GM Radiator Removal
*Warning* Make sure your GM vehicle is completely off and cooled before you attempt to install or remove the radiator. Read below to learn how to install GM radiator.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery.
  2. Drain the cooling system. If the coolant is relatively new and in good condition, save and reuse it.
    (Note: Remove the plastic drain plug carefully so as not to ruin it.)
  3. Remove the air cleaner assembly.
  4. If the vehicle has an automatic transaxle, disconnect the cooler lines from the radiator, and then cap the ends to prevent excessive fluid loss and contamination. Use a drip pan to catch any spills.
  5. Remove the engine cooling fan assembly.
  6. Loosen the hose clamps and detach the radiator hoses from the fittings. If they stick, grasp each hose near the end with adjustable pliers, twist to break the seal, and pull off.
    (Note: Do not distort the radiator fittings. If the hoses are old or deteriorated, cut them off and install new ones.)
  7. Disconnect the reservoir hose from the radiator neck.
  8. Plug the lines and fittings. This prevents coolant or ATF spills as you remove the radiator.
  9. Remove the bolts from the radiator mounting panel.
  10. Remove the mounting panel and carefully lift out the radiator.
    (Note: Do not spill radiator coolant on the vehicle or scratch the paint.)
  11. When the radiator is removed, you can inspect it for leaks and damage. If repair is necessary, go to a radiator shop or dealer service department.
  12. With compressed air and a soft brush, remove bugs, dirt, or any other debris from the radiator. Do not bend the cooling fins.
  13. Check the radiator mounts for deterioration. Make sure they are empty when the radiator is installed.
