About three months ago, I knew that this vehicle was going to be due for a California Smog Check by the end of August this year. I started working on it to help it be ready for the check. Once I got all of that done (it passed the Smog check easily), I started thinking about doing some maintenance on the truck that I wasn't sure had been done. So, the first thing I thought about was the coolant. I had no idea when the last time it had been changed out. I read up on it a bit and discovered that there should be DexCool in the system, which is orange in color. The coolant that was in truck was green. Green shouldn't be in there, so I decided to change it out.
So, for the first time on my blog, I'm doing a video post, instead of my typical written post with pictures. I shot it with my new video camera in HD (720p). I spent several hours putting together the video I shot. Please be kind if you have to make comments. I know that I made some mistakes in the video, called things the wrong names, but I think for the most part it will help you to understand the steps needed to replace your radiator if needed. In the video I explain why I ended up needing a new radiator. Hope you enjoy it!
