Welcome to this forum! I've renamed, and moved your thread to the Ranger section. There are hoses, and bolts holding it in place. Just look it over. It's a straight forward repair. You could get a radiator from WWW.AutoCoolRadiators.Com or WWW.RadiatorBarn.Com.

Radiator removal & installation instructions for the 2000-2005 Rangers.

Thanks for posting the link. Here's a copy of it:

2.3L Engines:

Drain the cooling system.
Disconnect the coolant overflow hose from the radiator, position the hose away from the radiator.
Disconnect the upper radiator hose.
Remove the cooling fan and shroud.
Disconnect the lower radiator hose.
Remove the bolts, tilt the radiator back and lift it directly upward.
Remove the three pushpins and the plastic cap from the top of the radiator channel.

To install:

Install the plastic cap and the three push pins on the top of the radiator channel.
Position the radiator into the engine compartment and install the bolts.
Install the lower radiator hose to the radiator.
Install the cooling fan and shroud.
Install the upper radiator hose to the radiator.
Position the coolant overflow hose in the channel on top of the radiator, then connect the hose to the radiator.
Fill the cooling system.
Operate the engine for several minutes and check the hoses and connections for leaks.

2.5L, 3.0L & 4.0L Engines:

Drain the cooling system.
Remove the air cleaner outlet pipe.
On 2.5L, disconnect the electro-drive fan wiring connector, if equipped.
Remove the two screws. Lift the fan shroud out of the lower retaining clips and drape it on the fan blade.
Remove the rubber radiator overflow hose or radiator vent hose.
On 3.0L and 4.0L engines, remove the cooling fan shroud.
On all models, remove the upper and lower radiator hoses.
Disconnect the two transmission cooling lines, if equipped.
Remove the screws and tilt the radiator back and lift it directly upward.


To install:

Position the radiator into the engine compartment and install the bolts.
Connect the two transmission cooling lines to the radiator oil cooler fittings if equipped.
Reinstall the constant tension clamps in the same position from where they were removed.
Install the upper and lower radiator hoses.
On 3.0L and 4.0L engines, install the cooling fan shroud.
On 2.5L, install the rubber radiator overflow hose or radiator vent hose.
Install the fan shroud and the two screws.

On all models, install the air cleaner outlet pipe.
Refill the engine with coolant.
