Bypassing Heater Coil

Hey Leigh.
The firewall is the big thing that separates the engine from the cabin,, its the thing the dash is bolted to. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TAKING THIS TO A RADIATOR SHOP/AUTO REPAIR SHOP, tell them your story, and then ask the them how much they would charge you to cut and splice the heater hoses. The hoses run through the firewall somewhere in front of where the passenger sits, the hoses run from the radiator... then have valves and connectors in them. you will need some type of female to female connector and two hose clamps..YOU MUST do this when the engine is COLD.. you don't want to attempt this with HOT antifreeze!! This is not something you can do without a fair amount of knowledge about how automotive A/C and heater systems work.. Once you can identify the correct hoses... it won't be could actually bypass ALL the valves and connections.. Find the two hoses that come from the radiator and splice them together when you find a length of hoses that will facilitate a connection loop.. please rate as helpful..

I need to replace the transmission inlet lines on the radiator. Where can I find these?

There are as far as I know, no hard lines from
the trans to the radiator avail

The repairs at the radiator end, can be done
by removing the rubber hose furrels and replacing
the rubber hose and using clamps

If you have a vehicle with special radiator connectors,
as on some fords,there are parts for the disconnects

I need to change my radiator in my 98 jeep Cherokee. Can I change it myself or do I need to take it some where? I don't know how hard it is.

It's not difficult, but before you do you might invest $15 and buy service manual. Autozone, Advance, any good parts stores carry Haynes or Clymers manuals. Both give great step by step and tools needed to do the job correctly.

I plan to replace the Thermostat housing when replacing the thermostat and upper radiator hose. Questions: - Should sealant be used between the thermostat housing o-ring and the engine sealing surface? If...

no sealant should be needed.clean both surfaces sure 'o' ring stays in place & thermostat is installed'll probably only fill the hose as the thermostat will be closed,but that won't hurt.keep proper level in over flow tank,it will bleed air out itself in a day or 2

1997 Nissan Pickup 4 cyl radiator replacement

Basic mechanical experience is all you need. Remove the intake tube, fan, fan shroud, upper and lower hoses and it comes right out. I think you can do the whole job with a 10mm wrench and a phillips screwdriver. (Maybe a couple other tools, but no special ones.) Be sure to get a 1" core radiator and not the stock 1/2" core, for added cooling capacity.
