Radiator in 1984 300zx

I am trying to replace the radiator in the car but it looks like the whole front end of the car has to come off to do it. I have the radiator unhooked from everything. Do you know how to get it out? Thanks

Maybe a little late, but you have to pull both fender liners so it is easier to get to the 3 nuts that hold the bumper to the fenders. There are 2 bolts that hold the bumper to the frame, one on each side underneath. There are 5 bolts that support th bumper to the reinforcement bar. It helps if you remove the air filter box. Once you removed the air filter box you need to remove the other 4 bolts from the second hood latch. The bumper should be ready to remove.

Replacing a radiator 2002 concorde


If memory serves, you need to remove the whole fascia (basically the front end of the car) It's not difficult, just time consuming. There are about 12 or so bolts of various sizes that need to come out, along with popping out a few plastic pins. The headlights also need to be removed to allow removal of fascia. ( just the two 7 mm bolts on top, and assembly will be loose. I don't think they need to be taken all the way out, just loosened)
A/C condenser is bolted to front of radiator, making the removal of the radiator the hardest part of this job. Almost forgot, fan assembly needs to be removed also. Tranny cooling line removal also difficult. Mine didn't have the additional oil cooling lines, but some do. Hope this helps!

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.

The plastic column at the end of the radiator has a hole in it. can this be replaced individually or am i stuck having to buy a whole new radiator?


Radiator shops can replace the plastic radiator tanks, but it's usually a better bet to replace the radiator with a new unit. Not too much difference in cost, and with a new unit you know that the cores are not plugged or corroded etc.

I have a 1990 GMC Sierra SLE V8 5.7 that overheats while idling


hi, it does sound like you should look into checking the radiator for flow. also, you must have a fan shroud, make sure if you don't have one, get one. this could be your whole problem, but if you do have one, you could also have and air flow issue in front of the radiator in between the condensor. you probably should check this first, remove the bolts on the fan shroud which bolt into the support and pull the radiator foward away from the condensor slightly and look with a flashlight to see if dirt and debris, leaves have clogged the airflow. if this is the case, obviously you should correct. but if it is free of clogging, see if you can get your hands on an infrared temperature gun(tool) and start the engine and let it run for about ten minutes or until hot, take the temp gun and check different points near the top and the bottom of the radiator core, not the tanks(the middle metal part, not the plastic). you have a crossflow style radiator so you should see temperature change from upper radiator hose to lower of about 20-40 degrees. but the problem area if there is one will be cold like 95-120 degrees when the rest of the radiator is showing well above 150 degrees. if this is the case, yes, you have a plugged radiator. and by my opinion should you chose to take it or not, if there is no dbris clogging airflow, you probably have a clogged radiator.

How to replace 2001 Jeep Cherokee radiator


There is a removable radiator support brace at the top.There are 4 nuts that hold it on. One of them also holds the battery retainer on so you need to remove that as well.You also need to remove the coolant recovery bottle transfer hose from the brace. It is sometimes a good idea to remove the fans too as they are close to the rad and they can damage the rad if you touch the fans.If I forgot something just post me back..

Over heating


Well sometimes its the small things that count and on my grand am it took several mechanics to figure out the overheating problem. Under the bumper and between the grill/radiator are rubber flaps that hang down (to keep dirt from flying up from the road). Sometimes the plastic tabs don't hold them on or they rip from deteriating and hang down in front of your radiator. There was a small tiny piece of it hanging in front of my radiator causing it to overheat very badly. Took like 5 mechanics to notice this. No joke but i have replaced the seals and all but in the end it turned out being this problem. Very odd. You might wanna check into it. Look for anything that might be covering up the air circulation in front of the radiator and look very good because several people havnt noticed it. Wish i would have knew this before i started replacing gaskets and stuff.
