There is no "radiator cap" on the Alero. It has a pressurized recovery tank (overflow bottle) integrated into the cooling system. Unlike other cooling systems where you can add coolant to the coolant reservoir when the engine is hot as there is no pressure in the reservoir, these tanks are at full system pressure and must be allowed to cool down in order to check levels and/or add coolant. This is the only place in the system that allows for coolant input.

You can drain the antifreeze at the radiator drain plug, which is located on the lower front of the radiator on the drivers side. If your model doesn't have the drain plug, then remove the lower radiator hose and drain. Make sure you have something in place to catch the antifreeze and always drain antifreeze after the car has had time to cool off.

Where is the oil filter located on a 2002 Aurora?

It's on the front side of the engine between the engine and the radiator and a little to the passenger side. Reach it from the bottom of the car just behind the shield.
If, you have the 3.5L it's internal. Remove the cap on the oil pan with an oil filter wrench and then replace the cartridge.

Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine. It should be located in a housing near where the hose connects to the engine.

Drain the antifreeze, follow top hose to bottom of engine. Bolts probaly come out from top, but will be under manifold, ouch, pain in but.

hope it works
