A couple of weeks ago made a trip to Vermont where the temps were around -5 and lower wind chills for two nights. On my way back I saw some steam coming out from the front of the hood and grill and noticed a small leak from the radiator. When I got back I started pouring in some stop leak and then thought better of it and decided I should just try to replace the radiator this weekend.
Iím getting the radiator and other parts (hoses, thermostat, and gasket) from NAPA since from what Iíve read so far there isnít an overwhelming recommendation on a single top radiator brand for the WJ. Is this true?
Itís my first time trying to replace a radiator but I think I have a good idea of how itís done, thanks to the forums and other websites. Is there anything else I need to disconnect besides the hoses and the electrical connection to the fan? Is there anything else I should look out for (other fluids leaking out)?
Another question I have is how do I let the air out after filling up the new radiator. Is there a bleeder in there somewhere?
Itís a 2004 WJ 4.0L.
