A bunch of the sites I visited were "pay to ask". No, I didn't pay but previous answers to questions are posted. These guys charge 10 bucks up front and give BS answers. One of the questions was about the radiator petcock failing to seal and the "expert" said take it out and blow it off with air. If you remove it it's ruined and you have to buy a replacement. Somebody paid 10 bucks for that POS answer. Anyhoo, my arms just would not fit between the upper hose and the fan shrowd so something had to go. Only took a minute to pop out the three bolts holding on the t-stat housing. I'm sure someone who's eaten less linguini than I have could make it in there without movin' the hose out of the way. This is my first Dodge but I'm gettin' dirty.
