No you don't have to move any of that you need a "crow foot" type oxygen sensor it looks like a short brake line wrench that you can put a 3/8 ratchet on it with an extension. This will help you to get this sensor out. Good Luck

SOURCE: transmission fluid dripping out of bottom center of radiator

Before you remove the radiator, check the transmission line connection's at the passenger side. There should be two, one at the top ( in ) and the bottom ( out ). There are only in place by a quick release and see if which line is leaking and replace the line or the O ring that seals the line to the radiator. Good luck and hope this helps. The transmission cooler only runs down the ends of the radiator. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

SOURCE: Dissassemble of Radiator

Instructions
Things You'll Need:

  • Resealable container
  • Wrench
  • Replacement hoses, if necessary
  • Replacement radiator
  • Engine coolant
  • Distilled water
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable before you begin the process of replacing the radiator. Then, remove the plug on the underside of the radiator and let the engine coolant drain into a resealable container.
  2. Remove the upper radiator hose and lower radiator hose. Inspect the hoses, and if they need to be replace, this is the perfect time to do it. Unfasten all of the bolts with a wrench, securing the grill reinforcement panel, and take off the panel.
  3. Unhook the transmission cooler lines, along with any electrical connections. Take off the radiator mounting support bolts, and remove the radiator support. Remove the bolts holding the radiator in place, and lift out the radiator.
  4. Slide the new radiator into place, and tighten the bolts according to specifications. Reattach the radiator support and the radiator mounting support bolts.
  5. Reconnect the electrical connections and the transmission cooler lines, and replace the grille reinforcement panel. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  6. Fill the radiator with a mixture of half engine coolant and half distilled water, pouring slowly to avoid excess air.
  7. Start the engine and let it run for several minutes with the cap on very loosely to bleed air from the system, then top off the engine coolant mixture, if necessary. Replace the radiator cap securely.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
  • Don't waste good engine coolant. If the coolant is clean, it can safely be reused. If you're unable to reuse it, take it to a garage or a hazardous waste facility for proper disposal.
  • Be sure the engine of your Jeep Grand Cherokee is completely cool before replacing the radiator because the hot liquid and steam can cause serious burns. Put a thick towel over the radiator cap and open the cap very slowly to allow any steam to escape. It's also a good idea to wear gloves and protective clothing.
  • Remember that cats and dogs are attracted to antifreeze, which can be fatal if ingested. Clean up any spills as soon as they happen.
Also, can review the service repair manual for 1995 Jeep XJ Cherokee (Section 7 Cooling System)

I hope help you with this (remember rated this help). Good luck.

Are there any tricks or important steps I need to know about when I replace my radiator in my 99 Mercury Mountaineer. It's a V8 5.0. The last radiator I replaced was on a mid 70's Ford pick up.


tho only difference would be the electrical connections for the radiator fan (your 70's truck had a belt), it is pretty much the same thing and probably somewhat easier. Drain it first, then you'll need to remove the trans lines, hoses, the top support, bolts that hold the radiator to the frame and the attachments of the fan to the radiator-it shouldn't be a hard job, the

Do not remove the cylinder block drain plugs or loosen the radiator drain **** with the system hot and under pressure. Serious burns from coolant can occur.

WARNING When removing the radiator or A/C condenser for any reason, note the location of all radiator- to-body and radiator-to-A/C condenser rubber air seals. These are used at the top, bottom and sides of the radiator and A/C condenser. To prevent overheating, these seals must be installed to their original positions.

Removal & Installation:
  1. Disconnect battery negative cable.
  2. Remove radiator pressure cap.
  3. For access to radiator draincock, remove radiator grill mounting screws and remove grill.
  4. Attach one end of a 24 inch long x 1 / 4 inch ID hose to the radiator petcock Put the other end into a clean container. Open petcock and drain radiator.
  5. Detach power steering fluid reservoir from fan shroud and lay aside.
  6. Disconnect electric cooling fan electrical connector, if equipped
  7. Disconnect CRS hose from radiator filler neck and remove from shroud retaining loops.
  8. Remove the four (4) viscous fan/drive assembly nuts from the water pump pulley and remove fan/drive assy.
  9. Remove the four (4) fan shroud to core support mounting screws.
  10. Remove the electric fan (if equipped) and shroud assembly from the vehicle
  11. Remove radiator upper crossmember.
  12. If equipped with air conditioning, separate radiator from condenser by removing condenser-to-radiator mounting brackets.
  13. Disconnect upper and lower radiator hoses.
  14. If equipped, disconnect and plug automatic transmission fluid cooler lines. Quick Connect Fitting Release Tool 6935 may be needed. If equipped with remote transmission cooler, remove line to cooler from bracket at bottom of radiator
  15. Lift radiator straight up and out of engine compartment taking care not to damage fins.
  16. If radiator is to be replaced, be sure to remove and transfer any components not included with replacement radiator.
7479d7e.gif

To install:
  1. The radiator is supplied with two alignment dowels. They are located on the bottom tank and fit into rubber grommets in the radiator lower crossmember.
  2. Lower radiator into engine compartment. Position alignment dowels into rubber grommets in radiator lower crossmember.
  3. If equipped with air conditioning, attach condenser to radiator with mounting brackets
  4. Install radiator upper crossmember and four mounting bolts.
  5. Install radiator upper crossmember-to-isolator nuts. Tighten nuts to 86 inch lbs. (10 Nm) torque. If isolator-to-radiator nuts had been removed, tighten them to 47 inch lbs. (5 Nm).
  6. Connect radiator upper and lower hoses.
  7. If equipped, connect automatic transmission fluid cooler lines. If equipped with remote cooler, attach cooler line to bracket at bottom of radiator.
  8. Install electric fan (if equipped) and shroud assembly. Insert alignment tabs at bottom of fan shroud into slots in bracket at bottom of radiator. Tighten mounting bolts to 31 inch lbs. (3 Nm).
  9. Connect electric cooling fan electrical connector.
  10. Install power steering reservoir to fan shroud.
  11. Install grill.
  12. Connect battery negative cable.
  13. Fill cooling system with correct coolant.
