The actual radiator itself seems fine. But there are two areas of concern, especially for an inexperienced mechanic. 1. The ridge on the inlet and outlet is smaller than factory, so if you use the factory spring-type hose clamps, you risk having your hose blow right off the rad under system pressure. Using aftermarket clamps will prevent that. 2. The transmission cooling line connection on the left (driver's side) is angled about 45 degree. It should be straight. It completely changes the routing of the formed factory line and actually has to be repositioned just to attach the line. Angles into the engine mount beam.

    need nuts for the fan that attach to the radiator because the old ones was rusty and had to be cut which took long for the install and trip back to the auto store.

                        I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                        Had this issue with replacing the radiator with my Honda. The trany cooler is a closed off pipe that just runs through the radiotor and doesn't require a connection. Hope that helps.
