1. Make sure the engine is cool.
2. Using a clean bucket disconnect the lower radiator hose and carefully drain around 1 gallon off coolant then reconnect hose.
3. Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine where it's connected to the gooseneck on the engine.
4. remove the 2 bolts holding the gooseneck and lift it up to remove the thermostat making a mental note on how it was installed.
5. Clean both sides of the gasket surfaces, install new thermostat in the same position it was removed and replace O ring(only use a Motorcraft replacement to avoid having fit issues) alternate tightening bolts until tight.
6. Refill radiatior to proper level.
7 Leaving the raditor cap off, start the car turn on the heater and let it warm up keeping an eye on the coolant level, it will go down once the air works it's way out of the cooling system.
8. Top off the system and tighten radiator cap. Check the coolant level several times during the week, there may still be some air left in the system.

How to remove a radiator from a 94 ford mustang

  • cable from the battery with a wrench to avoid the possibility of the radiator fan inadvertently turning on.
  • 2 Twist the radiator cap off of the top of the radiator after allowing the engine to cool.
  • 3 Drain the radiator coolant into a container by removing the bolt at the base of the radiator with a wrench. Ensure that the container is clean if the coolant will be reused.
  • 4 Slacken the clamps that secure the upper and lower radiator hoses to the radiator with pliers and pull the hoses off of the radiator.

    Excelerated my Mustang real fast to get into moving traffic. Then smelled coolant. When I pulled into a store to get gas 4 miles later the car was smoking. Left a trail of some liquid behind me. Checked...

    You will need to jack the car up to get under it. Once it is jacked up you must be sure to put jack stands under it for your safety. Please - no car is worth your life.
    After you secure the car. Get under it with a flash light and have some one start it and put water in it. Look for the water coming out. You may have blown a hose or a freeze plug. If it is a hose - replace as needed. If it is ANYTHING else please have a professional look at it as you are obviously unable to repair it and the tools alone will cost more than a mechanic in many instances.

    Make sure the radiator pressure cap is the correct one and that the hose is not soft--check the lower hose and heater hoses for softness as well. They should be firm, but not hard or cracking. The temperature sensor is reporting normal operating temperature, so it and the thermostat are working correctly (hot water would blow out of the radiator if it were stuck). Check the cooling fan for free turning and no noise. Check it's grounding connection. Check the fuse box for blown fuses to the fan and to the A/C compressor. Make sure all the relays and fuses are firmly pressed into their sockets. Check the A/C compressor clutch winding for resistance--should not read infinity. Does the blower motor for the heater/A/C run when either is turned on? The A/C switch on the dash may be defective.

    1995 mustang blowing only hot air and overheating

    I would replace the thermostat. Sounds like it is stuck. Follow the upper radiator hose to where it hooks onto the engine. The thermostat is inside the housing that the hose hooks onto. Hope this helped and best wishes.

    Radiator hose issue

    The only hose at the cap is an overflow hose that just drains to the ground. If you're talking about the upper radiator hose, that goes to the thermostat housing on the front of the engine. Hope this helps.

    Starting problem

    could be more than one problem. If you tried to start it right after you blew the hose, something could have gotten wet. I hope you have tried after everything has dried out.
    Also the sound could be something related to the timing. You could have lost a timing belt. Need to look into it alittle deeper. Get more info and let's try again.
