  1. The 02-09 "How-To" and DIY Section
    Hi all. I'm replacing (or trying to) the radiator on my 05 TB LS 4.2 ext. The radiator is free but will not come out. The condenser wants to lift with it. Is there something I'm missing or do they have to come out together?

    I have a 2005 TB with 337,000 or so miles on it. A couple of weeks ago I noticed it wasn't shifting like it should and took it in for repair. The root of the problem was a rupture in my radiator which cross contaminated fluids with engine and transmission. Ended up replacing transmission...

    I have an '03 ext and noticed it running hot the other day --made it home ok but really freaked me out to see the needle go up that high! I went to add some coolant to the resevoir and notice that it was all landing on the ground under the vehicle and just splashing on the driveway -- not sure...

    2006 Vortec 4200 with 130,000 miles. I've been smelling Antifreeze emitting from the engine compartment when I exit the Envoy. I had the radiator flushed a month or so ago and it started after that. I decided to stop being lazy and opened the hood today and there seems to be a leak coming from...

    If this has been asked and answered, my apologies. Had to replace the radiator on a 2002 Trailblazer. Bought the radiator from Autozone (Spectra Premium). Got it installed and everything in place, then bam...the transmission lines don't fit. The GM tranny lines seem one size bigger than the...

    Hello, I have a 04 trailblazer with 130,000 miles on it. Last week I replaced my radiator and water pump and added a transmission cooler, because it has been running hot (over 210) it’s been doing this for the past 3 summers and I have previously replaced the thermostat and fan clutch and it’s...

    My Envoy started to have an overheating issue on my ride from Ohio, back to Maryland. I took it to my mechanic, and got the news I did not want to hear - it has a cracked radiator, it needs a new air-conditioning system, and my headlight that keeps going out, is due to a fuse that is burning in...

    Hi, recently my tranny oil cooler lines were leaking from the radiator ports, so I tightened the ports, but in doing so the ports punctured the oil cooler veins. This led to all my tranny fluid mixing with my radiator fluid. Ya that sucks....so now I have a new radiator and am in the process of...
