How do I put the water in the radiator?, where is the opening?


Should have a clear plastic tank on one side of the engine compartment with a cap. A hose runs from the top of the radiator to the tank.
The tank for the windshield washer has a snap on cap, the radiator reserve tank has a twist on cap.

How do you change the radiator on a 1996 Buick Skylark?


GM Grand Am/Achieva/Calais/Skylark/Somerset 1985-98 Radiator - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
A cross-flow radiator is used on most models. The radiators used on automatic transaxle models are equipped with oil coolers with inlet and outlet fittings for transmission fluid circulation. An aluminum-plastic radiator can be identified by the black plastic side tanks and aluminum radiator.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
  3. If necessary for access to the radiator, remove the air intake duct assembly or air cleaner assembly.
  4. On automatic transaxles, disconnect and plug the upper oil cooler line.
  5. Disconnect the engine strut brace at the radiator, loosen the engine side bolt and swing aside, if equipped.
  6. Matchmark and remove the hood latch from the radiator support.
  7. Detach the upper hose and coolant reserve tank hose from the radiator.
  8. Disconnect the forward light harness and fan wiring. Remove the electric cooling fan. On some models this may not be able to be removed unless the front end of the vehicle is raised and supported.
  9. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  10. Remove the engine cooling fan if not yet done.
  11. If equipped, remove the splash panel below the radiator outlet hose. Detach the lower hose from the radiator.
  12. If equipped, disconnect and plug the lower oil cooler line.
  13. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  14. If equipped with air conditioning, remove the radiator to condenser bolts. Unbolt the refrigerant line clamp. Do not disconnect the lines.
  15. Remove the mounting bolts and clamp, then the shroud (if equipped) and carefully lift the radiator out of the engine compartment.
To install:
  1. Lower the radiator into position.
  2. Install the mounting clamps and bolts, including those associated with air conditioning parts.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. If equipped, attach the automatic transaxle cooler lines.
  5. Connect the lower hose(s) and attach the splash shield if equipped.
If the engine cooling fan was removed while the vehicle was in the air, install the assembly and attach all electrical wiring.
  1. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  2. If not already done, install the electric cooling fan, then attach the electrical connector(s).
  3. Connect the upper hose and coolant reserve tank hose.
  4. Install the hood latch and strut brace.
  5. Fill the system with coolant.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable, then start the engine. Run the vehicle until the thermostat opens, fill the radiator and recovery tank to their correct levels, then check the automatic transaxle fluid level.
  7. Turn the engine OFF , then once the vehicle has cooled, recheck the coolant level.

It keeps running hot


Check the coolant level. If coolant drops frequently check for leaks especially on the hoses, radiator and on the water pump. Check if the fan is working by pulling the plug of the temperature sensor on the lower radiator hose. It should run while it is unplugged. Check as well the radiator cap for corrosion. A bad radiator cap would mean steam would escape the system.

How do you change coolant on a 2005 chevy silverado 1500


Open the hood, and to the right you will see a big thick hose connected to the top of the radiator, if you look down the right hand side of the radiator, you will see a thin hose with the opening facing up at you and it is connected to the lower part of radiator, where there is a plastic wing nut like plug, which when loosened, allows the coolant flow to come out of the small hose, but make sure that the hose is pointed down, into a 2 gallon bucket, then loosen. Also, nothing will come out unless you take the cap off your radiator reserve which is that square-ish looking container filled with orange dex cool (not green) coolant.
hope this helps you,good luck
