Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus
Start by using a clean drain pan placed underneath the radiator drain plug, use a 3/8" one foot length of rubber hose on the radiator drain plug and open the drain plug with the other end of the rubber hose in the clean drain pan, this way, if your coolant is clean, you can reuse it. Next, remove the bracket on top of the radiator, remove upper and lower radiator hoses, remove transmission cooling lines from the radiator, then remove the cooling fan(s). At this time the radiator should lift straight out. Check bottom core support and make sure it's straight across. If the bottom core support is bent, this is the best time to get a big ole hammer and straighten it out. I've changed many radiators because of parking blocks, parking blocks are not forgiving on these types of cars. Good luck, Gary
