It's a good replacement, it has the same size as the old one but it had two problems:the inlet ond outlet of the transmission oil are longer so it was hard to install one of them because the hose is short. The hole of the radiator was wider than the cap so I had to scrape it a bit.

1st of all I want to clarify that I spend couple of days finding the good old copper radiator without any luck. I guess producers don't want to manufacture durable radiators anymore. Maybe for 5 years only... Pros: [...] It's really light weight (all plastic and aluminum). Cons: It's really all plastic an aluminum :) I think the whole thing will brake (due to the pressure and the heat) or shaken apart (the aluminum is bent over the plastic top and bottom). [...] I still had to install it (need to admit, it was easy) but I had to replace 1 screw of the fan (additional $3) becase the bracket is all plastic and to make it stronger they made it thicker. So I had to have a longer one. Also the whole thing a bit shorter so I had to bend the frame a bit to get a tight hold. The most important disappointment: the 2 hoses for the automatic transmittion lubricant: in the original radiator it was soldered so not possible to leak. On this one it's actually has a nut to connect (made out of copper). The incoming line still leaks (I can not tighten it anymore bacause it would brake (check torque!)). If anything changes I'll add it here later.

Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

After replacing the hoses, frozen themostat and refilling the new radiator we discovered a noise in the engine perhaps a rod bearing.
The engine noise has nothing to do with the great fitting radiator. It came about because the driver only checked his oil once a month or so - take that as a warning check your fluids each time you fill the tank.

                    Hi Andrew, unfortunately we do not have a compatible radiator cap for the ToughOne or Ready-Rad Radiator - Part No. 432359 available online. We do have the OE radiator cap which is the ToughOne Radiator Cap - Part No. 10241 available however. I would recommend that you check with the nearest Advance Auto Parts store or call us toll free at: 1-877-238-2623 and one of our Part Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

                  This radiator comes with two lose metal tubes that need to be attached to the radiator in order to use the transmission oil cooling. Do I need to put any sealant when connecting the tubes onto the radiator?

                    A:

                    With reference to this Ready-Rad Radiator -part# 432359, it is not necessary to use any sealant when connecting the transmission cooler lines onto the radiator. Remove the old lines by taking off the nuts with a flare nut wrench. Replace the lines, using the old nuts to attach them to the transmission and radiator. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

                    The Griffin Radiator Cap (Part# KM-75) should fit your vehicle. However, this product is universal and not a direct fit. Some modifications may be required for proper installation.
