That is a VERY easy radiator. Loosen radiator drain plug and drain coolant from radiator. Disconnect cooling fan connectorsRemove upper and lower radiator hoses after marking them to ease installation. For vehicles equipped with automatic transaxles, disconnect transmission cooler lines at transaxle. Remove air conditioner condenser fixing bolts and radiator bracket fixing nuts. Remove the radiator, radiator cooling fan, air conditioning cooling fan and transmission cooler lines from the vehicle as an assembly. Transfer all necessary parts (fan assemblies, cooler lines, clips, speed nuts, fittings, etc.) to the new radiator.
The radiator cooling fan is a variable speed electric motor driven fan. The radiator fan assembly includes an electric motor, fan blade, and a support shroud that is attached to the radiator. The radiator fan is serviced as an assembly (fan motor/fan/shroud).
The variable speed radiator fan is controlled by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) by way of a Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) signal. The duty cycle ranges from 30% for low speed operation then ramps-up to 100% for high-speed operation. This fan control system provides infinitely variable fan speeds, allowing for improved fan noise, A/C performance, better engine cooling, and additional vehicle power.
To control radiator fan operation, the PCM looks at inputs from:
Engine coolant temperature A/C pressure transducer Ambient temperature Vehicle speed Transmission oil temperature (automatic transmission only
Drain engine coolant
Disconnect radiator upper and lower hoses from radiator
Disconnect transmission cooler hoses (if automatic)
Remove overflow hose from radiator neck
Set coolant jug and bracket aside
Remove two 12mm bolts holding upper insulators on
Unplug electrical connectors for cooling fans
Lift radiator up out of vehicle.
Alternately, you can unbolt the two cooling fans from the radiator and leave them in. They are held on with four 10mm bolts. It is easier to leave the fans installed for a first timer though
I'm assuming you have an automatic trans. So the first thing is check the transmission fluid. To do this have car warmed up, idling, and sitting level. Pull out the transmission dipstick and check level, add if necessary. Also check and see if the fluid has a burnt smell. If the fluid was low and you added fluid road test and if it still slips, and/or the fluid had a burnt smell the transmission needs to be serviced or overhauled. To have major transmission work done go to a good transmission shop, unless you have a lot of mechanical know how and experience I don't reccommend trying this one on your own. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
the throttle housing is in front of radiator ,throttle housing is held by 4 6mm bolts which are screwed up,it should come apparent how to identify screws when large jubilee on entry pipe is removed ,some people take radiator out for ease of access but it is possible to remove trottle body without rad removal,spark plugs are under plastic head cover ,coils for each plug should be carefully removed
