I dont make any money off of it and the idea is to try to make fixing your car even more affordable, so put it to good use!!!
ChrisFix, your videos have helped me through a ton; I started working on my families and my neighbors cars for them when it's needed and I always tell them if I can't figure it out I'm sure Chris has a video on it. So let me watch it and then I'll fix it.
Chris like the video, I have one question. What brand or model is that torque wrench you show on your tool box and you used it to mount the radiator. It looks like it's a 1/4 drive 8 " long wrench ( small size)
Again and Again, Thanks for your videos. I dont need to change my radiator, but I enjoy all of your videos anyway, and I learn a lot of stuff. I'm moving to my own house soon, and I will be able to work on my cars... I'm hoping for that day for years.... Chris, question (hope you read this) I saw in all your videos your globes, seems to be great quality, any brand/model to recommend? THANKS
Chris i do not recommend using the old hose clamp, they lost their clamping force once you open them and take them off the hose, i've done tests on that particular matter because i work in a lab for the automotive industy, so once you take them off, i would recommend using a worm clamp to replace the old one. You can have trouble later on due to the pressures in the engine because the joint (hose-fitting-clamp) can pull out
No sabía que ya podía ver el video con subtítulos en español súper bien Chris 👍🏻 saludos 🇲🇽 entiendo el inglés pero que bien que la gente que no sepa lo pueda ver en español, tus videos son muy interesantes y e aprendido a hacer muchas cosas con tus videos gracias
One thing about the radiator sealer, some engines have bypasses to let a small amount of coolant through so that theres still some coolant flow even with the thermostat fully closed. That stuff will clog that passage way and cause issues.
Just an FYI Chris, most coolant fluids nowadays are manufactured with bittering agents in them just in case animals or children attempt to taste or drink them.
Not that I'm saying it's an excuse for lack of proper safekeeping or disposal, its just another preventative measure.
But obviously in your case, you wouldn't have to worry about that because you pay attention to safety above all else.
Love the videos brother, I'm an auto tech out here in Las Vegas.
Chris if you see this my mechanic installed a new radiator today, I’m seeing some steam but upper opening the hood there is no leaks my mechanic said it’s gonna be some coolant on the frame or in the bay from the old one that was leaky and it should be fine soon. Am I okay?
Hey Chris I have a 97 Dodge Grand Caravan se with a 3-3L engine I have a question what is the hose called that crosses the upper radiator hose and it goes all the way back to where the blower motor resistor is what is that hose calledI wish I could send you a picture but if you know what I'm talking about can you tell me what hose that is so I can replace it because part of it is missing from the connection the other part has a clamp on it and the holes came a loose from the clamp but the rest of it from the connection at the top by the blower motor resistor is missing what is that called for that make and model car please what is that hose called
Hey just a little tip to go along with switching out the hose clamps to stainless steel worm drive clamps is to wrap a layer or two of electrical tape around the end of the hose where the hose clamp sits to prevent the clamp from digging into and possibly damaging the hose
i have replaced the water pump, radiator, all temp sensors, 2 thermostats and even the cooling fan but i still have this problem.
my temperature drops to around 70 degrees celsius when i drive on an open road. when im stationary with the engine running or in stop and go traffic my temperature stays perfect at around 90 degrees celsius and the fan turns on when needed. What could be wrong, im running out of hope. car is a 1993 fiat panda 900.
Hi Chris, i had a small accident with a rock and guess what my radiator was leaking so i bought a new one then i found the metal piece holding it is also damaged so i bought it also but i found out that it is being attached without any screws but they are pressed together maybe a machine dis that anyway i removed it and put screws so my question do you have any workarounds for situations like this where metal welded or pressed together without having to drill holes and use screws?
My car is a Peugeot 206
Love your videos and how you put them together but they just aren't very good as instructional videos. You spend about 45 seconds on the idler assembly, AC compressor and water pump when in reality this is where most of the work is and it has to be done right.
The radiator on the truck looks to be part plastic, the bad part as newer cars and parts are made they are making most parts out of plastic because it's cheap but the point is plastic gets weak and breaks in a short time, think about it for a moment, back in the older days like the 1970's and 80's most cars had more metal and not much plastic and most of those cars are still around with parts that my have lasted 20 years, newer plastic stuff of today might last 2-5 years before needing a replacement, in short plastic will break down faster then metal because plastic degrades and gets brittle from being in the weather, I remember something my dad said many years ago, (in the old days cars were built to last, today's cars are meant to last a short time so you have to go buy another one every 2-7 years.)
One more thing, I have a friend that he changes cars about every 2-4 years because they cost more to fix then to replace them as he said but my car is from 1980 and it still runs and drives great. But I know, what can one do when the car companies make cars cheap and mostly plastic, fiber glass and aluminum cars meant to be junked after a few years, not much unless you get a classic car that was built like a tank back in the day. sorry about a small rant lol, any way great video man your awesome, keep up the good work. :)
Awesome video Chris!! i am replacing my 97 grand marquis radiator right now at 11:30 p.m lol You are such a natural at this, voice and all. Very clear and easy to follow...ok breaks over for me. You answered a few questions i had so thank you very much! How about a ball joint and suspension coil video?
Tristan N I’m no mechanic, but when your engine gets around 95-100F, your thermostat opens to let the fluid circulate through the radiator to cool it down and thusly cool down the engine so it doesn’t overheat and get damaged. I’m sure there is a better explanation on google that can give you a better answer.
Man, you give me the confidence to do my own repairs. Been thinking of getting a car and your channel has given me some tools that will help along the buying process as well as if I encounter issues along the way- great job as always! Appreciate your insight and step by steps to diy

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
