Number One Suggestion..Take your time! Don't Rush!
Read all the auto forums for suggestions.

I took two days to install this replacement. One day to take out the old one and installed the new one. The next day was attaching hoses and filling the system.

My advice for my model jeep. Yes, you have to take off the bumper,grill fascioa,highlights,and top cross member to access all the bolts/clips. Besides the normal uninstall/install procedure. Here's my best tips..

1. Lightly Polish sand 1500 paper(key word Lightly)The brass fittings on the new radiator to insure a good connection for the flare fitting for the trans cooler lines. I put one wrap of teflon on the new brass fittings. (I didn't want to take a chance of having a leak and doing this all over again) You'll notice how the brass fitting is not machined perfect while your Lightly sanding (polishing) the brass flare seat. When installing the trans cooler lines to the new Rad, Don't over tighten, I did my mine hand tight and then gave it a light tap from a hammer to seat the flare.

2. When discconecting the Trans cooler lines. Disconnect them at the bottom where the lower water hose is,.You'll see that both lines have spring type compression clamps holding the rubber hose on the metal tubing. It's a lot easier to remove the radiator with the metal fittings left on the radiator when lifting it out,and that's including the radiator fan attached.

3.When sliding out the old radiator,.I used string to hold the a/c coil and tried to move it towards the front as far as possible. I was able to walk out the old radiator gently without damaging the a/c coil. When I installed the new radiator, I had two people hold the a/c coil this time and the radiator slipped in like butter.

4.I went to local hardware store and found plastic push pin type clips for the wheelwells. I had to break off the org plastic rivets,.6 total.

Finally, I started up the jeep before I installed the front bumper and clips to verify I didn't have any leaks,.Like I said, You don't want to do this twice. So, I'm out of pocket for one radiator,antifreeze and six wheelwell plastic pins.

Transmission Cooler Fittings Leak

Pull the facia and headlight assembly. Buy some plastic rivots as they will break. You will need about 8 trays to organize your fasteners as you disassemble to make it easy to remember how to reassemble.

It is a quick removal process if you have a second set of hands to help handle the facia and headlight assembly. Without a helper, use a ratcheting strap or something similar to hold the headlight assembly in place, or you'll risk breaking a plastic mount when the assembly drops.

Once the radiator is out, it's a good time to replace the belt tensioner, idler, and serpentine belt. I also changed my alternator as it was 12 years old. With it out, it also made sense to change the plugs. The next morning, after seeing how bare it was, I thought I should have replaced the vehicle.

If you also take the engine fan off, don't set it on its side or you will flow silicone into the lubricant of the assembly. Keep it upright.

MAKE SURE YOU TAKE THE LOWER RADIATOR AIR FLAP OFF YOUR OLD ONE AND MOVE IT TO YOUR NEW ONE OR YOU WILL HAVE COOLING PROBLEMS!!!! Without it, air flow will take the path of least resistance after existing your AC Condenser and go around the bottom of the radiator gravely reducing heat transfer. Your thermostat will just hang open for the ride.

I just installed this radiator and it fixed my coolant leak. HOWEVER, my transmission oil joints are leaking. The fittings are different than OEM. They are SAE or AN/JIC style like the original but are longer. They also screw into the transmission cooler whereas the original appears to not. So, they will spin when you tighten the flare nut unless you bite the threads with channel locks.

If yours leak, its a much easier job to just get to the transmission oil cooler fittings. Use a strap wrench to hold the engine fan and break the nut holding the fan. It spins off like normal (like a milk jug would). Pin the strap wrench under something and use a long handled "wrench" and it will easily break free. Then disconnect the electric fan and fight the 4 10mm bolts that hold the shroud on. In 15 minutes, you can have the shroud and fan out to reach the oil fittings.

Tonight, I pulled the fan and shroud to see if thread sealant would stop the leaks. So, I don't know how this will end, yet. My next step is to put Loctite sealant on the taper of the joint to make up for any irregularities.

It may be that the original trans. oil tubing flare ends are simply too spent to make a good seal, but I'm having trouble identifying if its SAE, AN/JIC dimensions or a source of the rigid formed trans oil tubing assemblies to replace them or cut them back and reflare.

Good luck...your gonna need it.

          Jeep has a different idea on how a radiator is installed. I had to remove the grill which is fastened to the bumper cover, the cross brace, and the ac evap coilwas bolted to the radiator. The radiator was a perfect fit and has dropped the operating temp down by about 20*.

              A:

              I'm happy to help, APR! It sounds like the leak is coming from where the radiator connects to your coolant reservoir. There should be a hose connected to that piece that goes to the reservoir. If the hose is missing, replace that and that should fix the leak. If you require further assistance diagnosing or repairing the part try our 'Need expert help?' link further down this page.

              If you don't have transmission cooling lines running to the radiator then you don't have to do anything with the plugs on the new one because there won't be anything coming in so nothing will leak out. The transmission fluid is kept seperate from the radiator fluid so it shouldn't leak out those holes as long as there isn't anything wrong with the radiator.
