    Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

    Installed into 2000 Town Country. No problem. Take note which side your radiator exits back to engine. I had to return wrong radiator.
    It cone with drain valve and clips to attach back onto fans. Wish it also included some new bolts. Some of mine were a bit rusted. I used clip ties.

    Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

    The radiator had no drain hole. No sign of where a plug could be installed. I don't know if this was a manufacturer oversight or if it is this way on purpose. I'm returning it and trying some other stores.

    Cheap radiator missing drain

    Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

    I needed to replace the radiator on a 1997 Town and Country. Picked up this unit from Advance Auto for the price match of another store. The radiator had the hardware needed to attach the cooling fans and transmission cooler nipples but this radiator had less cooling tubes and was only 1 1/4" thick vice the 1 1/2 " thickness of the OEM. Also, in order to intall the cooling fans, the holes would need to be elonged 1/8 to 1/4". But the kicker was that the radiator had no drain hole. No sign of where a plug could be installed. I don't know if this was a manufacturer oversight or if it is this way on purpose. I'm returning it and trying some other stores. Considering Chysler wants $510 for an OEM radiator, this was a steal @ [$]. Too bad it didn't meet OEM specs.

        A:

        Hi T/C, sorry for the inconvenience caused. I would suggest that you purchase a transmission oil cooler adapter (fitting) 3/8 to 5/16 size for your project. A transmission oil cooler adapter in 3/8 to 5/16 size is currently unavailable online. I would suggest that you visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store to check the availability of this part.
