1994 Ford Taurus Remove Radiator
Most 1994 Ford Taurus sedans have a lot of miles on them at this point in their lives, and that means that major parts start to wear out. A radiator can get internal corrosion, which will not only decrease its effectiveness for bringing down the temperature of the coolant but also may cause leaks in the radiator itself. Fixing it isn't a difficult process, but it can be time-consuming, taking anywhere from one to two hours depending on experience level.
 Tools Used
|Flat head screwdriver|
|3/8-inch ratchet and socket set|
|Line wrench set|
 Remove the Radiator
- Allow the engine to cool for at least five hours prior to working on the cooling system. Place a drain pan underneath the radiator. Open the radiator cap then open the petcock at the lower rear corner of the radiator to allow the coolant to drain out.
- Unbolt the shroud retaining screws using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket and set the shroud to the side. Unplug the cooling fan harness by hand.
- Disconnect the upper and lower radiator hose clamps using a flat head screwdriver and pull the lines off of the radiator. Point them downwards so the coolant can drain into the drain pan.
- Unbolt the transmission cooler lines using the line wrench set. Then unbolt the upper retaining screws on the radiator using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. Tilt the radiator towards the engine to allow any additional coolant to drain out then lift it out of the engine compartment.
