Nickels a Taurus Radiator
The Ford Taurus sedan is manufactured with a radiator that circulates coolant, control the engine at an optimal temperature. As coolant moves finished the aluminium fins, passing air wicks elsewhere heat from the coolant, and then it returns to the engine. This radiator can eventually be damaged or corroded, and may hope for replacement. The customary weekend mechanic can modify the Taurus' radiator in approximately an lifetime.
1. Empty the coolant from the radiator by placing the withdraw pan underneath the lower due corner of the radiator and turning the petcock counterclockwise with the pliers. The coolant Testament pour gone into the pan. Coercion can be released from the manner by removing the radiator cap counterclockwise by fist.
2. Disconnect the battery by turning the terminal bolt counterclockwise with the socket wrench.6. Installation is the reverse of removal. Once the system is reconnected, it should be filled with the proper level of diluted coolant.
The shroud and fan will lift up as one piece and can be removed.
4. Remove the hoses from the radiator by turning the hose clamp screws counterclockwise and working each hose off of the radiator nipple. More fluid will drain out into the pan so have it handy.
5. Remove the top mount plate by turning the bolts counterclockwise with the socket wrench. Lift the plate and place it away from the work area. The radiator can now be removed by pulling it straight up and out of the guide rails.
Field it aside.3. Remove the fan shroud and electric fan by disconnecting the fan's wiring harness connector (pull apart terminals) then turning the four fan shroud bolts counterclockwise using a socket wrench. Early models may have screws instead of bolts.
