You need to get the ford quick disconnect tools needed to disconnect both lines. Should be able to get these tools at any auto parts store.

Change the combination power steering hose which is leaking


Is it the power steering hose or a transmission line.Honda does not usually attach power steering lines to the radiator, but the transmission cooler lines are attached to the bottom of the radiator. If it is the transmission cooler line leaking, simply replace the line from the radiator to the transmission with 1/2 inch transmission line and some new clamps.May want to do both lines while you are making the repair.

A Chiltons Repair Manual is available for your vehicle at most every Auto Parts Supply store. It will give you step-by-step instructions, or you can simply Google for the instructions.

Here is a YouTube video on the process of changing the radiator out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ulBDWb0hUw

Need to change radiator dont know how to remove it


You shouldn't have to remove A/C lines. The A/C lines you are seeing go to the A/C condensor that is in front of, but seperate from the radiator. The metal lines attached to the radiator go to the transmission. The transmission cooler is built in to the radiator.

Leaking S10 Radiator...big trouble to replace?


Depends on whether you want to buy a new or used a salvage yard will cost significantly less. As far as changing the radiator is concerned is a fairly easy task, you will need a catch basin to capture the anti-freeze.
On the core support are three bolts removed them as well as the fan guard three bolts each side, you'll need a pair of pliers and a flat head screwdriver As well as a few wrenches, with the pan under the bottom hose squeeze together the clamp and slide it down the hose if you cannot pull the bottom hose off by hand use your screwdriver on the inside of the hose to help loosen it up then you should be able to get it off, then remove the two lines for the transmission it will leak some and I suggest using a rag under that then remove the top hose to the radiator remove old radiator and install the new radiator ..reverse installation is how it is reinstalled as well as replace fluid {anti freeze / dex cool } with the engine running add fluid as needed then replace cap and tighten .

Transmission trouble


Radiator's with auto trans vehicles have transmission oil coolers built into one end of them,or top or bottom,and this is how the transmission fluid is cooled.I have seen a few over the years,where the tank in the radiator developed a leak,and engine water based coolant enters the transmission.Very bad,as clutch plates and bands have mostly paper,sometimes kevlar or high energy linings that are glued onto the steel clutch plates with water based glue.Well,when the water from the engine finally gets to this glue,it dissolves,and the linings just fall off the steel plates,and the trans no longer functions.If you catch it very early,this can be headed off by doing a total trans flush to remove any and all coolant from the transmission.Make certain this includes changing the filter..And of course replace the radiator with a new one.
