Sounds like a typical case of stuck hose to me. Sometimes it helps, if you are replacing the hose, to **** it with a razor blade and peel it off with a screwdriver....welcome to the world of auto repair.

No you can't cut and peel the hose because the end of the hose is fixed into a metal sleeve. dttech is talking about a normal hose connection that is just stuck after the hose clip has been removed. The mild steel sleeve rusts and then you cannot pull the connection apart, of course after first removing the stainless steel circlip. Only solution is to buy the new connector attached to a complete new hose. OR you can cut off the hose close to the metal sleeve and then with a mini grinder carefully remove the rusted end from the radiator without damaging the plastic stub pipe of the radiator. Then ask someone with a lathe to turn up an adapter with an 'O' ring incorporated that will push into the rad stub pipe. Then the slightly shortened original hose will push onto the adapter and secure with a normal hose clip. We have done this using solid nylon stock round bar. Seems to be coping with the temperature and pressure but we are still testing it.
If it proves successful then we may be able to make some more adapters for anyone else.
Even if you buy a new hose you still have to remove the old one in exactly the same way as described.

How do you put radiator in 1999 hyandai accent

1) Drain radiator by removing cap, and bottom radiator drain bung or bottom hose.
2) Remove top hose.
3) Disconnect the radiator fan's wiring and any temperature sensor wiring if fitted.
4) Remove radiator retaining clasps
5) Disconnect radiator bottom hose.
6) If fitted with an auto box, then remove automatic gearbox oil pipes (Underside)(you might wat to clasp these so they don't leak oil everywhere)
7) Remove radiator expansion bottle feed pipe from top of radiator.
8) Ease out the radiator. If the radiator fan is getting stuck or caught up, then drop the radiator back down and remove the fan first after disconnecting from the radiator body.
9) With new and old radiator placed side by side on a soft surface, change across any components from the old radiator, which didn't come with the new one. These may or may not include such things as: cap, fan retaining screws or clips, bottom radiator seating rubbers, rubber fan shrouding, temperature sensor, top and bottom rubber hoses.
10) Rebuild by reversing the above instructions. Apply silicone pipe sealant to top and bottom hose locations. Make sure you clean and/or replace any heavily corroded metal pipes which connect to the radiator. (Now is also a good opportunity to replace the thermostat to be on the safe side)

11) Fill system with a fresh 50/50 water/antifreeze mix, flush out and refill expansion bottle. Just before you refill the system, turn the interior heater setting up to maximum heat, but do not start the vehicle.
12) Top radiator up to max. Gently massage the top radiator hose to help eliminate air from the system.
13) Once filled, start the car. Pay attention to the temperature. Keep topping up the radiator as bubbles come around the system and the coolant level drops. At the point no more bubbles appear, close off the radiator with the cap. Allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature. If the weather is cold you may want to hold the engine at around 2,500 revolutions to help build heat faster. Keep it running until the radiator fan kicks in, then let it idle for a couple of minutes.
14) Stop the engine and let it cool.
15) Once cool, open the radiator cap and top up again if level is low.

16) Road-test the vehicle. After returning check again for any leaks.

Running the car for the first few days after radiator replacement, check the radiator level and expansion bottle level every day for the first two or three days. This level may drop slightly as any trapped air pockets are pushed out while running. Also, it is possible that any small leaks may begin after adding fresh anti-freeze to the system. If you begin loosing fluid over these first few days, then re-inspect your work and run a cooling system pressure test.

My radiator in my 94 saturn sl needs to be removed and i need to put the new one in. I need to do it myself beacause money is tight. How do i go about doing it?

1994 Saturn SLx Radiator replacement

Tools Needed:
3/8" ratchet
10mm socket
10mm deep well socket
6" extension

1. Jack up car and support using jack stands.

2. Start by removing the air tube over radiator by pulling off the 2 small plastic clips attached over the radiator. There is also a sensor connected on the bottom right side near the airbox, so don't just yank it off.

3. Remove the airbox using the 10mm socket with 6" extension - there are three 10mm bolts holding it down - two behind the airbox and one in front.

4. Undo the clips holding the wires for the fan and o2 sensor, then disconnect the connector for the fan.

5. Undo the single 10mm bolt holding the fan to the radiator on the drivers side. Lift up on the left hand side and work the fan housing out at an angle. Careful of the A/C lines - don't force it. The wire clips may bind on the A/C lines, I removed the top wire clip and it made it easier to get out.

6. Remove radiator cap and drain radiator. Simply turn the drain plug on the passenger side and let it drain - it took about 10 minutes to fully drain for me.
7. Undo the two 10mm bolts holding the radiator brackets using the deep well socket.
8. Drain block - single 10mm bolt under the lower radiator hose / thermostat housing.
9. Remove upper radiator hose.
10. Remove Lower radiator hose.
10a. If you have an automatic transmission disconnect the cooler lines at this point, using a flare nut wrench. If you cannot get them off, you can remove them at the transmission side, and purchase new ones from the dealer. Plan on these not coming off, if the car is more than 6 or 7 years old.
11. Remove the two 10mm bolts (one on driver side and one on passenger side) holding the AC condenser to the front of the radiator. These can be a pain to get off - lift the radiator and condenser as a unit out of the rubber mounts to give you enough room to get a ratchet in there from the front, under the bumper.
12. Lift up on the right side of the radiator to let it drain the rest of the way (there will still be a little coolant left after you drained it.)
13. Install new radiator. You may need to remove the metal clips for the bolts off the old radiator and install them on the new one. Reconnect the two 10mm bolts holding the condenser to the radiator on the same way you took them off - this is a real pain. Reconnect the two 10mm bolts for the upper brackets of the radiator using the 10mm deep well socket.
14. Re-install the upper radiator mounts.

15. Install lower radiator hose. Now is a good time to replace the hoses. Use hose grease to make it much easier to get them on. It is also a good time to replace the clamps.

16. Install fan - be sure to re-clip the o2 sensor wire and fan wires, otherwise they may get caught in the fan. Re-connect the fan connector.

17. Install new upper radiator hose. Before you install this it is a good time to replace the ECTS if you still have the original plastic tipped one, it's easier to get to.

17a. Auto Transmission - reconnect the cooler lines.

18. Reinstall airbox, air ducts, re-connect the air temperature sensor.

19. Refill radiator. You will need to check the level periodically over the next few days and add as necessary.

Remove radiator from 1993 mercedes 190 remove radiator from 1993 mecedes 190E

First remove the fan shroud - undo the two clips on the left and right by pulling up. It should be possible to now ease the shroud upwards passed the fan. Drain the coolant (there is red valve on the right hand side lower corner of the radiator for this purpose) Remove the top and lower hoses. Un-clip the side panels that fill the gaps either side of the radiator aperture. Remove the two top clips, by pulling them upwards, that secure the radiator to the car body cross member at the front. The radiator should just lift up and out. Beautifully simple German design.
