2. can i paint a baseboard radiator someone told me if i paint it the heat wont work wright is that true?

You can paint the heater, But do not get paint on the heating coils inside. The same is true for the cast Iron radiators. Paint acts as a insulation & slows down the heat.

3. Does it matter if the radiator hose sucks in any air from the coolant reservoir?

It will only matter in that it will take longer to suck in fluid to cool the engine when the enginge thermostat opens up at operating temperature. Here is the key : When your driving, the coolant gets hot, which will expand, 'pushing' water into the container. When your parked, the coolant will cool, which will 'vacuum' coolant back into the radiator from the container. So, you should not have any worries. Be sure to monitor the coolant leves to ensure that you at least have enough room for both expansion, and Coolant to be drawn in during cooling. -JimR

4. how do i flush out my radiator on my 1990 jeep cherokee laredo?

what you did was plugged it up using that stuff which does not work. Looks like you going to have to replace that heater core which has very small passage ways. Do NOT drain or flush. Instead for the time being you take the hose from the water pump that goes to the firewall,and put it back in the other side of the water pump from the hose that is returning from the firewall. This will keep for a while but you will not have a heater or a defroster. Maybe too cold and will fog up your window a winter time. Or you might go ahead and get another installed. The freeze plug is different story, that you might have to replace them off. It is might as well thing to do when one is bad more then likely to others are not far from behind. I think for now until you get the money and need a car, just disconnect heater and use a wash cloth for your frosty windows. And of course a couple of blankets. A heater that plugs in the cigarette lighter works good too. I always carry one in the winter time, just in case

5. Replaced thermostat in 96' jeep cherokee, coolant overflowing out of radiator with cap off?

The reason that the water shot back out of the radiator is ,because that's when the thermostat opened and the water went into the engine block where it was hot and it caused it to shot back at you. You should have wanted until the water had stop coming out then finished feeling it up. Look at that thermostat housing and see if it has a bleeder valve on it or beside it, so you can remove the air from the engine.

6. Should I worry about the small crack in my Jeep Wrangler radiator?

Your friend is way too optimistic. If the radiator was pressure tested and it leaked - you can bet the farm it's going to leak when you drive it. If it's a small, minor leak, just be sure to check the coolant level often and keep it topped off with a 50/50 antifreeze mix. The price of a radiator is not worth risking the price of an engine - keep the cooling system full.

7. B13 engine w/ radiator problem help me please!!?

You should never run a car without the thermostat. The problem you describe could not come from a thermostat problem. You blew your head gasket, between a cooling passageway and a cylinder and now you get engine compression pumping into the cooling system and filling the cooling system with over 100PSI and the system is designed for about 16PSI. You need to get your head gasket changed.
