I would be more concerned with the 10 year old aspect of the radiator.
The leak IS repairable. However, given the age of the part, the
is high that there's enough contamination and deterioration of the
to warrant replacement of the unit....instead of enacting a repair of
original equipment part.
You should be aware that not only the engine's cooling, but also a
cooler...(if you have an automatic tranny) is integrated into the
trans cooler is likely contaminated after 10 years of service.
(Let's not even carry this thread to a debate over how often you've
eng. coolant and tranny)
As far as supplier, imo....when it comes to a radiator the supplier
first concern. It's the warranty. I've found the discount places like
ole AutoZonedOut store to be fine on radiators. Again, jest price shop
be more concerned with the length of warranty.
THANKS,, I'LL REPLACE.. LOOK FOR WARRANTY OVER PRICE, ALSO READ WHERE IT IS
RECOMMENDED TO BUY EXTERNAL TRANNY COOLER AND PLACE IT ON FRONT.. THIS BURB
HAS A BRAND NEW TRANNY LESS THAN A YEAR OLD, WANT TO PROTECT IT.. THANKS
AGAIN GUYS.... PHILLIP
