I've been having over heating problems with my Prowler XTZ lately, and so I decided to try to get to the bottom of it. I called my dealer to see if he had a thermostat, as I was gonna change it first. However he told me look at the radiator and if I can't see a flashlight shining through it, then that's my problem, (it would be clogged). I have always washed it, but apparently it is really clogged, because I couldn't see anything. So he basically told me to take the radiator off and soak it in a tub of water over night. I've got everything loose and unhooked, however it won't come out due to the storage box under the hood being in the way. I know I'm gonna have to take the box off, but not sure where to start. Am I going to have to take the dash off as well to get to the bolts to the storage box? It seems like a stupid question, but I just want to make sure that I'm not doing any excess work. And maybe one of ya'll may know an easier way. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Sonny

Thanks for the advice, I've tried it, not working. I finally got it out, I ended up taking the hood off and then the front cap that the hood, bumper, and winch mounts to. So I took it off and have it soaking in a sink in my shop. I'll let it soak till after lunch, and change the water and let it soak over night. Thanks for the advice though. Sonny.

Well I soaked it last night, took it out and rinsed the rest out of the radiator fins and it looks pretty good. I put it back in and hooked it all up, started filling her up with anti freeze and noticed I've got a small pinhole in the lower part of the radiator. Put the cap on and it'll stop, take it off and it leaks again. I guess that's got to do with pressure or something. Anyway. Anybody know of a quick fix other than buying a new radiator?
