Question about Saturn SW
You'll have to drain the coolant by disconnecting the bottom radiator hose. try and catch the coolant and dispose of it by epa rules (do not pour down the drain or on the ground), then disconnect the top hose.
If it has electric fans remove them. If not remove the fan shroud and you may have to remove the fan depending on space to get radiator out.
Then there'll be a couple (usually 4) mounting bolts holding it in.
Once out replace in the reverse order of taking out and make sure you change the rubber grommets from the old radiator to the new one or replace them.
If you want to flush the block do it before reconnecting bottom hose.
After all together and radiator topped up, start vehicle with radiator cap off and top up as coolant goes through the system until it starts to overflow a little then put cap on.
If is a newer model it may have a coolant bleeder valve which is usually located near/on the thermostat housing which you crack of while vehicle is running till coolant is coming out and not air.
If doesn't have a bleeder valve just check coolant again after you've gone for a drive in it then let it cool down. DO NOT remove cap while the car is hot.
