This is your drain plug. Put it back in and refill the system. If the plug will not tighten, get a new one.

Should radiator hoses be easy to squeeze


I have an older Chrysler Town and Country but I had the same problem, I found mine to be a leaking radiator, check all of your hose connections and if you have the flimsy plastic radiator in your van, get the more expensive aluminum version. The plastic radiator melts at the bottom because the are required to be grounded and sometimes this is not done properly, therefore sending an electric current through the radiator melting out the bottom, went through three of these before anyone let me know that they had to be grounded. If there are no leaks under your radiator or hoses, the next thing I would check is your cylinder head the burning smell could be dripping from your head to your exhaust. I would say you have a nice sized leak some where because with these vans if you do not have enough coolant in them they will not produce hot air fill your radiator up with more coolant and then test your heater, it should work but until you find the leak I would make sure to keep extra water/coolant inside the van.

Kia sedona emmits white smoke with brownish oil dripping at the exhaust .is it from head gasket or someparts in the engine?


head gasket yes, bc antifreeze is entering throught the oil ports or down throught the rings, if the water get to the oil it will wipe your bearing out

Antifreeze dripping from the gasket around bottom of engine


Sounds like a blown head gasket they were really bad for blowing. Check your dipstick if the oil is light brown or white or water on it its a blown head gasket. not a cheap fix

armor-all-tyn2.png
  1. Draining the Cooling System
    • 1 Locate the petcock valve on the lower right corner of the radiator and place a waste oil collection pan underneath it.
    • 2 Open the petcock valve by turning it counterclockwise, using needle nose pliers.
    • 3 Wait until all the coolant has drained out then close the petcock valve by turning it clockwise.
    Removing the Radiator
    • 1 Loosen the hose clamp that connects the upper radiator hose to the radiator using a Phillips head screwdriver. Then pull the upper radiator hose off the radiator.
    • 2 Loosen the hose clamp that connects the lower radiator hose to the radiator using a Phillips head screwdriver. Then pull the hose off the radiator.
    • 3 Unscrew the transmission cooler lines from the radiator (automatic transmission only) using a wrench.
    • 4 Unscrew the bolts that secure the radiator to the core support, using a socket.
    • 5 Lift the radiator straight up to remove it from the vehicle.
    Installing the Radiator
    • 1 Lower the radiator into position behind the core support. Be careful: the cooling fins are thin and can be easily damaged.
    • 2 Screw the bolts that secure the radiator into the core support. Tighten with a socket.
    • 3 Thread the transmission cooler line fittings into the radiator. Tighten with a wrench.
    • 4 Slide the lower radiator hose onto the fitting on the bottom of the radiator. Slide the hose clamp over the fitting and tighten with a Phillips head screwdriver.
    • 5 Slide the upper radiator hose onto the fitting on the top of the radiator. Slide the hose clamp over the fitting and tighten with a Phillips head screwdriver.
    • 6 Fill the engine with a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water.
    • 7 Run the engine and visually inspect for leaks.

I want to bleed the coolant system in my nc fairlane 5 ltr v8 can you help me please ?


Hi there,

Sure we can....

To avoid serious burns, allow engine coolant to cool down first.

Radiator Drain Plug:

Climb under the front of car and look for a 'see though' hole in the body/shroud (possible on driver's side).

You should see a screw plug, connecting to the botton tank of your radiator. Depending on the age of radiator, the plug will be either a WingNut type (undo by hand), or a 13mm hex bolt (with a phillips head) - you may need to use a long sock/extension to undo the plug, but ensure you do not overtighten as it's only plastic.

Note: if you simply cannot get at your drain plug, then just remove the bottom radiator hose as an alternative.



Cheers,

Antifreezes leaking from bottom of honda accord


If there is oil in it also its very bad. There could be numerous cause for this. Little and big. You need to narrow down where the coolant is coming from. Most of the time, with coolant leaks, it drips off the block, or the bottom of the radiator. It could be a cracked radiator, a clogged radiator, bad coolant line or lines, bad head gasket, ect. Where the coolant is coming from is necessary to diagnose the problem.

I need to drain the antifreeze where is the plug from the engine block


The textbook method is to remove the drain plug. Most drain plug is make of nylon/plastic and it may fall apart while you turn it.

The professional method is to loosen the lower radiator clamp and drop to lower radiator hose.

Drain the coolant onto a large drain pan and recycle the coolant

How change antifreeze in car raditor?


At the bottom of the radiator there is a plastic knob this is the petcock drain plug it can be hard to see and turn so you may need to jack up the front of the car a little to crawl under the front and look at the bottom of the radiator but if you can reach it from the top and turn it with a pair of pliers do so that way this will allow you to drain the radiator, remove the radiator cap if it has one to allow air to pass through radiator, if it has no radiator cap remove the cap on the radiator expansion reserve tank, after all antifreeze is drained turn petcock drain plug back in till tight then refill raidiator with 50% water 50% anti freeze mixture, start car and top off antifreeze run the car or drive for ten minutes then top off antifreeze.
