frown Radiator Installation

I have a 93 Mustang LX 5.0L. The radiator is shot - all the water leaked out. Will it be an easy job to pull the old one out and install a new one? Thanks.

Re: Radiator Installation

Biggest challenge will be refilling the coolant and getting all the air out of the system. Remember to turn the heater on so the heater core gets filled as well.

Re: Radiator Installation

Yanking the old one should only be a couple of bolts and of course removing the upper and lower raditor hoses. It is simpler than it looks. You can do it. If you need help get a hold of a Haynes Auto Maintance and Repair book from Auto Zone or Advanced auto parts.

If you can't run with the big dog's. Then chase the smaller one's.
