premixed solution until fluid is just below the top lip of radiator where cap fastens to.
7.Re attach radiator cap and lock into place.
8.Check radiator overflow reservoir and ensure coolant is between add and full, add coolant as required.
PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS SOLUTION IF YOU FOUND THIS INFORMATION HELPFUL.

Under the radiator on the river side or on occasion the passenger side there is a drain ****, turn it counter clockwise to drain the coolant, open the radiator cap before you do this, refill with long life coolant, this is what the car came from the factory with and is required when refilling system.
