still need answers please
I am going to take it apart today, still could use some info specific to this engine! (Torque specs, pitfalls, what else to replace besides the thermostat). I'm not sure about replacing the fan bearing bracket!! My car is quite a bit newer than ctaylor's 300E; does this part still need preventative replacement on the 1996 engine (mine has 100k miles)? I think I'll replace the lower radiator hose; I noticed it vibrates around quite a bit while the engine is running.
