Depends on the weather I guess. Just make sure you drain the radiator first and keep a drain pan under while you replace the radiator. You may find some of the trans. fluid dripping a little during thte replacement.

Radiator


Look for signs of coolant leakage on the garage floor, driveway or ground under your vehicle. Check the level of coolant in the overflow reservoir or inside the radiator by removing the radiator cap. The engine must be cool before the radiator cap can be safely removed. Inspect the radiator to find where it is leaking. There may be an obvious hole or other defect that is easy to spot, such as deposits of coolant and an orange or green discoloration.

Removing radaitor fan motor


A radiator fan motor helps to keep your car's engine cool and in good working order. If your engine becomes overheated during a road trip, it can seize up, causing your car to break down. If your radiator fan motor malfunctions, it is essential that you replace it right away. If you are tight on cash, there is no need to bring your car to a costly auto repair shop. With the right tools and a little direction, you can replace your car's radiator fan motor in your own garage or driveway.

Overheating idle is fine and new thermoshat


Subarus can be challenging to "burp" Sometimes it takes several attempts to get the air out of the system. The procedure is simple. Top off the radiator, squeeze the hose a few times to help get the air out, replace the cap and start the car. let it idle or drive slowly near home with the heat on high. once the temp gauge begins to rise, if there is no heat get the car back to the driveway before the temp gauge gets half way. Shut the engine off wait for it to cool, at least 10 minutes. Then check the radiator again. If there is still air top off again and repeat. After 3 or 4 attempts if there is still air and or the coolant reservoir seems to be filling, try replacing the radiator cap. If this doesn't solve the problem, It may be a head gasket.

this sounds like the engine oil cooler hose was leaking.

DO NOT run the engine again until you fill with oil.

start the engine and look for the hose that is leaking.

Can only be the radiator or a hose leak.
You have to actually get under there and check it out, when it is hot and leaking. You would think the shop you went to would have found the issue.
The plastic tanks may expand under pressure if there is a crack,then leak.

My 1997 ford explorer overheated and the transmission slipped


Tranny fluid may have been contaminated with coolant since tranny cooler lines go to radiator or condensor.
I would fix your leak on radiator, then completely drain tranny fluid and filter and replace.

Creaking noise in front end 1997 explorer


Sounds like it is your CV axles.  Turn the wheel one direction, right or left, and check just behind the wheels to see if your CV boot is cracked or ripped (the boot is a black, rubber accordion looking thing).  If it is cracked or ripped, I would say that is definitely the problem.
