REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
- Note the radio security code and station presets.
- Disconnect the negative battery cable.
- Drain the engine coolant into a sealable container.
- Remove the fasteners from the thermostat housing, then remove the thermostat.
