Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

Original radiator has 45° angle filler neck, this one sits straight up, upon realization I was worried but it fit without modification. Also I have a manual trans, so the intercooler is useless space and an extra fail point. Not for a show truck, but it gets the job done. -- On the review proccess: I unchecked my 'Not Oem stylefit' comment after it didn't include the forward slash. It didn't erase the line after several attempts.

      Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

      Great product very inexpensive, fast delivery and a breeze to install. I have been running it in over 100 degree heat since I installed it and it works great no overheating at all. The fit was factory perfect. I will be purchacing one for a older mini van I own. Buy one and you will not be sorry!

          • Q:

            I purchased this last Sat and I just put it in today, it is smaller than the original one and the shroud will not fit back in over it, the hose on the left top(looking at the above photo)prevents it from going down. What do I need to do?

          • Q:

            If I were to buy radiator part number 432009 and were takeing it out of the box ready to install in a truck. If I do not need the transmission cooling taps on the ritght side of the radiator, looking at the picture (apear as silver with red protective caps). Do these need to be pluged or are they pluged from the factory?

Ready-Rad plastic tanks can withstand 150,000 pressure cycles with no bowing, warping or twisting and is packaged with cooler fittings, fan shroud clips and mounting brackets to ensure proper installation and vehicle performance.

          • Q:

            I have a basic truck with out any accessories like oil cooler and such. Do the two tap offs on the right have plugs under the red caps? If not do you use regular pipe fittings or what should be used.
            Thanks

              A:

              The core charge is basically a deposit to ensure that your old part can be rebuilt. Once the part is received it will go to the manufacturer for testing to see if it can be rebuilt. If the part can be rebuilt you will receive the core credit back on the credit card you used to purchase the part.
