Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
3.0L V6 Engine with Overhead Valves The Radiator mush come out the bottom of the car. I'm looking for a step by step or diagram on how to remove and replace. I know I must take off the dust shield and disconnect upper and lower radiator hoses. What else needs disconnected, and how do I go about doing so?

Remove the rad support cover, remove the electric cooling fan and shroud, disconnect the tranny cooler lines, drain the cooling system, remove the upper and lower hoses, remove the rad brackets on top of the rad (one on each side), have someone hold the AC core out of the way and carefully slide the radiator up and out

the open pipe that you took the hose off of is the thermostat housing, you will need to remove this to reveal the thermostat, make sure you use a new gasket with sealant when reinstalling thermostat housing to prevent leaks and dont over tighten the bolts,run both bolts down as far as you can before final tightning
