Ready Rad Radiator for Ford E-150

I looked online for cheap radiators as this is the second time I will have put one in my old 1994 Ford E-150 conversion van. The first one came from eBay via Czechoslovakia. It was all metal and did last several years, but eventually split along the top and became unpatchable. There were some radiators available online via Miami, Florida, but they had to be shipped here. Upon checking AutoAdvance, they had a coupon which, if purchased online, brought the price down to within $9 of the cheap Miami price, plus I could pick up the radiator here at the store. I had to pay sales tax, but stil the price was within $20 of having it shipped here, and I got it right away. Now, will the newer aluminum and plastic construction hold up? We'll see.

I can only recommend this radiator for short term, temporary repair, if you're going to sell or junk it. The plastic top is separating from the tubes; top clamping tabs are stretching and separating from the top. The van was a 3rd vehicle for 1 1/2 yrs rarely driven and has been drive for work 6 months and if failed. Not worth the time and anti-freeze.

Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

The flanges where the J-nuts were to be attached were offset such that the clips didn't fit well and when tightening, put the flange in a bind.
Other than that. It was fine.

          this is a good radiator for the price but it comes with no fittings and no petcock so be sure to save your own,if it wasnt for the discount online I would have got it someplace else for about the same regular price with all the fittings and clips

            Radiator lasted less than 12 months before it started leaking all the way around the seal where the botton plastic cap is attattached to the aluminum body. The vehicle is only driven 80 miles/week in normal central Texas weather conditions.

              Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

              VITAL that your radiator be grounded. Otherwise, electrolysis may occur which can break doen welds in the metal core. You can test for current with an multimeter. Ground one probe and put the other in the coolant at the top of the radiator without touching the radiator neck. If there is more than 0.1 volt, your radiator needs grounded.
