Leaking bottom radiator hose

Yes, you can do it! First, just check if the clamp on the end of the hose where it connects to radiator is just loose and needs tightening. That may be all it needs to stop the leak. When your new radiator was installed, sometimes the clamp may not have been tightened enough. If the clamp is just like a wire clamp and can't be tightened, buy a good screw clamp and fit it on. If that is not the case, you may need to pull off the lower radiator hose to investigate. Of course, to remove hose, you need to drain the radiator first. The other end of the hose goes to an inlet fitting to the water pump on the front of the engine. It will also have a clamp that you loosen or remove to pull hose off that fitting.
How it works is hot coolant in the engine is pushed by the water pump into the upper radiator hose and goes down through the radiator for cooling it and then back into the engine through the bottom radiator hose. The water pump constantly circulates the coolant through the engine to the radiator and back into the engine through the lower radiator hose.
I would bet you just have a loose fitting hose. See if you can tighten it first.

When starting sounds like exaust is hitting body also when driving over bumps on road

Possible that the exhaust connection glands are worn out or the clamps are loose so that the exhaust is hanging down more than desired. Hence the reason that it is hitting on low ground clearance.
Please check from the underside, remove or tighten the exhaust clamps.

How to change radiator

Radiator REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Cirrus, Sebring Convertible, Stratus and Breeze CAUTION
Do not open the radiator draincock or remove the radiator cap when the cooling system is hot and under pressure. This can cause serious burns from hot, pressurized coolant. Allow a sufficient amount of time for the cooling system to cool down before opening up the system. NOTE: The radiator uses plastic tanks. Plastic tanks, while stronger than brass, are subject to damage by impact, such as slipped wrenches. Use care when working around these radiators.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with an insulator grommet, which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
  2. Remove the air inlet resonator.
  3. Place a large drain pan under the radiator drain plug. Drain and properly contain engine coolant. NOTE: To open the drain plug on models equipped with a 2.5L engine, use a 3⁄8 inch drive extension 3 inches (7.6cm) long and a 19mm socket with universal joint. The drain plug can also be accessed by removing the right front fog light in the front lower bumper fascia.
  4. Remove the upper radiator crossmember as follows:
    1. Remove the push-in mounting fasteners securing the front fascia/grille unit to the radiator support crossmember.
    2. Remove the mounting bolts securing the support braces to the bottom of the crossmember.
    3. Remove the bolts securing the crossmember to the radiator closure panel.
    4. Remove the mounting nuts attaching the hood latch to the radiator crossmember. Remove the crossmember from the vehicle. Fig. 2: Using a small flat bladed tool, pry up the center portion of the plastic front grille/fascia retainers, then pull them out 90903p02.jpg
      Fig. 3: To aid in a straight reassembly, matchmark the washer screws to the radiator crossmember using a marker 90903p03.jpg
      Fig. 4: Remove the radiator crossmember mounting fasteners 90903p04.jpg
      Fig. 5: Remove the mounting bolts for the hood lock latch mechanism 90903p01.jpg
      Fig. 6: Remove the radiator support crossmember 90903p08.jpg
      NOTE: The following step and associated photos describe original type hose clamps. Some vehicles may instead have a worm gear type clamp, which can be loosened with a screwdriver.

  5. Using pliers, compress the tabs on each hose clamp, then slide the clamp a few inches away from the hose end. Carefully twist and pull the hoses from the radiator.
  6. Disconnect the engine block heater wire, if equipped.
  7. Disconnect and plug the transaxle cooler lines, if equipped.
  8. Remove screw attaching support bracket for external transaxle cooler lines to the left side of the radiator, if equipped. Fig. 7: Relieve the tension from the hose clamp, then disconnect the upper coolant hose at the radiator 90903p09.jpg
    Fig. 8: If equipped with an automatic transaxle, loosen the hose clamp and disconnect the transmission fluid cooler hose 90903p14.jpg
    Fig. 9: Remove the mounting fasteners that retain the fluid and refrigerant line support brackets to each side of the radiator/condenser assembly 90903p05.jpg
    Fig. 10: Disengaging the cooling fan electrical connector 90903p18.jpg

  9. Remove the screw attaching the support bracket for air conditioning lines from the right side of the radiator. Remove the support bracket.
  10. Unplug the cooling fan wiring.
  11. Remove the air conditioning condenser mounting screws. Use care when working around the air conditioning condenser. Avoid bending the condenser inlet tube. Care should be taken not to damage the radiator or condenser cooling fins or water tubes during removal. It is not necessary to discharge the air conditioning system to remove the radiator. Fig. 11: Access to the lower radiator cooling hose (1) and lower left side A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners (2) is possible after removal of the left fog light 90903p12.jpg
    Fig. 12: Access to the lower transmission fluid cooler line (1) and lower right side A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners (2) is possible after removal of the right fog light 90903p13.jpg

Where is fuel filter located on 98 sidekick 4dr auto 4wd 4cyl?

1. Raise the vehicle. Check to make sure the supports are safe and secure. Take a drain pan and several clean shop rags to mop up any spilled fuel.
2. Crawl under the right side of the vehicle between the front and back wheels. Set the drain pan under the fuel filter to catch any fuel that drains from the lines.
3. Press the fuel line clamp tabs with a pair of pliers and detach the fuel lines from the fuel filter. Slide the clamp down both fuel lines away from the fuel filter while maintaining pressure on the clamp.
4. Note the position of the fuel filter inlet and outlet nipples before removing the fuel filter. Remove the lower clamp bolt and loosen the clamp adjusting bolt. Remove the filter from the mounting clamp. Lift the fuel filter out of the mounting clamp.
Install the Fuel Filter:
1. Work under the vehicle. Slide the new filter into its mounting clamp. Tighten the adjusting bolt until it's snug. Turn the filter in the clamp so that the inlet and outlet nipples are in the same position as before removal. Tighten the adjusting bolt. Put the lower clamp bolt in position. Tighten it securely.
2. Connect the outlet hose to the top filter nipple. Connect the inlet hose to the lower nipple. Push the fuel lines up over the nipples as far as possible. Compress the fuel line clamp tabs and slide the clamp up each line until it is secure over the nipple.
3. Position the clamps at least 1/4 inch from the connected end of the fuel lines, making sure the clamps are set over the nipples. Start the engine and allow it to idle. Check for fuel leaks and make the necessary adjustments. Turn the engine off. Lower the vehicle.
Oh and if you missed it, filter is attached with a bracket to a crossmember in front of the fuel tank on the passenger side.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.
