How do you replace the radiator in a 1997 Ford Escort?


Check this procedure to REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(1.8L and 1.9L Engines)

CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place fender covers on the aprons.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Drain the cooling system.
  4. Remove the right and left-hand front splash shields.
  5. Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the radiator.
  6. If equipped with an automatic transaxle, disconnect the lower oil cooler line from the radiator. Remove the oil cooler line brackets from the bottom of the radiator.
  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8. If equipped with an automatic transaxle and air conditioning, remove the seal located between the radiator and the fan shroud.
  9. If equipped with an automatic transaxle, remove the upper oil cooler line from the radiator.

  11. Unplug the cooling fan motor electrical connector and the cooling fan thermoswitch electrical connector.
  12. If necessary, remove the cooling fan thermoswitch for clearance.
  13. Remove the three fan shroud attaching bolts and remove the shroud assembly by pulling it straight up.
  14. On some 1.9L engines equipped with A/C, remove the upper radiator air deflector from the radiator and set it aside.
  15. Remove the upper radiator hose and the two upper radiator mounts.
  16. If equipped, remove the fluid cooler tube bracket bolts and coolant overflow hose from the radiator.

Cooling fan burned up


Get a new fan motor and blade from GM or from an aftermarket supplier.

GM parts are usually better than the aftermarket ones, though for fit and functioin.

May also look into checking the relays and harness. If the terminals of the fan show they are getting current, then the motor will have to be replaced if not turning or obviously burnt.

Good luck on this repair.

Inspect/Replace

CAUTION
The fan that draws cool air across the radiator can be driven by either a belt or electricity. Rotating fans can be dangerous. Some are controlled by an automatic switch and can start unexpectedly. When working on electric fans, keep in mind that electric cooling fans should be disconnected when working around them.
When replacing a radiator fan motor, always refer to the vehicle's service manual. The following is a general guide for cooling fan replacement.

  • Disconnect the negative battery terminal at the battery. This is necessary on vehicles using electric fans, but some vehicles may require the relocation of the charging system components.
  • Drain the cooling system.
  • Loosen or remove the hose clamps, then remove the upper and lower hoses from the radiator.
  • Disconnect the transmission cooling lines and plug them off, if equipped.
  • Disconnect the electric fan motor connector, if equipped.
  • Remove the fasteners attaching the fan module to the radiator.
  • On some vehicles equipped with air conditioning systems, it may be necessary to discharge the system. This is the case if the radiator and condenser can not be separated in the vehicle.
  • Remove the upper radiator cross member or mounts.
  • Disconnect and plug the air conditioning lines at the condenser, if needed.
  • Remove the radiator and fan module as one unit if possible.
  • Separate the fan module from the radiator.
  • If required, separate the radiator from the condenser.
  • Remove the old fan module.
  • Install the new fan module onto the radiator.
  • Reattach the fasteners attaching the fan module to the radiator.
  • If equipped, connect the electric fan motor connector.
  • Reinstall the radiator.
  • Refill the cooling system.

I need to replace the radiator on my 1999 contour, does it come out the top or bottow?


It comes out through the top....Make sure the engine is cold first.
  • Disconnect the cooling fan electrics.
  • Remove the cowling fasteners if required
  • Remove the bottom hose clamp
  • Remove the top hose clamp
  • Open the drain tap or simply remove the lower hose.
  • If the hoses are hard to remove, gently twist back and forth until they have become loose and then remove.
  • Un-bolt the two radiator clamps on the top, which hold the radiator and lift it out carefully.
  • When replacing it's a good idea to replace the hoses and the clamps together with a new pressure cap.

    Need instructions on how to replace radiator on a 6 cyl 1997 ford


    Yes I've done it quite a few times....not fun. Take off mud guard underneath (Think they're T-25 tourqe bits). Then take off the 2 brackets They're supposed to be 8mm but sometimes you have to mushroom the bolt heads with a hammer and use a 7mm. Then you have to disconnect everything and unbolt the radiator from the condenser. Then take the radiator out by pulling it out the bottom and pushing the condenser up. Its been a couple years since I've done one but thats how i recall it. Ford made them very difficult. Good Luck ^_^
