2003 Chrysler Voyager 3.3 V6 radiator replacement. It is very easy to remove the old radiator if you remove the coolant reservoir first as you need to angle the raidiator to lift it out. The new radiator fit perfectly, I mean perectly!! Everything lined up just as it should. A little Vaseline on the lower rubber mounts will help the in installation. I did reuse the original radiators top plate because it had a rubber seal already riveted to it. Took me about an hour to do the replacement and I wasn't in any hurry.

Advantage reported exact fit for Chrysler Town&Country 2002 3.8L. Overall disappointed due to additional tweaks and adapters I had to get.

Overall, get a better match. Got to install it and works but should be simpler with better match.

I had already extracted old and took to store to compare with new; previous online purchase. Differences were not evident. I would check other brands for better match first.

No rail/base at bottom, had to pull the one from the old one to ensure good sitting. Missing nuts for original screws (used old ones) but there was no easy way to set them (hold/secure them) in new radiator to install screws.

No rubber seats at bottom (compared to original). Depth of bottom structure is larger, cushioning would not work. Unsure of long-term impact.

Once installed, realized overflow outlet different diameter than original. Much smaller than original. Too small to use clamp on original tube connected to reservoir. I had to get piping adapters 5/16 and 1/4, 1 foot of 5/16 hose and some clamps.

I was able to install but had to overcome unexpected issues and trips to get adapters to resolve hose issue.

Comments about ToughOne or Ready-Rad Radiator:

This was a perfect fit for my 2001 3.8 V6 Chrysler Town and Country. It took about an hour and I was not hurrying. Trickiest part was getting bumper off. Drain radiator. Front AC radiator unbolts from main radiator and you can leave it (AC one) in place. Two electric fans unbolt from rear of main radiator with one screw each and you can leave those in place too. Unhook upper and lower big hoses. Jiggle and wiggle everything (fans, AC radiator and main radiator) until it comes out. I found pulling up driver side helped. New one goes back in.

        Comments about ToughOne or Ready-Rad Radiator:

        Only had it a ciuple of weeks so not sure how good it is. Seemed to be made about the same as the original just a few minor differences.

        Installation took over 3 hours because of all the stuff that needed to be removed. We pulled the front fascia off, requiring headlight removal, upper radiator support removal, bottom of fascia bolt removal, removal of the belt cover and removal of nut and bolt on each side attaching it to the fender. Then the electric fans were removed from the radiator although they were seeminly always in the way during removal/installation. Then removal of the bolts that mount it to the condenser was also necessary along with both upper and lower radiator hoses. I think lastly was the hood latch.

        You have to snap on a few bolt retainers that come with the new radiator. You also have to snap the old rubber piece that covers the top of both radiators back into the new one but the holes on the new one were too small diameter so the plastic push-in screws wouldn't go in easily and one even broke off. But with a little patience and perseverance it was an overall easy job. Best of all, now there's no more leaky radiator.

                    Dropped it in my 04 Grand caravan the other day, no problems what so ever. Just remove the coolant res. first to give you that extra clearance.

                      I installed this product in my vehicle not seven months ago. It not only has started leaking, but leaking to the point that my van overheated and left my wife and children stranded on the highway. What do I need to do to get a replacement radiator? I can not drive my van to the store saying that it will not hold coolant long enough.

                        Hi Tntinker, glad to assist you! This part carries a limited lifetime replacement warranty. The limited lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.

                        Place the fan shroud into the clips on the lower radiator support and install the two upper shroud retaining bolts. Position the shroud to maintain approximately 0.38(in.) radial clearance between the fan blades and the shroud. Connect the radiator hoses and close the radiator petcock.
