I am trying to replace the radiator and I am having problems seperating the air conditioning (I guess you would call it the ac radiator) from the cooling radiator. I have already taken the two bolts out on the top and bottom but it wont seperate them.

What you have and are attempting to do is seperate the A/C condensor from the radiator. They are most usually bolted together. You need to keep looking to find where they have been joined, sometimes the bolt will almost be hidden.

Sorry, the question is so vague and all encompassing.
My initial response, and not to be curt, is remove the lower radiator hose and drain the coolant (if there isn't a petcock elsewhere on the radiator), remove the upper radiator hose, disconnect the automatic transmission oil cooler pipes (I would cover them with tinfoil and rubber band or cable tie the doubled tinfoil), remove the bolts holding the radiator in place and replace it. Other problems such as electric cooling fans for the engine may have to be removed, but you'd have to look at the car and see.
IF you have a seperate coil (1 coil only) check for correct voltage for the coil as most start on 12 volts and run on 7 volts and have a resistor in the circuit. Randomj misfire may be the coil breaking down as it gets too hot from the incorrect voltage
the resovoir hold pressure its not uncommon to find them like that .. but before it overheats put your hand on the upper and lower radiator hoses and feel for them to be flowing ... i guess if they are different its a thermostat...not opening after 180 f ...
I just had my coolant flushed and my radiator cooling fan replaced. The car was slightly overheating and would "gargle" in the coolant bowl after I turned the engine off. It turned out to be the radiator was clogged up on one side.
I went full tilt and replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, radiator cap and timing belt. I have 85,000 miles on the car and it was about time to do these things anyway. It is running like a new car now.
