COOLING, HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEMS
RADIATOR AND COOLANT RESERVOIR | REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
CLUTCH AND DRIVELINE
WARNING: Do not start this procedure until the engine is completely cool.
RADIATOR (Refer to illustrations 5.7, 5.8a and 5.8b)
- Disconnect the negative battery cable. Caution: If the stereo in your vehicle is equipped with an anti-theft system, make sure you have the correct activation code before disconnecting the battery.
- Drain the coolant into a container (see Chapter 1).
- Remove both the upper and lower radiator hoses.
- Disconnect the reservoir hose from the radiator filler neck.
- Remove the cooling fan (see Section 4).
- If equipped with an automatic transmission, disconnect the cooler lines from the radiator. Place a drip pan to catch the fluid and cap the fittings.
- Remove the grill center support (see illustration).
- Remove the two upper radiator mounting brackets (see illustration). Remove all the bolts that retain the radiator to the grill frame (see illustration).
- Lift out the radiator. Be aware of dripping fluids and the sharp fins.
- With the radiator removed, it can be inspected for leaks, damage and internal blockage. If in need of repairs, have a professional radiator shop or dealer service department perform the work as special techniques are required.
- Bugs and dirt can be cleaned from the radiator with compressed air and soft brush. Don't bend the cooling fins as this is done.
WARNING: Wear eye protection when using compressed air.
- Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Be sure the rubber mounts are in place on the bottom of the radiator.
- After installation, fill the cooling system with the proper mixture of antifreeze and water. Refer to Chapter 11 if necessary.
UNIVERSAL JOINT | REPLACEMENT
(Refer to illustrations 13.2, 13.3a and 13.3b)
NOTE: A press or large vise will be required for this procedure. It may be a good idea to take the driveshaft to a repair or machine shop where the U-joints can be replaced for you, usually at a reasonable charge.
- Remove the driveshaft (see Section 12).
- Place the driveshaft in a sturdy vise, mark the shaft and yoke for proper reassembly and, using a hammer and punch, drive the snap rings off the bearing cups (see illustration).
- Place a piece of pipe or a large socket with the same inside diameter over one of the bearing cups.
Position a socket which is of slightly smaller diameter than the cup on the opposite bearing cup (see illustrations) and use the vise to force the cup out (inside the pipe or large socket), stopping just before it comes completely out of the yoke.
Use the vise or large pliers to work the cup the rest of the way out (see illustration).
- Transfer the sockets to the other side and press the opposite bearing cup out in the same manner.
- After the bearing cups have been removed, lift the U-joint from the yoke and thoroughly clean all dirt and debris from the yokes on both ends of the driveshaft. Be sure to remove any metal burrs from the yoke bores.
- Pack the new U-joint bearing cups with grease, this will allow the needle bearings to be held in place while you're installing the bearing cups. Ordinarily, specific instructions for lubrication will be included with the U-joint servicing kit and should be followed carefully.
