Take the top off the radiator expansion tank and lift front of vehicle. There should be a red drain **** on the bottom of the radiator-you'll have to remove underbelly pans to see everything. A flathead screwdriver or pliers should do the trick. Loosen it up a few turns and watch the coolant flow-it will be messy. If you don't have a draincock or can't find it, then just take the lower radiator hose loose and let it flow out. When filling, remember to mix your coolant/water ratio(about 50/50) and let vehicle run until reaching operating temp. Then cycle back and forth between defrost and ac low a few times to allow the coolant system to burp excess air. Then recheck level.

Engine oil leaking into coolant system on a 1997 mercedes benz c280


Have a compression test done on the engine to eliminate gasket problems . Check that the oil is engine oil and not transmission oil from a broken oil cooler in the radiator.. If you are sure that it is engine oil check that you have an engine oil cooler on the engine in which case it will be a gasket or corrosion in that unit.

Location of engine coolant temperature sensor


Automobiles: 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 4-cylinder 2.0L MFI DOHC

NOTE
The "left" side of the engine is the driver's side.

The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is a thermistor (a device which changes resistance or voltage as temperature changes). The sensor detects the temperature of engine coolant and provides a corresponding signal to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module - aka "the car's computer").

The ECT sensor is mounted in the following locations (small Ford engines):

1.8L engines: in the cylinder head
1.9L engines: threaded into the heater hose inlet pipe
2.0L engines: at the left rear of the engine

2.0L Zetec Engine

(1) Partially drain the engine cooling system using a clean container. If coolant is in good condition, retain for reuse.
(2) Disconnect the battery ground cable.
(3) Disconnect the electrical wiring connector from the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor.
(4) Remove the retaining clip and the ECT sensor.

Fig. 1 Escort ZX2 ECT sensor - The retaining clip is removed (at the solid arrow). Withdraw ECT sensor by gently wiggling/pulling in the direction of the dashed arrow.

To install:

NOTE
Coat the ECT sensor O-ring with clean coolant prior to installation.

(1) Replace the retaining clip and the ECT sensor.
(2) Connect the electrical wiring connector from the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor.
(3) Connect the battery ground cable.
(4) Refill the engine cooling system. An inexpensive plastic "Radiator Funnel" will help with this task.

How do i change the water pump on a 2000 dodge,grand caravan


Removing and changing the water pump on a 2000 Grand Caravan should only be done if your van has a 3.3 liter or 3.8 liter V6 engine. On any other engine types, including four-cylinder engines, you must remove the timing belt from the engine to access the water pump, which is a dangerous task that can mess up the engine if attempted by an amateur.
The procedure is as follows:------------- The water pump is responsible for sending the engine coolant to the engine.First of all remove the serpentine belt then remove the plastic cove on the passenger side behind the wheel. You will have to remove the pulley. Once the pulley is removed unbolt the water pump and remove it. Clean the surfaces and install new pump. Draining the coolant and replacing it is advisable.
Drain the engine coolant, twisting and removing the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator
-------------------Thats it.

96 Mercedes Benz C280 oil in the Water


Unfortunately, there's no definite answer.. It is most likely there is a crack somewhere. Either the crack is with a seal, or it could be a crack with the block itself...

Trying to change coolant


If drain is difficult to reach or won't open properly, remove the lower radiator hose. You can easily drain system from there. Make sure you use a good drain pan and that the engine is cool. Once removed coolant comes out really fast from there.
