Either a bad product or just bad service

I had to cut trans fluid hookups and reset to fit, pretty much doubled the install time... Not satisfied at all.

Does the job

Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

Fits and works. However the plastic bleeder bolt at the bottom is not very strong. Be careful overtightening it. Mine broke.

        Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

        This radiator is a direct replacement for the factory radiator. My original one started leaking transmission fluid from the lower cooling line, which in turn started breaking down the lower radiator hose. The lower radiator hose started leaking coolant as well. This radiator seems to be very well made and comes with a lifetime warranty. IMPORTANT, anytime you change a radiator be sure to flush the cooling system prior to installing the new one. This replacement DOES NOT come with a new radiator cap, but I bought a new one to install. I also replaced the upper and lower radiator hoses. My vehicle has around 111,300 miles and the radiator, hoses and radiator cap were all original parts.

          I purchased this item as a replacement for an older radiator part. The part fit perfectly. It keeps my car cool at high operating temperatures. The product performs just like original manufactures equipment.

                  • Q:

                    I am interested in buying this radiator, cause mine keeps leaking, but when I purchase it, can you suggest a place to take it to have it installed? I am on disablility and cannot afford hundreds of dollars. And I need this bad, I have stopped the leak twice already with stop leak for radiator and it has worked great, but I think its about to leak again.. My check engine came on and the only time it does is when my radiator is about to start leaking again cause once I fix it , the light goes off.. Then again maybe its not.. Thanks for any info you can give me,, Have a great evening... Oh and what kind of tools would I need, if I had someone do it, that just works on cars... Not at a building.. Thanks, Cherie
