The lower rad hose goes to the water pump, as for the vibration it could be many things, tires, shockbushings, tie rods, ball joints, control arm bushings, you will have to investigate further

How do i remove radiator from my 2002 jeep grand cherokee overland 4.7 ho v8


On older jeeps, the upper radiator support is held by torx screws, T30, if I recall, but maybe T27.
Drain radiator, remove upper and lower hoses, disconnect transmission cooler lines, remove upper radiator support panel, and hood latch if necessary. Check for obstructions-radiator should be free to lift out. Funny that the radiator support and hood latch were both held by torx screws, but were different sizes.

  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 have a 99 grand cherokee wj. The upper radiator hose keeps leaking where it contacts the radiator. I have changed the upper hose two times and also replaced the clamps 4 times and I am still having this...


I suspect either the radiator neck has hairline crack. You can try product like "Bars Leak". It's a coolant stop leak that is fantastic. Not only is it a stop leak product but it's also a waterpump lube.

Where is the radiator drain plug located on my 1997 Jeep Cherokee Country 4X4. The only plug I have located is on the side oh the radiator and is almost impossible to get to.


You can usually get to it by removing the front grille. (just a few screws)
I usually ignore the drain as after you get to them, half don't work.
Fastest way of draining is to remove the lower hose from the radiator. It comes out fast so don't do it hot and have a catch pan there or you will make a mess. Most times you can get to it easily by removing the air filter box (two bolts inside bottom).

Oil Lead after new radiator and upper hose installation


It sounds like one of the transmission cooling lines is leaking, where they attach to the radiator. There may be a rusty section that was 'bumped' while the hoses were being replaced, causing it to leak. If the section that is leaking is not the fitting at the radiator, but a bit away from it, you can cut the section of tubing at the leak, purchase and slip a section of rubber fuel line over the bad area, clamp both ends with small clamps. Make sure the tranny fluid is at the proper level, don't drive it low.

Leaking radiator fluid where lower hose connects w/core


Hi:

If you have a leak near the lower radiator connection that just started, it is either a failed hose, or possibly a radiator core leak that is dripping down to that area.
If you havent changed your radiator hoses for awhile, and they feel soft, it isn't a bad idea to change them both. If you drain your radiator to change the hoses, this would be a good time to inspect the radiator, and perhaps you will find the source of the leak.

Leaking coolant


There are many possibilities. Look from the resevoir and there will be several hoses. Just check those for cracks, signs of wear or breakage. Its a matter of check all the hoses til you find the one with the crack. Also if the hoses are too old they will get dry and crack and will leak that way too. Hope it helps!

Automatic transmission - radiator line leak


The cooling system is pretty much self explanatory hoses go from and to the most obvious places...(you wouldn't try to stretch the lower hose all the way across to the upper hose connection). The trans cooler in the radiator can actually be connected either way. It is non-directional, being a simple coil inside the radiator tank. If you want to install an external trans cooler, that's a bit different...it needs to go on the outflow side of the radiator so it can further cool what the radiator has already cooled down. An easy way to find out which side is the return line, simply take one fitting off the radiator, remove the coil wire so engine dosen't start and "bump" the engine over till trans fluid comes out. if out of radiator nipple you are on the correct side, out of hose, install on other side. Leaking lines can be partially replaced using brass compression fittings made for this. Only use them on straight clean runs, not on heavy rust or bends.
