Fits 2003 Ford Ranger 4.0L with Auto. trans. OR Manual trans. Advance does not specify or qualify that in lookup but I find it to be (even though 1 reviewer claimed shroud would not fit as he had M.T. on his vehicle which he did not specify year, make, model, engine). Shroud should fit so just leave cooler ports plugged if you have M.T. and you are good to go. If you are a novice, now would be a good time to get yourself a remote cable hose clamp pliers to ease spring clamps off & onto the plastic inlet and outlet. You may want a small worm screw clamp for the reservoir tube as the hose may have taken a slight set to old neck fitting. Now is a good opportunity to flush coolant and install new hoses, thermostat, and radiator cap as required. Again, new radiator cap not included with radiator but old should fit. JON-HEY/ USA

I chose this radiator for my small truck because it was what AAP had and my stock radiator was leaking. The FIRST time I replaced it the new one started leaking within the first 2 weeks. Took it back and exchanged it for a new one and chalked it up to a defective part. No problem. Installed the SECOND one and now a year later, it is leaking again...somewhere around where the plastic holding tank seams up with the aluminum. Save your money, time and aggravation by getting a different brand. Look for Spectra or Visteon.

                      why is there a 1" deep versus a 2-1/4" deep radiator?

                        A:

                        Happy to help with your question Gregg! There may be different depth radiators depending on the grade and options that came with your vehicle. For example a truck may require a larger radiator because it came with a towing package versus the base model that came with a normal sized radiator. You can enter your vehicle information and check under specifications tab to get more information to determine with one you need.
