If you're not sure all the oil drained out onto the driveway, maybe there is a much larger issue at hand. Was your goal to destroy the engine..or? Sounds like BS to me. If you see a puddle of oil, you don't fire it up till you figure out the problem. BTW, you have given no real info aside from perhaps your new radiator isn't stock and doesn't have an oil cooler in it. Maybe you left the lines detached not knowing what they were, etc.

Wow that was a little harsh.....

Anyways the two steel lines on the driver side of the radiator are the engine oil cooler lines. And the two on the oopposite side are for the transmission cooler .. Yes you can do major damage to either running with out fluid. These van have a low oil pressure shut off to save the engine when ur oil pressure gets low. The only advice I could give you is hook up all the lines top off all the fluids and try to restart it . And hope for no damage.

You are right! My apologies. Welcome to the forum!

All are welcome here, even Firestone employees. :mrgreen:

That reddish sweet smelling stuff that leaked out of the passenger side of the radiator, that's transmission fluid. VERY vital to the health of your transmission.

The amber/brownish liquid that leaked out of the driver side of the radiator, that's motor oil. VERY vital to the health of your engine.

If you see either of these shooting or pouring out of the vehicle when the engine is on, it may be a good idea to turn it off immediately. If you see fluids on the driveway and the engine is off, it may be a good idea to check and make sure all connections are secured and the fluid levels are up to recommended levels.

Both the engine and transmission have drain plugs for a reason. I highly recommend seeking advice here if you are uncertain about anything.

I should think that just the privilege of gaining all that experience would be compensation enough...No ?
