    Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

    Luckily, my local store had this in stock. Had some difficulty installing due to the top holding bracket and putting the holding brackets back on but overall, it worked when I broke the neck off the original radiator while checking the coolant level. Truly an emergency repair. It's a shame the neck design (on the original radiator) doesn't allow any pressure be put on it to prevent having to replace the whole radiator when it does let go. Hope this one holds up better than the original radiator.

        It does what a radiator should do. Nothing special or bad about it. Only reason I bought it here was it saved me 50 bucks with a coupon

          overflow/suction port had mold slag creating a leak at the tube. not a biggie but if your trying to get it done quickly, this is a setback.

                A:

                This Ready-Rad Radiator - part# 432473 is designed to maximize surface area through a significant number of internal folds and chambers. As the hot engine coolant moves through these nooks and crannies, excess heat is drawn out through the walls of the radiator. An electrical or belt-driven fan may force cooler outside air through the radiator to accelerate this cooling process. As the car moves, the front of the radiator is also cooled by the outside air coming through the car's grill. 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.
