Good radiator - satisfied

Replacement for 1990 C1500 truck. Bolted right in, works fine, satisfied. Easy to install, does what it should, and the price was reasonable - especially with an Internet coupon.

There is a port below the Radiator cap that is not used on my 1991 chevy 1500; therefore a rubber cap shipped with the Radiator has to be used. Cheep cap broke around the worm clamp. lucky for me I had just got home. The Radiator does a good job cooling with no other problems at eight months use.
This is what will leave you on the side of the ROAD.

    Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

    Very easy to install, all the brass fittings were good to go with regards to the transmission and oil line hook up.
    Just remember to keep your old radiator for the plugs in case you need to replace one soon.

            I was a little disappointed when I picked up the radiator and found the box was open and there was some damage to the fins. When I purchase a new item at full price, I want it to be in new condition. I works, it doesn't leak. I guess it's okay.

              Installed this radiator in my truck. Easy to install for the DIYer. This will be my third radiator in this truck which has 304,000 miles on it. I liked the price of this radiator, I don't need to put pricey parts on my old truck.
