How to remove a radiator 03 Mercury Mountaineer 4.0 engine V6 I checked the hoses they're good, but small drops of fluid is coming from the bottom of the radiator looking like it coming from the hose


What is the problem exactly?
If the radiator itself is not the source of the coolant leak why do you want to remove it from the vehicle?

You will certainly be able to locate the leak if it is from the radiator unit itself and in that event you will need to replace it.

If you have a leaking radiator hose or the hose is too loose on the bottom radiator neck then you replace the hose or tighten the hose clamp if it is the adjustable type.

If the radiator hoses connected to the radiator are the 2003 originals then they will definitely be well passed their use by date and should be replaced in any event.

I have a 1981 Jeep CJ7 (Straight 6). When my jeep is running there are no leaks, but as soon as i turn it off coolant leaks from the metal pressure hose coming from the steering box. The leak is coming...


The metal hose would not have coolant in it if it connects to the steering box. That would be a power steering hose with power steering fluid. If coolant is leaking, it must be from the radiator. New radiators are not all that expensive, keep your ride good with a new radiator, or have a radiator shop seal the leak, clean and pressure test the old radiator. If any rust is in the radiator just replace it, or you will soon have new leaks.

RAdior is leaking badly what do I do? One of the hoses seems to be broken, and seems like a huge leak on the bottom??? Need help asap contact me at downloadkris4free@hotmail.com


  • Turn off the engine as soon as you suspect a leak, to prevent the engine from overheating.
  • 2 Determine which radiator hose is leaking and exactly where the leak is coming from by looking for wetness.
  • 3 Purchase 1 gallon of antifreeze and the correct replacement radiator hose from your local auto-parts store or dealer. (Radiator hoses are not interchangeable. They come in specific sizes and shapes for your particular car model.)
  • 4 Wait for the engine to cool down for at least 20 minutes, before beginning any work on the cooling system.
  • 5 Place a large pan or wide bucket on the ground under the hose to catch the coolant.
  • 6 Use a screwdriver to loosen the hose clamps at both ends of the hose you are replacing.
  • 7 Remove the radiator hose by twisting and pulling where it connects to the radiator and engine. If the hose won't budge, use a utility knife to cut it off the fittings.
  • 8 Remove the hose clamps from the old radiator hose and slide them onto the new hose.
  • 9 Put the new radiator hose on. Spray the inside of the hose ends with WD-40 if the hose is hard to get on. Tighten the hose clamps.
  • 10 Refill the radiator and the coolant reservoir with a 50-50 mixture of water and antifreeze.
  • 11 "Burp the cooling system" by running the engine with the radiator cap off until the engine warms up. Keep the engine running until both the upper and lower radiator hoses feel warm (this indicates that the thermostat is open and the coolant is flowing through the entire system). Burping the cooling system allows any air bubbles to escape. Add coolant to the radiator as needed.
  • 12 Look for leaks. Inspect around the hose clamps for dampness. Tighten the hose clamps if there is any wetness.
  • 13 Put the radiator cap back on.
  • 14 Check the coolant level after driving, to ensure there are no leaks

    Car overheated and lost all power. how do I get it to start?


    ENGINE NOT GOING TO START IF GET TOO HOT FIRST THING I WOULD REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP THEN ADD COOLANT UNTIL COOLANT LEVEL CORRECT THATS WHEN THERMOSTAT OPEN UP AND TOP HOSE HOT.CHECK FOR LEAKING RADIATOR HOSES CHECK TOP RADIATOR HOSE CHECK BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE.CHECK FOR LEAKS AROUND THE RADIATOR LOOK DOWN BELOW COOLANTS FANS CHECK FOR LEAKS AT RADIATOR CORES OR LEAKS AT THE RADIATOR PLASTIC SIDE CONTAINERS. CHECK FOR LEAKS AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE AND CHECK FOR LEAKS AT THE HEATER HOSES AROUND ENGINE BLOCK TO THE HEATER CORE HOSES. THERE IS A REASON CAR OVERHEAT.IF CAR OVERHEAT WHILE DRIVING YOU HAVE FAULTY THERMOSTAT OR LEAKING OUT COOLANT OR BLOWN HEAD GASKET.IF ENGINE OVER HEAT WHILE SITTING DURING A LONG IDLING PERIOD.YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR OR FAULTY COOLING FAN FUSE OR RELAY.HOT WIRE COOLANT TO SEE IF IT RUNS IF NO REPLACE FAN MOTOR. IF YES FAN MOTOR COULD HAVE FAULTY WIRE OR PCM FAILURE. CHECK ENGINE CRANKCASE IF OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE ENGINE HEAD GASKET LEAKING.

    Leaking radiator from engine cooling line on top of radiator. is there any way to re-seal?


    Are you talking about the 2 inch water hose at the top ,or the overflow line about 1 half inch coming out of the radiator cap. If it is leaking from the radiator, replace the radiator, if it is coming out of the overflow, replace the radiator cap. If it is coming out of the top radiator hose then replace the hose

    Leaking radiator fluid where lower hose connects w/core


    Hi:

    If you have a leak near the lower radiator connection that just started, it is either a failed hose, or possibly a radiator core leak that is dripping down to that area.
    If you havent changed your radiator hoses for awhile, and they feel soft, it isn't a bad idea to change them both. If you drain your radiator to change the hoses, this would be a good time to inspect the radiator, and perhaps you will find the source of the leak.

    Tranny radiator leak


    If the leak is minor take it to a radiator shop and they can probably fix it for you for much cheaper than replacing it. Try tightening the hose, if it is leaking from the crimped end of the hose (where the hose mets the connector), then you will have to replace the hose. If you are getting green then its the actual radiator thats leaking and happen to be leaking trough transmission cooler vents.

    Radiator leak


    if you want to make sure you can put some soap bubles on the hose and see where the leak has actually taken place as a first step in diagnostic.

    just pour the soap on the top and you can see (not inside the radiator), once it blows then there is your leakage.

    either the radiator itself is the prob or the hose
