I have a leaking issue... :(

So, today after thinking that my top radiator hose was loose and just losing a little bit of fluid... Turns out, my radiator is cracked... So I ordered a new one today, but it said something about having to get under the car and installing it from the bottom... I would much rather go from the top, and it didn't look like it would be that bad. But Idk... Has anybody fooled with this before? Any help for a rookie??

Thanks again everyone!

Changing the radiator is super easy. You do it from the top. Its a bit easier to loosen the oil and transmission cooler lines from the bottom but you can do it from the top. You will probably have to take off the bottom coolant line from the bottom. I would recommend getting new coolant hoses and clamps well you're at it. The fan and radiator all come off as one piece and then you put the fan on the new radiator before installing it. It shouldn't take you more then an hour or so to do the whole job. Make sure the coolant cock is tight before putting in new coolant.
