    I want to swap out the factory radiator hose(2piece) to some aftermarket ones. I want to know what the steps are so nothing goes wrong after the installations. Like over heating due to air in the system.

Just run the engine for a good amount of time after refilling the system with fluid, the air will automatically go to the reservoir and you will need to refill it as the system takes fluid out of the reservoir. Just make sure that you buy the fluid mixed or mix it with water correctly and you will be fine. This is a simple thing to do on any car and if you have any other questions, please let me know. Just don't forget to reclamp everything.

Hi there

What you must do is the following:
You will obviously drain the radiator before connecting the new pipes, once the new pipes are installed, just fill up the radiator as you would normally do it, when you do this the air that is in the hose will flow right out of the pipes because the water is heavier than the air so the water would "Chase" the air out of the pipes.

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.

Sounds like you need to test battery. If the battery is good, find the fusable link (if there is one) in the battery cable. Also verify your ignition isn'tr shorting out.

Scion tc overheating


let the car cool down. feel radiator with coolant.start the car with a/c ON.the fan will tun ON if not the fan or power to the fan is a problem.
if the fan is good monitor the upper radiator hose for building high pressure before the hose is warm(cylinder head gasket is bad)
if the car don't overheat with a/c on(radiator fan switch is bad)
monitor the temperature to about 180*F-190*F and the lower hose will start to warm up. if not thermostat is bad.replace with fail safe one
good luck

My scion tc is leaking coolant under my feet


The rubber plug will be to drain out any water that is under the carpet and so prevent the floor from rusting out. As to water getting there check out the heater core /hoses for leaks and check out the AC drain hose for blockages and ac condensate overflowing out of the box and onto the floor.

My scion TC keeps overheating, why?


I would check all hoses first, then best ting to do is have an compression test done to rule out a head gasket, if this is good may again be a hose
