The radiator was bought as a direct fit for a 1999 Chrysler Town & Country. It is tough to get access to the radiator to ac condenser mounting bolts without evacuating AC system, but I did it. Went to install replacement and had trouble aligning bolts back up only to find the holes drilled 1/8" off from original. Wasted an hour and got very frustrated trying to make it fit until I compared the original. Used a small chainsaw file to slot the holes to get it in. Once in, the overflow hose barb and hold down clips are too small. Had to over crush the hose clamp or buy adaptor. The drain petcock is not identical, so if that goes bad in the future there will be no replacement.

    Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

    Radiator fit very well in my Dodge Caravan. Did have to space the condensor out as the bolt holes pulled the condenser in to tight against the side tanks on the radiator. This radiator is a little difficult to install compared to other vehicles only because of the design of the van not the replacement radiator. Very happy with my choice of replacement radiator.

            The only hickup I had was the missing Transmission Oil Cooler Like O-ring. The local Advance here had an assortment with the right size for an additional $4.00. My Dyear old son and my 7 year old daughter installed it with me in a leasurly 4 hours or so including distractions. It was at my door 2 days after order. I'd buy it again.

                  what size flared wrench will I need for the trans lines going to radiator?

                    A:

                    I'm glad to assist! I don't see any need for a flaring wrench from my research on the 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3L V6 Flex-Fuel VIN: G. On this ToughOne or Ready-Rad Radiator (Part No. 431406), the inlet and outlet of the cooler should be .25". A replacement hose assembly for the cooler lines would only require clamps to make the connections. For more specific removal and installation instructions, I suggest purchasing a repair manual for your vehicle (Haynes Part No. 30011).

                    Also, you may want to pick up a quart of ATF+4 in case you lose any transmission fluid and some coolant. If your vehicle utilizes the green coolant, you could use Peak Conventional Green Antifreeze/Coolant (Part No. PKA0G3/12016) and distilled water. Peak Long Life 50/50 Prediluted Antifreeze/Coolant (Part No. PRA053) is a great option for a universal type coolant. If your vehicle uses an orange or yellow colored coolant, you'll want a HOAT (Hybrid Organic Acid Technology) type coolant. Our partner company, Carquest, carries Zerex G-05 Antifreeze. Zerex G-05 is a HOAT based coolant that meets Chrysler specifications.
