My long awaited radiator transplant!

Recommended Posts

For those who dont know, my grand prix managed to rupture right behind the fans at the botton of the core, ive been having to add 3 gallons of water per trip to get from work, then again to get back home. well, my 99 SE donated her radiator to the cause. And as of around 9pm tonight, Red is up and running like nothing was wrong :rofl: Thanks to cmessick for his hard work and willingness to do this for sh*ts and giggles, so... heres some photos :)

Almost got it out of Black!


cmessick...ugh...celebrating the freeing of the radiator....


2 days later - Red's radiator comes out, much easier with experiance we got removing Blacks.


Blacks radiator in place and ready to be hooked up to the wiring harness and have all the hoses attached!


Its best... well... was easier to disconnect/reconnect the lower trans line with it...well up.


Mr. Messick.... well... i dunno what the hell he was doing.


Both Radiators out... we were trying to check clearance to see if the larger fans from the 99 would clear the exhaust mani. They do. :)


WTF cat in my car.


This whole project was stretched over two days, we both learned alot. And best of all, my car is running great again!!!
