I cut off the rusted out lines with a small tubing cutter andreplaced them with regular heater hose and clamped the ends. Coppertubing and hose clamps also work.
No, you will not have to drain all the coolant to change thethermostat on a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan. Only the hose that isconnected to the thermostat needs to be drained.
There is a "jug" or refill bottle on the passenger side of the engine compartment. It doesn't need to be completely full. Just make sure there is some in it.
The 2000 Pontiac Grand Am came equipped in a 2.4L 4-cylinder and3.4L V6. The service fill for the 2.4 is 11.1 quarts. The 3.4 ishigher capacity at 13.7.
If it's boiling..then it has a stuck thermostat and needs to be replaced. I would would replace it with a new one. Also.. Change the Coolant temperature sending switch (brass… lookin nut with wires going to it near thermostat housing).. this controls the on/off function of the electric fan attached to the radiator.. Further.. if changing the thermostat and switch doesn't work.. hook the electric fan to a 12 volt source (ie hook up to the battery) fan should turn on/off when it gets 12v
The radiator drain plug is located at bottom driver's side of the radiator. It has a black plastic flat handle about 1/2 inch across and a rubber tubing projects from it (to a…id in the discharge of coolant). It is best and most inconveniently reached from the bottom side of the vehicle. Facing front of vehicle and attempting to turn the plug from above, it is opened by turning it to right (lying on ground underneath vehicle, this would be the normal "turn to left to open" kind of valve.
