    Follow the radiator hose to the engine it goes to a housing secured to the engine with two bolts, drain the cooling system, remove the radiator hose at the housing, remove the heater hose that attaches to the housing, Book labor time is just over 1 hour. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info or there is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online
    and get an online repair manual subscription.

    I wish it was that easy. My engine is a 3.5 and not set up like that. I don't have two bolts where the upper radiator hose meets the engine. Autozone does not have an on-line manual for this vehicle.
