Default 2 Questions; radiator line wrench size, stop leak.

I was wondering if anyone has the size of line wrench needed to remove the radiator from an 02' Cruiser (non-turbo). Question number 2...has anyone used anything in their motor to seal up the head gasket for a temporary amount of time (if they even make anything)? Also (I guess 3 questions); is it ok to drain the freon yourself or do you really need a "mechanic" to drain it?


I found oil in my coolant; my oil was WAY too full and smelled like coolant...I'm guessing 100% sure that I'll be changing the head gasket soon right? A friend that is a mechanic said not to jump the gun and it might be soemthing else...any ideas?

Unless you inadvertently added coolant to the engine ...

Don't continue to run the engine in this condition.

Ha-ha! No coolant was added to the engine.

Didn't plan on running the engine any longer...really starting to get it from both ends; one end is from the car having more shit broke with it than I had hoped for and the other end from the wife being impatient.

Any idea on the specific line wrench needed for the radiator?

Line Wrench ... are you talking about the Automatic Transmission Cooling lines???

I have a standard in my 06 so I can't really check and the kids 01 with Auto is many miles away so I can't check, just trying to figure out what you are asking for so someone else can just answer you.
