Hi Garret,here's a link on how to replace your radiator,seems easy,here's your new radiator,comes with lifetime warranty,never have to buy again,I use them.It says you should use extended life antifreeze cause of the aluminum water pump,you can get prestone antifreeze at Walmart for 12.99 a gallon,mix it 50/50 and you will have 2 gallons.Also get a new radiator cap.

I need to replace the transmission inlet lines on the radiator. Where can I find these?


There are as far as I know, no hard lines from
the trans to the radiator avail

The repairs at the radiator end, can be done
by removing the rubber hose furrels and replacing
the rubber hose and using clamps

If you have a vehicle with special radiator connectors,
as on some fords,there are parts for the disconnects

Need to change radiator on 2006 ford explorer


THE EASIEST WAY TO REPLACE THIS RADIATOR IS TO REMOVE THE FREON FROM THE AC SYSTEM, DISCONNECT THE LINES GOING TO THE AC CONDENSER, REMOVE THE FAN SHROUD TOP AND BOTTOM, THEN REMOVE THE 13MM BOLTS ON THE UPPER PART OF THE RADIATOR SUPPORTS. REMOVE THE AIR DIFLECTOR ON THE BOTTOM OF THE VEHICLE, REMOVE THE AIR FILTER ASSEMBLY. LAST YOU NEED THE TOOL TO DISCONNECT THE TRANS LINES. ONCE THIS IS DONE THE RADIATOR AND THE CONDENSER WILL COME OUT IN ONE PIECE. AFTER THIS IS DONE YOU CAN EASILY REMOVE THE RADIATOR FROM THE SUPPORT.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE TOOL TO REMOVE THE TRANS LINES YOU CAN UNSCREW THE TRANS LINES FROM THE RADIATOR. YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE FITTINGS OFF THE NEW RADIATOR AND USE THE OLD ONES. ONCE YOU HAVE THE RADIATOR IN PUT THE FAN SHROUD BACK IN AND TIGHTEN THE BOLTS. THEN IF YOU HAD TO UNSCREW THE TRANS LINES DUE TO NO TOOL, REMOVE ONE OF THE FITTINGS OFF THE NEW RADIATOR AND SCREW THE OLD FIITING BACK IN AND TIGHTEN IT. THEN REMOVE THE OTHER TRANS FITTING AND SCREW IT IN USING THE OLD FITTING. DO NOT REMOVE BOTH OF THE TRANS FIITINGS ON THE NEW RADIATOR AT THE SAME TIME OR YOU WILL LOSE THE RESEVOIR IN THE RADIATOR. ONCE THIS IS ALL DONE EVACUATE THE AC SYSTEM, RECHARGE THE AC, FILL THE RADIATOR WITH COOLANT AND YOU SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND REPLACING THE RADIATOR, THERMOSTAT, AND THE RADIATOR CAP AT THE SAME TIME. I BELIEVE THE THERMOSTATS IN THIS VEHICLE DO NOT OPEN AS DESIGNED WHICH CREATES VERY HIGH PRESSURE IN THE COOLING SYSTEM WHICH CAUSES THE RADIATOR TO FAIL PREMATURELY.
AFTER STARTING THE VEHICLE CHECK THE UPPER RADIATOR HOSE AND MAKE SURE IT IS NOT ROCK HARD, IF YOU DID NOT REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT. IF IT IS ROCK HARD REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT.
THINGS TO CHECK:
CHECK THE RAD/CONDESER SUPPORTS FOR CRACKS YOU MAY FIND THEY ARE BROKEN IF THEY ARE REPLACE THE SUPPORT. IT IS AVAILABLE FROM FORD.

Need to replace radiator. How do I get to it


I have 1995, and that is quite a different model, but -
There was a little plastic plate (4 screws?) over the radiator.
Drain the radiator by the stopcock at the bottom. remove the two large rubber hoses (recommend replacement) by loosening hose clamps. Disconnect the two steel lines (transmission oil lines) over a bucket too. there were two u-shaped clamps over the radiator - remove them, then the radiator. Not a very hard job. Good luck!

Transmission shifts hard after driving for 15 to 20 miles.


There is a possibility the transmission is overheating, probably due to clogged cooling lines in the radiator. The transmission fluid is pumped through hoses to the radiator where it goes through cooling lines built into the radiator for this purpose. If the flow of transmission fluid through these lines is restricted, the transmission will overheat, and rough/hard shifting will result. Unless you are experienced at this sort of thing, I would recommend you take the car to a good shop to get this checked out. At the very least, you will have to have the radiator replaced. At worst, you might have to replace or rebuild the transmission.
