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 CARQUEST Radiator:

All I can say is "don't buy this radiator". Even though it is covered by a limited lifetime replacement warranty, I will be demanding a full refund. Not going through this again. My original radiator lasted for 13 years and this junk could not even last for 1 year. I guess it keeps the mechanics busy replacing radiators.

          This radiator lasted for 16 months. I am not sure what the life of a typical, quality radiator is, but I have to believe that it is more than 16 months. The failure point is where the tubes go into the tank.

                The product itself is good, but not "exactly fit". The inlet size for Recovery Tank is smaller than original one. The reason I put 3 stars is: When I open box, I found one of the plastic portion for inserting fan was broken. Since I was already remove the old one out from my car, I had to use the "broken one". Otherwise, I think I will put at least 4 stars.

                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.

                    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.
