Undo the hose clamps on each end of the hose ,if they are spring type clampsyoumay need a pair of pliers or the like to remove them,then pull the hose off, if it is stuck you may need to try & twist it back & forth to break the seal,basically that is all you have to do,then fit the new hose & use new clamps if necessary.....hope this helps.....cheers

Running hot

Remove thermostat and test it by dipping it in cold water ib an open pot. Heat the water on the stove while observing the thermostat. It shold opel just before the water boils. If it does check the radiator itself for clogging. Also fluch the engine water galleries.

I owne a 2005 Chrysler Towne & Country van with 3.8 liter V6 engine. The radiator has a small annoying leak in it. I am a good "shade tree" mechanic, but have never replaced this type of...

Its not that hard. Once you remove the upper radiator support everything will be a little more accessible. There will be two bolts that hold the a/c condenser to the radiator. Once those are removed pull up on the condenser to release it from the lower mounts and then let it rest in front of the radiator. Remove the fans from the radiator and the upper and lower hoses and the radiator will be ready to pull out.

It will take you about an hour to an hour and a half with a basic set of tools. Make sure you run the vehicle at idle with the cap off until it gets up to operating temp to get all the air out of the cooling system.
