Replacing Radiator
My co-worker hit a raccoon with his '09 4.0 Mustang. His radiator was damaged and needs to be replaced because it cannot hold the coolant. He didn't even save the raccoon to make a cool hat, but anyways...

He's ordered a new radiator and asked me to help install it. This is one job that I don't have experience with. Can anyone direct me to a good how-to? Any tips? Does the the transmission fluid (he has an automatic) need to be drained as well?

This should get you going...

Fairly straight forward job - trans cooler is separate from the radiator, it just unbolts

Id also recommend picking up a . Makes refilling & bleeding the radiator so much simpler.

Did said Raccoon survive? I have my own Raccoon tragedy story, want to hear it?
No! Well anyway here it is.

Came down a hill in Passco Wa. and in my lights were 7 of the critters around their squashed breakfast, they just stared at me, then panic set in. I'm in a Semi, long story short, one got away, only to be hit by an adjacent car. Next of kin have been notified, no damage to the Rig and I'm out of therapy thank you.
