no, I got a brand new radiator for a STS at a radiator shop for 140.00. shop around and replacing the radiator isnt too bad usually and you will save alot of money if you buy a chilton or haynes and do it yourself. Park it where children and unwanted people dont have access to your car. thats a strange place for a radiator to burst out of the blue. If you have to drive it in an emergency leave the radiator cap on to the first click or loose, but not tight. dont drive it at all if you dont have to.
good luck..

Remove radiator cap.Remove radiator bung from bottom of radiator and drain into container.Replace bung.Replace new 50/50 water/antifreeze mix.Turn interior heater up to max with fan on lowest setting.Run vehicle until hot, topping up radiator as required.Replace radiator cap when bubbling ceases. Road test vehicle, return and recheck level after cooling down period.Recheck level over the next few days and check for any new signs of leakage in system.(Fresh introduction of antifreeze can reduce the tension of the water molecules and can produce new leaks)

Why is my 1999 grand am still overheating the temperature guage goes to 260 degrees far to fast i already replaced the water pump and the upper raditor hose. my car still leaks antifreeze and i have to...

we cant say where its leaking because we cant see it for one thing. if it leaks the system pressure is not high enough to keep it from boiling.maybe the thermostat is stuck shut? maybe your radiator cap doesnt seal or is defective and doesnt hold pressure.

I got a 2000 dodge durago and i smell raditor when i am at the light i just got a new one installed is there a problem with my truck

open the hood and inspect for leaks. if you smell it, theres a leak. check radiator hoses,caps on radiator and plastic overflow resevor . a flash light may help find a small leak as the hoses run into dark places. the place that installed the radiator may not have done a good job. the caps should be checked with cold engine and the hoses with hot engine. donot remove caps when HOT. good luck

Where does antifreeze go

Antifreeze goes into the radiator. There should be both a radiator cap and also an overflow reservior. Top off the radiator and fill the reservoir to the "max fill" line. NOTE: DO NOT remove the radiator cap when the engine is warm. You'll get burned

2003 saturn ion adding antifreeze every 2 weeks cannot find leak

There should be a radiator cap as it controls what goes into the overfill tank. You might consider replacing it. If there are no leaks in the radiator or hoses, there are only 3 places the coolant can go (water pump leak, blown gasket, or out throught the radiator cap). Hope its the cap because that's the cheapest. Good luck!

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.

99 Chev suburban 5.7 liter, antifreeze keeps leaking have to fill reserve and radiator evryother day, (new radiator) no white smoke, oil looks ok, cant see leak anywhere on the ground or frame??? Wheres it...

check the condition of the reserve tank and the hose from the reserve tank to the radiator for leaks if no leaks there have the Radiator cap presure tested . also this could be a air lock in the engine if the radiator is new with the engine running and the heater on hot observe the fluid level in the radiator with the cap off if it drops as it warms add more coolant this will purge the air .
