Question about 2001 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

I need to replace the radiator on an 01 Ford Taurus. The manual says to remove the radiator from the bottom, but a forum I saw says you can remove fan assembly and remove the radiator from the top. Is anyone familiar with this procedure? I would certainly appreciate all help. Also should I flush the system before or after I install new radiator? Thank you

    Also, I am trying to understand whether or not to remove the "upper radiator support bulkhead" that has about 15 bolts, or is that for the earlier model Taurus?. The forums I've been don't discuss that, but the Haynes manual says it. Any advice on this? Thanks

I haven't had the pleasure of removing the radiator yet... looks like you could do it from top or bottom. If from botton, you'd have to begin by jacking the car up so you have enough clearance, secure on stands, and remove the spashguards. It looks like you sould be able to remove from top too, which is prolly what I would do, just be careful of the fusebox there. There are lots of hoses around too, so be careful.

Also, I would flush first so you don't bring the old antifreeze and crud/ rust / sediment into a new radiator.

My ford taurus 01 is leaking coolant. I already replaced the water pump, and still leaking. How can I find where the leak is at? I need the repair manual. I was told it has 3 water seals besides the water...


Go to your local auto parts store and rent a coolant pressure tester, it's a hand pump with a radiator cap on the end, so you simply install it instead of the radiator cap, pump it up to about 10psi and visually look for the leak, should be easy to find. If that fails you could also try a dye test, ask about it at the auto parts store for more information.

How to change a radiator on a 1996 ford taurus


  1. Step 1 Drive your Ford Taurus up a set of ramps onto a pair of jack stands, if it is a 1996 model or newer. Remove the lower splash shields. For 1986 through 1995 models, you can remove all necessary components from above.
  2. Step 2 Begin by disconnecting the negative battery terminal and draining the radiator into a transportable container. Open the plastic draincock on the lower rear of the radiator and crack the radiator cap.
  3. Step 3 Remove the overflow tube from the coolant recovery bottle and disconnect it from the radiator. On SHO model engines, remove the recovery bottle as well. Next unscrew the shroud and remove it from the retaining clips. Disconnect the wires to the fan motor, and remove the fan assembly and shroud in one piece.
  4. Step 4 Squeeze the hose clamp ends together on the radiator side, and remove the upper and lower hoses. For automatic transaxle models, use either the custom Ford disconnect tool T82L-9500-AH or two crescent wrenches to remove the transmission coolant lines.
  5. Step 5 Disconnect the radiator supports. 1986 through 1992 models will have two upper retaining screws for 3.0 liter and SHO engines. 3.8 liter engines will have two driver's side hex nuts and two passenger side screws. All other models have either the upper screws or the combination of right hand hex nuts and left hand screws.
  6. Step 6 Tilt the radiator backwards toward the engine and lift it out. Fit the new radiator into the support and replace the support screws and nuts. Reattach the hoses and wires in reverse order.
  7. Step 7 Flush the new radiator with either water or a commercial flush treatment. Connect your battery terminals and replace the coolant and let the engine idle for 5 to 10 minutes with the heater on and the radiator cap removed. Top off the coolant as necessary.
Thank you,
Lee

I need to r and r a radiator in a 1998 ford taurs ses and someone told me it has to come out the bottom of the car so i wanted to see in a manual what the steps are befor i started.


If I remember correctly , along the top of the radiator is a support with 4 bolts , 2 on each side that you can remove and then remove support to access the radiator through the top not the bottom. It will be a time consuming job , be prepared , and good luck.
