Easy swap out of old unit. Removed upper fan shroud, removed battery and battery box, this made it simple to get to trans lines, lower rad hose and heater hose. Removed old unit cleaned out lower shroud area dropped in new unit hooked lines and hoses back up, no modifications needed.
Refilled with new anti-freeze/coolant, finished in about 2 hours taking my time. Worked great on my 93 S-10 4.3L no oil cooler.

Ok Folks. This went into a 94 GMC sonoma with vortec V6 and auto tranny. Good news is that it fits. Bad news or at least weird news... The location pins are missing on the bottom corners of the tanks like the stock radiator. This model has the trans cooler but not the oil cooler. I do not have an oil cooler set up so got this radiator. The more expensive model with the oil cooler has the pins. Also this model has a weird extra port/plug that is blocked of with a cap and hose clamp. Seems likely to fail there eventually. Feel now that I should have spent the extra few dollars for the "exact" part.

                  • Q:

                    Hi, just making sure this radiator does not have ports for oil cooler or automatic transmission. Mine is manual shift without engine oil cooler. Thanks, Don.
