Radiator is a good buy

The factory OEM bolts that hold the radiator and the fan box together won't work with the new radiator. The nuts supplied don't thread with the OEM bolts, so you'll have to find something...Read complete review

    Not all after-market radiators are exact fit replacements. This one was, leading to no required modifications. A great product at a great price.

      Best Uses

        Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

        3 rads later one that isint leaking so far.
        even thou all rads same brand/type, one had differnet fittings.
        all required m6 bolts(missing) and thin m6 nuts(first rad missing one) and you also need lock washers.
        first rad leaked at transmission fitting
        second rad busted bottom tank.
        third holding up.
        be prepared to waste coolant and transmission fluid as all the drains or useless.
