Change my Radiator?

So I took my '04 Armada to the dealer for the 150k miles maintenance. When I came back the advisor has a list of "problems", your looking arround $3900 he says... Too many to mention but I already took care of most of them (thanks people at CA!!!) I still need to change my radiator tough. I ordered online, I got it today just needs some tips since I've never changed one.

By the way Out of 8 problems I fixed 5 already, I spend $0 dlls, the other 3 I order the parts (radiator $125, Power steering presure hose $135, Break booster $130) so $490 Vs. $3900

I might ask for more help once I get the other parts... lol Thanks

Kailo, that thread saved my *** this past Sept the day before we had to leave for VA to attend a wedding over the weekend. Although it didn't save me from tearing my ACL during a b-ball game the day before the wedding, lol, we got to and from VA safe and sound without any issues.

Thats why I say "Club Armada is the Best"!!! Before I run to dealer or mechanic I always do a search here and get idea of what to do..

JOB DONE!!!! that threat was great!!! Thanks Kailo. I changed it yesterday, Im a begginer so this took me about 3 hours but I got done. I also replace the back up buzzer for my rear sensors. Dealer wanted to charge me $240 to replace it, I bought OEM part for $60 and replace it my self in 5 min with some help from people here at CA.com. What can I say I'm loving it!!!

I love this site as well, guess I got an idea on how easy it will be to change out my radiator, that is my next project. I should probably go get a vehicle inspection done so I can have the dealership find any other potential problems, if any.
