Yes ,

you have to care of that you must connect your rediator cap with your rediator,any how but you have to connect with some chain or fireproof nilone string

or you can do all this with care cause when you try this your car must have to cool downed otherwise your hands may burnout cause of heavy heat,

Radiators with plastic tanks suffer from splitting/cracked tanks on the older cars. Any coolant outside the radiator is an indication of failure and the radiator should be replaced with a new unit as repair costs almost as much as a new one. There is no need for genuine as the radiator manufacturers make genuine and non genuine to the same specs for around half the price. Any accredited radiator shop will have a unit for you.

Radiator exploded


Have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracked head. Replace the radiator and radiator cap. If you have plastic tanks on the radiator they have a habit of splitting when they get a bit old.

Hose not attached to anything? from rad overflow,


There should be a short small fitting just under the radiator cap that connects to the overflow container. If the end of the hose is decayed or split, try cutting it back first, or just replace with new if too short. Check your coolant level (check when engine cold) in the radiator and overflow container after repair--use 50:50 mix to replace lost coolant. Hope this helps!

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.

Even after replacing the radiator, thermostat and


The problem with overheat is due to poor coolant circulating. The main culprit is the Radiator. When the radiator is clogging up, coolant can't be circulating. The stagnant coolant inside the engine water jacket keeps absorb heat from combustion chambers having no way to dissipate the heat then the engine is overheated. You can test the water pump by removing the thermostat, then hooking everything back. Open the radiator cap, then turn on the engine to see if water flowing down to several small tubes inside the radiator. If water can't go down fast enough to cause over flow at radiator opening then your 90 Legend Radiator already got clogged up. Replace with a new radiator, not even a rebuilt one. Good luck.
