How do i check and add fluid to my 2006 vw jetta

It will most likely be on backside of engine, drivers side is a good bet but could be passengerside also. Add fluid through the same spot you check it.

My 1987 nissan 300zx na overheats but ive replaced the water pump and thermostate

What about the cooling fan motor? If you run your heat will that prevent or slow down the overheating? When your temp gauge reads above middle, closer to the red, pop your hood and look at the fan attached to the radiator. Its should be running.

I need to replace my radiator im my 95 grand cherokee laredo and i cant figure out how to get it to come out

You have to remove the engine fan and radiator shroud and the also you have to unbolt the top of the radiator support and remove it. The radiator basically then lifts straight up, out of the jeep.

My power steering fluid is mixing with my radiator water and visa versa. what could the problem be?

It's most likely engine oil not power steering fluild and that's an indication of a blown cylinder head gasket. The gasket separates the coolant and oil ports in your engine. If not repaired in a timely manner, warpage can occur on the mating surfaces of the engine block from extreme temperatures resulting in higher repair costs.

Leaking radiator fluid where lower hose connects w/core


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.

How to replace the radiator fluid

- Make sure the engine is cold and not running.
- Drain the radiator fluid by opening the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator or for a better/faster drainage and cleaning, carefully remove the bottom radiator hose by first loosening the hose clamp.
- Open the radiator cap and water rinse/flush the radiator core via a garden water hose until you no longer see any dirty water coming out of the bottom hose (or drain plug).
- Flush the radiator over flow (plastic) container by overfilling it with your garden water hose.
- remove garden water hose, carefully refit the bottom radiator hose, tighten the bottom radaitior hose clamp, refit/tighten the radiator drain plug.
- refill the radiator with approved radiator fluid for your climate and also refill the radiator overfow tank to the indicated level..
- Refit radiator cap
- Start your engine until it warms up and check for any water or steam leaks. Refit and or replace any faulty hoses or radiator (regulator) cap!
It is not difficult and have fun!
