Hi
My name is Rod and I just joined. I am helping a friend working on his 1994
Fleetwood Broughm. We changed the radiator today and did not notice until we got it in that there is not a place to hook up the hose that comes from the plastic tank where you add coolant. We called the parts store and they said they do not use that fitting anymore and they have some sort of kit. What should we do plug the hose or leave it open? Or do we need to make them order the correct radiator? The place where the fitting was on the old radiator tank is blank on the new one.
Thanks in advance Rod

No help here, I have the same problem plus more. I need to know where the coolent line on the passenger side of the throttle body connects, can you help? As for your problem (and mine) I guess we have to drill the new radiator and connect the hose back to it, I am told it has to be hooked up for proper circulation!
Regards,
Frank.

Hi Frank
My friend went out of town for a few days. When he gets back I will see if I can find out where the line to the throttle body goes and take a picture if possible. Are there different engines for that model ? If so what engine do you have ?

hes right they dont use the hose any more. there was actully a tsb to block that hose in 94. The best thing to do is either get a resivoir tank from a 95-96 caprice, fleetwood, impala ss, or roadmaster and just swap it in . it comes with just the on hose. For the time being you can cut a piece of the old hose stuff a rubber cork in it tie a hose clamp around that thensilcone the inside. and just hose clamp the piece of hose back on to the tank.

soxx is correct, the extra hookup on the reservoir tank on 1994 vehicles only was deemed to be redundant and possibly cause problems, so you can safely block off this nipple with a short piece of hose, clamp, and cork of some sort (like a bolt).

mopar fever, there is a hose on the passenger side for an air breather to the valve cover, as well as the metal coolant tube that has a rubber connection to the driver's side. Please check out the link for TB bypass to gain some extra power and get rid of that passenger side tube.

maybe these pics will help you (I have done the TB bypass so coolant tube from underside of TB is moved to meta):
