How do i change the radiator fluid?


Most radiators have a drain plug on the bottom tank the engine block also has a drain plug . Remove the radiator cap ,open both drains ,let all the coolant run out, if there is no radiator plug remove the lower hose , remove the heater demister hoses, with the heater control on hot flush out all the coolant from the heater radiator. with a garden hose, till the water runs clean, tighten the radiator plug or re fit the hose,put a garden hose into the radiator and flush out till the water at the block plug runs clean ,refit the heater hoses, refit the block plug, fill the radiator from the hose leave the cap off , If it has a overflow tank clean and flush it. start and run engine for 5 minutes top up radiator if needed . stop engine and drain out all water. most important that all old coolant is drained out, only buy the best coolant you can . If you make up your own use only distilled water. keep some to top up with never mix with another brand. Fill radiator with coolant top up over flow tank, run engine top up coolant as needed, refit radiator cap run for another 10 minutes check for leaks,

Remove the radiator cap.
Remove the radiator drain bung from the bottom of the radiator.

Drain fluid into a container.

If no fluid present, then refill radiator and perform a system pressure check.

Once all fluid has been drained, and any faults repaired, then refil with a 50-50 water to anti freeze mixture.

MAKE SURE ENGINE IS COOL IF YOU GOING TO CHANGE TOP RADIATOR HOSE REMOVE RADIATOR CAP OR OVER FLOW JUG CAP IF YOUR RADIATOR DONT HAVE RADIATOR CAP FIND RADIATOR DRAIN PLUG.PLACE A CATCH PAN.OPEN RADIATOR DRAIN PLUG CATCH ANTIFREEZE. DRAIN HALF ANTIFEEZE IF YOU GOING TO REPLACE TOP HOSE AND DRAIN OUT ALL ANTIFREEZE IF YOU GOING TO CHANGE LOWER COOLANT HOSE TO WATER PUMP.WHEN DONE CLOSE DRAIN PLUG.PUT ANTIFREEZE IN A SAFE PLACE FROM PETS AND KIDS UNTIL JOB DONE. WHEN YOU REMOVE COOLANT REMOVE WATER HOSE CLAMPS THEN REMOVE RADIATOR HOSES PUT NEW RADIATOR HOSES AND CLAMPS ON HOSES TIGHTEN HOSE CLAMPS DONT OVER TIGHTEN. POUR ANTIFREEZE IN RADIATOR.CRANK ENGINE UP CHECK FOR LEAKS.CHECK COOLANT LEVEL WHEN THERMOSTAT OPENS ADD MORE COOLANT AS NEEDED.

My car is over heating. I changed the thermostate need to know were/ how to drain radiator correctly and refill


Drains are located on bottom of radiator, Some models dont have them and you simply remove lower radiator hose to drain. But if its full and still overheating? Id have a look at the water pump. They are known to fail and cause severe engine damage

Forester 04 Top radiator hose dilemma !


You really won't lose that much coolant in just changing the upper hose.
But, crawl underneath the front of the car, and somewhere along the bottom left or right hand corner of the radiator, you'll find a valve of some type. Either rotate/turn the valve, or pull and turn, to open. Be sure to have a clean bucket ready and under the drain while doing this, to catch the drained fluid.

Then remove the radiator cap to allow air in the top of the radiator and speed the flow. Drain only to a point in the radiator that is below the lowest point of the top radiator hose, probably the engine end. Close the drain.
Remove/replace the radiator hose. Pour coolant from bucket back into the radiator where the cap was removed. If it does not all go, then save.
Start engine and allow to warm up. As soon as you see the level drop (meaning the thermostat has opened) add more coolant, and continue doing so until no more coolant can be added. Replace the cap. Monitor the coolant reservoir and add coolant as needed to the appropriate fill line.
Do not store excess coolant where pets/animals could consume as it lethal such creatures.

I dont know how to remove the radiator drain plug on a 98 chevy malibu it looks like a rubber plug I dont want to break it help.


That may not be a drain plug. Look for a large rubber hose going into the bottom of the radiator disconnect that hose have a bucket or something available to catch your fluids so you may re-use it. make sure the car has been off for a few hours very hot and dangerous coolant will come out of radiator.

You can remove the drain plug in the bottom on the radiator.
You can remove the lower radiator hose. Since the vehicle is 10 years old you may want to inspect the hoses for replacement anyway.

) Make sure the vehicle is cool.
) Slightly loosen the radiator cap to release any pressure.
) Re-tighten the radiator cap.
) Place a suitable container under the drain point.
) open the drain.
) Re-loosen the radiator cap again.
) Allow to drain.
) REPLACE THE DRAIN PLUG.
* At this point the radiator can be fill with water and a radiator cleaning agent- run the engine - allow to warm up.
* Re-drain the radiator - .
) REPLACE THE DRAIN PLUG.
) Refill the radiator with water/anti-freeze.
) Dispose of waste fluid according to the local regulations. Some city dumps will accept it. Some parts stores may accept it. Do not pour down the drain or dump on the ground.
