OK, turn the car off and use a screwdriver to remove the lower radiator clamp and drain it out there into a wide mouth container that holds a few gallons of fluid.

Then, you can replace the lower radiator hose, and fill with a 50/50 solution of radiator fluid (coolant/antifreeze) of your choice (brand wise).

This method is very good for getting a lot of fluid out quickly since the lower radiator hose is rather large compared to just opening the petcock if so equipped.

Ok, I replaced the radiator in my 95 Isuzu Trooper and of course had transmission fluid leakage, I filled the transmission fluid back to within specs however now the transmission will work great in first...

double check that trans fluid level with the car running at normal temp really just sounds like it is still low assuming youve not had any trans problems now if there was over heating issues with car it is possible damange was done to the trans

1997 chevy cavalier is overheating?

when your car is off and has been sitting a while open the radiator cap and see how much juice you have in there and note the colour, if your low fill that ****** up. could be your thermostat, maybe its stuck shut- take it out and boil that ****** on the stove in a pot if it opens(moves) when your pot is boiling then moves back after its cool, then thats fine- note you will have to put another gasket and some seal then more radiator fluid when you put it on. maybe its been years since your changed your radiator fluid- some people never change it at all.

Note the colour of your radiator fluid as if you have oil mixing in that ************** you have a bad head gasket or cracked head (major problem and BIG BUCKS) no stop leak in a can can fix that- check your oil colour if its chocolate milk sorry, same thing ^ cracked head, head gasket leak.

get a nieghbor over there and some beer and you all can probably figure it out. Good luck!!!

Bleed the clutch in my 95 cavalier

The bleeder screw is located on the transmission slave cylinder housing. (Follow the hose from the clutch master cylinder) This is not a bolt, but a bleeder screw that has a fluid passage through the center to allow fluid to exit during bleeding.
An assistant needs to pump the clutch, then hold the pedal to the floor. Open bleed screw, tighten and repeat. Good luck

have you try changing thermostat that causes it to overheat sometimes if you have a leaky hose get it changed i have a 96 corsica i had the same problem fixed hose changed thermostat still was overheating took to a radiator shop they tested it it ended up being that get it tested first if they tell you it is the radiator they are probably gonna charge you A LOT take your time and doit your self if you think you cant do it then once you know is that look around to see who charges you less.

Motor mount on 95 Cavalier

Depends on which one you are replacing? If you are replacing the upper one on the belt end of the engine, yes it's on the passenger side and it is fairly easy to change. You need to jack up the engine with a floor jack and a woodblock to change it.

My 99 cavalier keeps overheating it has coolant the hoses and radiator are not leaking and the fan is fine what should I check next???

check the radiator cap if the rubber seal is dry rotted or torn this will cause the radiator to not build pressure properly so the fluid can flow properly.also check to make sure there is no air in the system.please rate this

Need to replace Radiator on a 95 F-350 (7.3 l) turbo diesel,

if the radiator cools properly and engine does not overheat, I would probably change the antifreeze solution but not the radiator, does it leak? test its cooling capability by running the engine until the cooling fans operate. changing the fluids is a good idea, also lube driveline and suspension
