Radiator differences in 95 Windstars

95 Windstar 3.8L GL (date 11/94): I recently replaced my radiator with one produced I believe a few months earlier, maybe 06/94. I noticed it has a port below the cap on the filler neck which points towards the right (looking from front of vehicle). The original rad only had the overflow port on the left.
1) What is the second port for?
2) Can I just put a hose on it and clamp it shut since my vehicle obviously has no connection for it?
Thanks,
David

If everything else is the same, I'd say that's all you have to do. I've never seen one like that.

Re: Radiator differences in 95 Windstars

I believe I've solved the mystery. As it turns out, when my friend pulled the rad, he removed the "plugged" termination that was already on it. I found it in the nuts and bolts box. Apparently, it had been a replacement rad in the junker we were pulling it from.
