Two different types of clamps are used on GM radiator hoses.

Spring Tension Type
Screw Type

You may have to access the lower rad hose from underneath the vehicle if you cannot reach the lower hose from the engine compartment.

DTC P0753 1-2 Shift Solenoid Control Circuit - this code does not mean the shift solenoid is bad . It states control circuit , wiring , the driver inside the PCM , power to the circuit .
Install a scan tool.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Important: Before clearing the DTC, use the scan tool in order to record the Freeze Frame and Failure Records. Using the Clear Info function erases the Freeze Frame and Failure Records from the PCM.
Record the DTC Freeze Frame and Failure Records.
Clear the DTC.
Is DTC P0758 or P2761 also set?
YES - Go to Step 3
NO - Go to Step 4
Inspect the IGN 0 fuse for an open. Refer to Circuit Protection - Fuses in Wiring Systems.
Is the fuse open?
--
YES - Go to Step 12
NO - Go to Step 5
4
Use the scan tool in order to command the 1-2 SS valve ON and OFF three times while listening to the bottom of the transmission pan, a stethoscope may be necessary.
Does the solenoid click when commanded?

Go to Intermittent Conditions in Engine Controls - 4.8L, 5.3L, and 6.0L
Go to Step 5

Turn OFF the ignition.
Disconnect the AT inline 20-way connector. Additional DTCs may set.
Install the J 44152 jumper harness (20 pins) on the engine side of the AT inline 20-way connector.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Using the J 35616 GM terminal test kit, connect a test lamp from terminal E of the J 44152 to ground. Refer to Automatic Transmission Inline 20-Way Connector End View .
Does the test lamp illuminate?

YES - Go to Step 6
NO - Go to Step 15

This is a long diagnostic flow chart an I would think you do not have a scan tool . Your best bet is to take to a transmission shop .

it means that there is a problem concerning the engine or transmission and the ECM has placed the system in limp mode which is designed to allow you to get the vehicle out of harms way only
check water in the radiator, check for overheating, sump and transmission oil levels, drive belts, abs and tract control system
have the fault codes read to determine what cause the limp mode setting.

There is a spring loaded tension pully that needs to be depressed. I believe is has a 1/2 inch square socket female end on the front of tension pully that you can use a 18" or 20" breaker-bar to get leverage to reduce the tension. Reduce the tension remove belt and just reverse the process to install new belt.

There should be two bolts at the bottom and two at the top of the shroud to remove it. There should also be a diagram of the serpentine belt located somewhere under the hood or by the hood latch.

Only on a ford products & if you were in a crash,
you wouldn't be fixing anything,most likely scapping it

Why would you crank a vehicle, until you ran the battery down?

Now that may never recharge or last a week- if it is old

is it acually getting hot or is it just the gauge on the dash saying so? a quality scan tool can show you what the coolant temp sensor is telling the pcm it may differ from the gauge.
