i cracked the radiator one day and my car started smoking real bad and all my coolant leaked out, luckily i was within a mile of my mechanic, i jus poured water in it and went straight there, anyways they wanted to charge me 550 bucks with a labor fee of only 130, i said fuck that and found a brand new radiator for 175 about 20 miles away and got it fixed for a total of 325 and i even told him where i bought the radiator, lesson to be learned, never buy parts from your mechanic, shop around on the net or call random ass shops cause you never know what they will have, this place was called a-1 radiator for all the oklahoma city members

Man my radiator neck cracked too etc. replace with the NISSENS made from denmark......suppose to be like oem etc....all the trouble and it still is leaking on the side from the epoxy joint where plastic attaches to aluminum.....GRRHHHHH.... Stay away from NISSEN radiators they're cheap!!!! I order some custom GRIFFIN all alluminum radiator! I hope these are good....for $500 they better be good right?
