1999 Taurus 3.0L DOHC

I'm at 218,000 miles and I need to start thinking about/planning on my next part to fix

How easy is to replace this radiator? Do it yourself or a shop? Estimate $$$ Time it takes to complete?

Recommended aftermarket (Brands) or Ford?

Special tools needed?

I heard about bleeding the system but how?

Hoses: Just about all are original, except the Y-coolant pipe. Which ones should I just replace because of the mileage/age of the car?

Any suggestions, appreciated.

And the transmission cooler lines?

Thanks for all those suggestions.

Now, I have another question about the transmission cooler lines I am supposed to remove from the radiator. If I am draining the coolant what about the transmission fluid in these lines going into the radiator?

Thanks much,
Douglas
