great product and price

i bought and install this radiator for my daughter 1997 pontiac grand am car. the repair shops wanted too much money, it wasn't easy, also it wasn't that hard to install.

Exactly what was needed!

This was an exact replacement for my old radiator. I only wish that the replacement radiator was entirely metal instead of a hybrid of metal and the plastic sections that failed on the original...Read complete review

      Looks and works just like oem. Can't comment on lifespan, it has only been installed a short period of time.

          The installation of the radiator went smoothly, except that the fittings for the transmission cooler lines did not match the fittings on the new radiator. Went to advanced and they helped me find the correct adapter and everything went smoothly from there.

            Easy installation, but I'm a fairly experienced gearhead. Someone used stop leak in the car previously and radiator was really clogged up. This new one sure does keep it cooler.

                      Why are the transmission line connections smaller than the fittings n the flared hoses that srew into it? Are there adapter fittings for this problem?

                        I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                        The mass produced aftermarket radiators found at all chain stores come pre-fitted to 1/2" transmission cooler lines. This is to cover a wider customer market without having a bunch of different ones in stock. The Grand Am and a few other models have 5/8" fittings. One retailer (not Advance Auto) provides an accessory pack that includes this part (x2 5/8" female x 1/2" male). Not only are they not provided, their also not available to purchase as far as I have found. Thanks Advance for not only putting me in a bind, but also costing me 3 days of work while you order the CORRECT one from Pontiac!

                        I would suggest taking the radiator to a local Advance Auto Parts to verify if you received the wrong radiator for your vehicle by mistake.
