How do you remove the oil cooler on a 94 camry with the 4 cylinder


Do you mean remove the radiator? Most 4 cyl Camrys do not have an oil cooler. Details are here, p250

The plastic top tank of the radiator in Camrys can develop a crack when older. Look carefully in that area.

A cracked plastic radiator hose housing/inlet?


You can take the radiator to a radiator shop for them to replace it. That or replace the radiator. It would be cheaper to have it rebuilt by a radiator shop. this is something you can't repair yourself. The radiator has 35 psi in the system when the car is running. Being plastic, the side can be changed or replaced. If you keep running the car with the crack, you stand a chance of damaging the engine.

Radiator drain plug wont seal back up on my 05 dodge ram cummins


I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 and to fix this problem I removed the drain plug being careful not to damage the plastic housing. I drilled through the center of the drain plug so that I would not have to use force to get it out and crack the plastic housing. After you get it out you will see that there is a rubber washer that is used to seal the drain. NAPA sells a drain plug that will work to replace the stock plug. The part #605-1278 comes on a card that says for Ford/GM. but it worked perfectly for me.

Plastic radiator repair


I doubt you can actually fix it "yourself", but you can save lots of money by taking it to a radiator shop instead of buying a used or new radiator. They can replace the plastic tank for the bad side, but it is usually the drivers side because this is where the hottest water exits the engine and causes the plastic to crack. I removed the radiator myself and took mine to a shop and they repaired it for $40........cannot repair yourself because the tank has to be crimped on!!!! And radiator "stop leak" products will not work because they are for metal tanks!!!
