SOURCE: 2006 ford explorer

after disconnecting the three hoses and the 2 transmition lines from the radiator there should be two bolts holding the top bracket on and the same for the bottom. ( note that you will more than likely have to take the clutch fan off in order to pull the radiator out, and you will have to remove the cover under the radiation on the bottom on the explorer to get to the bottom bracked bolts.)

You need to evacuate a/c system, drain radiator, remove fan and fan shrout, disconnect both a/c line's going to a/c condensor, remove upper and lower coolant hoses, you'll well need a oil cooler line disconnect tool ( napa has it part # 775-9086 ) remove both upper bolt's that screw on to radiator support, remove radiator and condensor as one, remove both 10mm bolt's that screw into radiator, remove both side radiator bracket's install both bracket's on new radiator, and reinstall new radiator, you will need to evacuate a/c system and recharge. Hope this was helpful.

Where is the radiator drain plug on 2006 equinox


Radiator drain plug is at the bottom on the left side of the radiator / driver's side when mounted in a 2006 Equinox. The drain valve is on the side of the radiator at the bottom, it faces towards the fender.

to remove the radiator, first get adrain pan for the anti-freeze/coolant,then get down under the front of the truck and look for a drain on the right side/passenger on the bottom, back side. drain the fluid, then remove the lower hose from the radiator,now remove the top hose and the transmission lines on the right side( if it's an automatic.if not disregard) now remove the fan, remove the fan cover(shroud), take the four bolts ,two on each side, out and pull the radiator out the top.replace in reverse.

Where is drain plug on radiator for 2006 pontiac grand prix


usualy the drain pluggs are located ON or neer the bottom [1-2 inches] of the radiator it should be a butterfly looking plug you can usualy turn by hand maby a small pair of plyers will be needed. some cars its facing the engen or on the engen side some are on the outside or bumper side of radiator. you may need to lay on your back and shimmy under face up so you can clearly see. sometime they are more difficult to find some cars have a pan looking cover on the bottom of radiator you shouldent need to remove this just feel around over the top of pan for a butterfly or wingnut lookin plug. it may be in a ressesed hole. i would start looking on the side the lower hose is on and go from there. also you dont need to remove this plugg once you find it just loosen it and the fluid starts flowing out. have something ready to catch the fluid in and NEVER do this after the car has been driven. this fluid remains very hott a very long time the last thing you need is to have hot fluid falling on you and you cant move because your under the car. remember if green fluid come out green fluid goes back in. if orange fluid comes out orange fluid goes back in. REMEMBER [ RIGHT TO TIGHT ]- [LEFT TO LOOSEN.].

How do you change the thermastat on the 2005 ford explorer sport trac


  1. 1 Drain the coolant from your Explorer into an adequate container by opening the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator. Save the coolant for reuse if it is relatively new and clean.
  2. 2 Remove the negative battery cable from the battery if your Explorer has a 2.9-, 3.0-, 4.0- or 5.0-liter engine. This step is not necessary for 2.3- and 2.5-liter engines.
  3. 3 Follow the upper radiator hose to the front driver's side of the intake manifold, where it meets the engine. This is where the thermostat housing on your Ford Explorer is located. If necessary, remove the air cleaner duct for easy access to the housing.
  4. 4 Loosen the clip on the end of the radiator hose and pull the hose off the thermostat housing. Use a 10mm wrench or socket to remove the two retaining bolts on the thermostat housing cover. Remove the cover.
  5. 5 Note the position of the thermostat before removal. Pull out the old thermostat. Seat the new thermostat inside the housing in the same position as the old one, spring-side facing into the engine. Install new gasket over the thermostat.
  6. 6 Reattach the thermostat housing cover and the radiator hose. Reinstall the air cleaner duct if removed earlier. Fill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Start your Explorer and run with the heater blowing until the engine gets warm. Check for leaks.

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.

Where is the radiator drain plug on the 2006 Dodge Stratus


It should be on the lower right side of the radiator, BUT, if I remember correctly, it is plastic and breaks easily. I think the best way is to even take off the bumper cover, move the horn a bit and gently, very gently since it is plastic and junk, unscrew it.

I would probably go the other way and remove the bottom radiator hose. If you have a plastic plug like I believe, it really is very fragile and breaks easily.

Again, I'd yank the bottom radiator hose. Either way, be careful!

Good luck!!
