Unbolt the fan motor from the shroud


1 Drain the coolant into a container (see Chapter 1).

2 Remove both the upper and lower radiator hoses.

3 Disconnect the reservoir hose from the radiator filler neck.

4 Remove the cooling fan (see Section 4).

5 If equipped with an automatic transmission, disconnect the fluid cooler pipes from the radiator (see illustration). Place a drip pan to catch the fluid and cap the fittings.

6 Remove the two upper radiator mounting brackets (see illustration). Note: The bottom of the radiator is retained by grommeted projections that fit into holes in the body.

7 Lift out the radiator. Be aware of dripping fluids and the sharp fins.

8 With the radiator removed, it can be inspected for leaks, damage and internal blockage. If in need of repairs, have a professional radiator workshop or dealer service department perform the work as special techniques are required.

9 Insects and dirt can be cleaned from the radiator with compressed air and a soft brush.

Don't bend the cooling fins as this is done.

Warning: Wear eye protection when using compressed air.

10 Refitting is the reverse of the removal procedure. Be sure the rubber mounts are in place on the bottom of the radiator.

11 After refitting, fill the cooling system with the proper mixture of antifreeze and water. Refer to Chapter 1 if necessary.

12 Start the engine and check for leaks.

Allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature, indicated by both radiator hoses becoming hot. Recheck the coolant level and add more if required.

13 On automatic transmission-equipped models, check and add fluid as needed.
