It is advertised as an OEM replacement, but the nuts on the side of this radiator are not the same size as the OEM raiator. I had to make an additional trip to the parts store to pick them up. The nuts and bolts are used to fasten the metal sides onto the radiator; you have to take the sides off of the OEM radiator and install them on this one.

      Radiator neck opening in different position than original - caused different hose length. Other than that it worked fine.

          Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

          This was a good value, but the mfg.s assembly method was different than OEM, so the sides did not fit properly into the OEM mount brackets. The actual mounting attachment points were accurately placed. So it was a bit of a fight to install. -But it did eventually go where it needed to.

            This was a replacement radiator ,the one that was in the car leaked. This radiator was easy to install, seems to be just as good as the original or better.

              This fit the bill perfectly. Lowest price I was able to find, Perfect fit. Buying on line and picking up in the store saved me around another $60.

                    Was able to order on line at a real big savings but was also able to pick it up myself at the local store so it could be installed right away. Am very pleased with the results.
