I bought this product for replacing radiator in my 1998 Honda Accord. To my surprise, the product does not have a drain plug. So, now I will have to disconnect the hose every time I need to replace the coolant. In addition, OEM Cap from my original Denso radiator did not fit, so I had to make few trips to the store and phone calls to figure out the right cap. I have it in my car for a week now, and it does its job. If you don't mind the cons above, you can buy this product. I ranked the product below average as it is not an exact replacement as it claims to be.

    Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

    This Denso radiator really was an exact fit. Everything lined up perfectly and there was no " bend it to fit and paint it to match " required. As a retired ASE master mechanic I have seen my fair share of "exact fit " parts that were anything but, so it was greatly appreciated when it fit as advertised. The upper and lower tanks appeared to be of equal thickness and quality as original and the aluminum core was free from damage to the cooling fins. Transmission cooler line fittings were included and all threads were free from defect.

      Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

      The first radiator I received from the parts store was a little banged up. The fins on the radiator were messed up and it looked like it was twisted. My mechanic saw this and called the store and requested another one. So the little parts truck from the store brought another one out with in like 10 mins and took back the other one. So Ive had the radiator 2 months and so far so good.

          Before you buy this radiator, look for the sticker on your current radiator. It will tell you which stock brand to use. The sticker is near the pressure cap. This radiator came with a drain plug, and I replaced it using all the existing hoses and caps. Easy to install, took a casual 2 hours.

          Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

          After reading a few of the other reviews of this product, I was hesitant to purchase it. I decided to give it a chance and found that it is a good low-cost replacement part. Contrary to what I read, there is a drain in the factory location, all of the mounting tabs aligned decently, and my stock radiator cap fit perfectly. I think the dimensiona are slightly off as the radiator moves in its mounts a bit more than the stock one did, but I would not say that it is anything that will be detrimental. My radiator was a Denso, and this was supposed to be a direct replacement. I'm guessing many of the negative reviews were of people that bought the wrong replacement as there are 3 choices! Seems to work just as well as the stock radiator. However I have only had it in for a couple days. I will update if anything goes wrong, but i think it will be fine.

          I went through two Ready rad radiators. Both of them leaked at the seam on top. After paying my mechanic twice for labor, I finally had to get a refund and go with another brand.

          Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

          This radiator is not an exact match so you have to buy a rad cap too. Advance auto did not know what cap it needs. You have to know what size of the rad cap or the Advance auto guy will sell you the wrong one. In summary, the price was right for an aftermarket replacement.

              This part will not fit 100%, the two retainer(under the bottom of radiator) is adjustable however even you rise them up to the highest position you will still have 1" lower than original one that will not hold the retainer tab from fan.
