Replace the radiator and the thermostat. Both easy jobs. Be sure to "burp" the engine by letting it run a couple or three thermostat cycles with the radiator cap off. You don't want air trapped in the block.
You can remove the radiator and fans as one piece, then separate the fan assembly with it out of the car. Remember to plug the fans back in when its completed and don't loose the rubber cushions that mount in the bottom of the core bracket.
Automatic Trans? Also, check the transmission fluid level after its warmed up. You will lose some disconnecting the cooler lines.
Thanks very much Cardoc, definitely appreciate the tips as this will be my first time doing the radiator/thermo. Any other tips or things to watch out for?
Also, it's a manual trans. Quick question as well, does the thermo usually need to be replaced with the radiator or does it sound like that's jubbed up to you as well? Just tryin to save any penny I can!
Thanks again my friend
