<orig. post.....start of thread>
A friend of mine, who is savy under the hood, looked at my Blazer last
night. After some inspection, we found some corrosion around the water
inlet neck for the upper radiator hose. Scrapping off some of this
corrosion sent a steady stream of water/antifreeze shooting out.
Ordering the part today.
My Blazer uses the orange antifreeze. After 40,000 miles, my cooling
system was a disgusting mess. We are flushing the radiator while we have
everything apart. I did not think I would have needed to flush my
radiator until 60k. I have a feeling this contributed to the corroded
hole in the inlet neck.
Anyone seen anything like this before?
I take it, from your second post, that your
warranty will not cover the radiator. bummer.
good luck with the repair....
let ust know how it goes.
