This radiator is an exact fit and installed easily. Be sure to save the clip-nuts from the old one, since you will need them on the new one. Change the hoses, too. It's easy once you have the fan and radiator out.

8 months and 14k miles later and it is LEAKING coolant at the trans cooler hookup, NOT GOOD. I would expect a part of this kind to last 3-5 years or more without incident. I should note that both radiator and trans hoses were replaced and new coolant was installed
Replaced an OEM that went 148K miles. Install was easy, except for the missing replacement clips/screws (old ones were badly rusted).
Note: A FEW PENNIES to include some replacement hardware WILL make this a COMPLETE product, and keep your customers happier.

    When installing you will have a connection problem on the upper driver side of the radiator and condenser. You may have to open the bottom mounting hole for the through bolt as I did.

    Comments about ToughOne or Ready-Rad Radiator:

    This is getting OLD... 5 radiators in a 1-1/2 years. Same problem each time, COOLANT leakage/seepage at the UPPER trans line connection. No help from the local store, just swap out another --- oh well! Hoping customer care hotline will come through, most other part stores in the immediate area carry the same MFG part,.,. :-( what a bummer...

    Did notice that some of the previous negative reviews with the same problem are now GONE!!!???

      Ac condenser does not fit right had to bend clips at top and could only put one screw in at bottom because the ac condenser would not line up in holes so I had to zip tie one side. If you know what you are doing you will have no problem.
