Question about 2000 Chevrolet Astro

1 Answer

I have water in my radiator right now and I need to drain it to clean it and fill it with antifreeze. The bottom of the radiator is covered so I can't see a drain plug from underneath. I've tried feeling around the radiator from the top with my hands and can't seem to locate it.

If you cannot locate the plug, simply remove the lower radiator hose.

Hope this helps.

How to change my engine coolant in a 1992 ford ranger-v6 3.0 engine, with what kind of coolant and how much of it


Hello again Vicki, you can read my first post to you on type. Now for where and how. Put suitable container under radiator drain valve. Start to drain old antifreeze, you can also loosen radiator cap for faster drain, but make sure antifreeze doesn't start to spill all over your driveway or garage floor. When radiator and engine are mostly drained, I would recommend to change the thermostat. Follow the top radiator hose down to the engine. This is where you'll find the thermostat. Remove the attaching bolts and remove thermostat.If you wish to flush your engine,you can put water down the thermostat hole as well as the radiator cap hole, or you can do a fancy flush. Shut drain below, reinstall thermostat housing without thermostat, fill radiator with fancy flush cleaning solution and water replace radiator cap ,run for time stated on can of flush. Now you go back to where I began and start the draining again. Dispose off antifreeze correctly it is dangerous to animals if they ingest. Close drain,and fill engine with antifreeze thru thermostat housing, when almost to top install new thermostat and gasket. fill radiator almost to top, start engine, open inside heater and let engine warm to operating temperature. At this time the antifreeze level will drop, because thermostat will open, and you can fill some more .This should eliminate any possible air bubbles. Fill your coolant tank. I would like to know how you make out. GOOD LUCK.

Heat gauge goes up to red, water, anitfreeze and poil all right. only goes up to top when heater is not running


When the heater is running you increase the flow of hot water providing more opportunity for it to cool down. You may have a blockage in one of the hoses or in the radiator core. A radiator flush may take care of the problem. Try the flush before proceeding with anything more costly.

How would you change the antifreeze


On most Jeep radiators, the drain is near the bottom of the right side radiator tank and usually difficult to reach and, most don't work right. I generally remove the lower radiator hose at the radiator. It does the same job, quicker and easier. Don't do this when hot, and be ready for a lot of antifreeze to drain fast. Re-fill slowly with engine running and heat on high. Make sure to wait for level to drop when thermostat opens, then finish filling and topping off.

RADIATOR IS RUSTED!


a radiator flush chemical may be a bad idea if the radiator is rusted up inside.drain out as much as you can, fill with distilled water only, then idle the car till it is at full operating temp. then drain the water and do the same thing one more time. after that, fill with your 50-50 mix of antifreeze/water and that will be about as clean as you can safely get it.
