*Warning* Make sure the engine is completely cool before you install or remove the radiator for your Chevrolet.
Note: Late model vehicles use spring type chevrolet radiator hose clamps. If you reuse these clamps, be sure that the radiator hose is installed on a clean, dry connection. If the connection has been painted or coated, scrape it down to the bare metal. Do not try to reuse these clamps on aftermarket radiator hoses. Instead, replace them with conventional worm drive type clamps before chevy radiator removal.
Before you start, be sure to have a flare nut wrench available to remove the transmission coler lines, and a drip pan to catch any spills.
  1. The negative battery cable must be disconnected from the battery of your Chevrolet.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Disconnect the overflow, heater, and upper and lower radiator hoses from the radiator.
  4. If you have an automatic transmission, remove the transmission cooler lines from the side of the radiator. Do not twist the lines or damage the fittings. We recommend you use a flare nut wrench rather than an open-end wrench
  5. Plug the ends of the disconnected lines to prevent leakage and prevent dirt from entering the system.
  6. If you have an engine oil cooler, disconnect the lines on the opposite side of the radiator.
  7. Unbolt and remove the fan shroud. You may only need to remove the upper portion for most service operations.
  8. Remove the radiator mounting brackets, if your Chevy has them.
  9. Lift the radiator from the engine compartment. Be sure not to touch the fan blades.
  10. Before radiator installation, replace any damaged hose clamps and/or radiator hoses.
