Step 1 Park your vehicle on a level surface and apply the parking brake.


Step 2 Start by removing the coolant reservoir. It is secured at three mounting points. Unscrew the three Phillips screws that secure the reservoir to its mounting points


Step 3 On the bottom of the coolant reservoir is the coolant level sensor. Remove the connector end by pressing back on the release tab and pulling the connector end off of the reservoir


Step 4 Locate the air inlet that is connected to the radiator support and air box. Remove the two Phillips screws that secure the inlet shroud to the radiator support. Once the screws have been removed, lift up on the rear portion of the air inlet that connects to the air box. Remove the shroud and the air inlet from the vehicle



Step 5 Locate the block breather hose under the intake manifold. Remove the clip that secures the breather pipe to the block breather


Step 6 At the other end of the hard black breather pipe is a rubber tee.  Remove the clamps that secure all of the breather pipes to this rubber breather tee
