No, it is not hard. If your vehicle has a Automatic trans you will generally need a metric flare nut wrenches,drain pan, basic metric tools, antifreeze. Start by removing neg battery cable, remove any radiator decorative plastic covering if so equipped, then one end of lower hose, use a drain pan to catch fluid, remove connector for electric fan and remove fan, or remove fan clutch and fan,whichever you have,remove fan shroud if equipped, remove both rad hoses, using the flare nut wrenches remove atuomatic trans cooler lines is so equipped ( this is the hardest part if the lines are real tight- that is why these wrenches are needed) remove fasteners that hold rad in place. Reverse procedure, fill with coolant and keep cap off while it idles for 15 minutes to insure that all air is bled out. Done. I hope this helps you. Mark

Hard water, and calcium can build up insite the hoses and get released in chungs during the flush process. These pieces can get caught in the thermostat and cause it to fail.
