This radiator fit my truck just like the original one. It needed no alterations at all. It came with new lower mounting pads and new transmission cooler line connections. You will need a special tool to disconnect your existing trans. line couplers. Quick, easy installation.

This radiator is the one Advance Auto says is for my truck. It did not work. Took it back had to get one from some where else. wasted a lot of time . Luckily my buddy owns a garage and he found the one I needed and installed it for me.

Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

It's hard to believe that a plastic radiator for a 1998 Dodge Ram truck would 1 be in stock, and two fit perfectly. I'm not sure what a limited lifetime warranty actually means. I'm gonna guess not much, same as another "warranty"

It was a 45 min job. perfect fit.

        Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

        Looks like a good replacement. This is the 2nd radiator in 18 years so not complaining but the plastic tanks seem to always crack at some point. The radiator fit fine but I had some alignment (slight) issues with the top support bolt holes. I think this adds extra stress on the radiator and could cause premature failure. Limited lifetime warranty though so happy it can be replaced in the future if it fails.

        Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

        I bought my radiator online so I was a little hesitant. Ihave always hated buying something I couldn't see before I paid fir it. The radiator fit perfect it was a really good surprise to see that it also came with a warranty. I felt really comfortable installing it knowing that it was a perfect match and I had warranty. I was able to look at it in the store and match it up to the original before leaving. I really liked that it didn't look cheap because I don't want to have to install a radiator again for awhile.

              • CUSTOMER CARE

                A:

                You need not worry about these ports, leaving them open will hurt nothing. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

            • Q:

              Leaking Transmission line on the fitting to the radiator side that came with the radiator... :( I've seen your comment about using an o ring or tape. I didn't get an O ring with the install kit in the box. Was one (or two) O rings supposed to be in there for the transmission fittings? I just used teflon tape tonight and will see if it still leaks when I drive the truck tomorrow. Also, there were no install instructions came with mine to point this potential problem out.

                A:

                These kind of fittings are of kind that expand, they further screw in. Try tightening with the O ring as long as they are tight enough. If this did not work then go for a thread tape or sealant.
