You will have to disconnect the battery, remove the air breather box for the intake, drain the radiator, unbolt the top radiator support and remove it, possibly if I remember correctly you will also have to unbolt the hood latch, disconnect the upper and lower radiator hoses, unbolt the cooling fans, and carefully tilt the radiator back towards the engine and lift it out. Be sure to recover the grommets from the bottom of the old radiator to use on the new one as they provide vibration dampening that the radiator needs as it is metal and plastic.

I have a 97 town and country with a 3.8 i have charged the ac and the coressor kicks on but the fans on the radiator dont and it dosnt blow out any cold air the ac lines dont even get cold can it be that...

If it doesn't cool at all there is a fault in the system preventing it from cooling down properly and building pressure like it should. You will need to have this checked by a service tech.

Im trying to change the engine coolant in 2004 Chrylser Town and Country. The drain **** wont close. Any suggestions?

The Drain Cocks can be replaced without removing the Radiator. They twist clockwise to open and counterclockwise to close, but have a very short (1/4 to 1/3 turn) range. Most people over-twist these causing them to break or crack (I DID IT MYSELF ONCE!); as they are used to the old unscrew/screw types of the past.
These are available at most auto part stores over the counter. I looked your part up and the HELP! brand for your Van is Part #61134, for around $9.
These Drain Cocks have an o-ring(s) on the end. Yours' has one (1).
Continue twisting yours out and replace. Make sure that o-ring comes out on the ****.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

What is the easiest way to get to the radiator fan relay on the bumper behind the front grille?

Yes, first remove the drivers side headlight. There are 3 bolts to remove for the headlight assembly. Once it is removed, you can have access to the relay. You may have to remove some of the screws that hold the top of the front facia to the cross member to give you some more access, but you don't have to take off the whole grill to replace the relay. Hope this helps.
