All pick-up trucks are equipped with cross-flow type radiators.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7
- Drain the radiator by opening the drain cock.
- Disconnect the hoses and automatic transmission cooler line, if equipped. Plug the cooler lines to prevent system contamination or excessive fluid loss. Diesels should be equipped with both transmission cooler and oil cooler lines.
- Disconnect the coolant recovery system hose.
- If the vehicle is equipped with a fan shroud, detach the shroud and hang it over the fan to provide clearance. If equipped with a 2-piece shroud, the upper half may be removed for additional access.
- On 6 cylinder engines, remove the finger guard.
- Remove the mounting panel from the radiator support and remove the upper mounting pads.
- Lift the radiator up and out of the truck. Lift the shroud out if necessary.
- Reverse the above to install. Fill the cooling system and check the automatic transmission fluid level, and run the engine, checking for leaks.
