It's pretty easy to replace. Take off the cooling fans. Three radiator mounting bolts on top. Disconnect top and bottom hoses. Disconnect overflow hose. Disconnect transmission fluid cooling lines. Disconnect coolant temperature sensor and coolant level sensor. Then the radiator just pulls up and out.

Can you replace the power steering oil cooler by removing the grill, etc going through the front? Or do you have to remove the radiator, AC, power steering condenser to replace the PS cooler?


The PS cooler on many cars is much smaller than the radiator and "universal" replacements can be installed anywhere - even in front of the radiator. So, if you can disconnect / cut the lines to the original without any trouble - I'd do that and install the replacement where convenient. If you're replacing with the OEM cooler, then you'll need to be more careful and take it out properly. Which cooler do you have? Year, make & model vehicle?

Remove and Replace my radiator


Open front hood "frunk" remove radiator cover plastic.

Remove upper radiator bracket supports.

Disconnect radiator fan wiring connectors.

Remove upper radiator fan bolts.

Jack up front of the car. Place jack stands and use ebrake and some kind of wedge to stop rear from rolling backwards for safety

Remove lower radiator fan bolts and lower fans down and place to the side.

Connect the factory clear tubes to the drain nossle by the lower passenger side of radiator if you still have them if not use a large enough collection pan so it doesnt splash much.

Open top release. Top of radiator driver side.

Place your bucket under the drain nossle and open that up. Let the coolant drain. When finished close both nossles.

If the radiator has not been replaced before or if it was put back the right way. Youre radiator hose clamps will be facing downward. Use some long needle mpse pliers to remove hose clamps and then remove the radiators hoses from radiator. Keep collection bucket under.

Once both sides of radiator hose are removed. Gently lift the radiator forward and upward to release the bottom of the radiator from where it is seated and then lower the radiator out the bottom.

Reverse to install and make sure to follow factory manual for bleeding coolant system after

Facing car right hand side lower radiator remove drain plug on cold engine. If your radiator is bad the hoses are old to cut hoses off one top one lower. Have a shop discharge AC.Remove fan connectors.Remove the front fascia (the front of the car blocking the radiator from coming out. The painted part like you got hit in the front and had to replace the front cover) Remove AC lines. Remove transmission cooler lines. Remove push pins holding top plate on radiator. Remove right and left push pin brackets.Remove AC condenser side brackets.Lift up condenser and set back down in front of radiator.Lift radiator out and remove cooler and fan Assembly.If you want the original antifreeze go to dealer or Napa Zerex G5 same thing was 15 a gallon takes 1 and a 1/4 gallons + distilled water 50/50 Sounds like a lot of fun let me know how long it takes
