The radiator is not a hard job, but there's a fair amount of things to take out. If you're handy with tools, it will only take an afternoon. The radiator itself is like $60.

Here's a richpin video on its removal. Take a look and see what you think.

If you do go with a replacement, check your hoses, thermostat and water pump. If you're thinking long term - it might be worth doing them all at the same time since you're doing a coolant flush.
Thanks for the advice. Where do you suggest getting a radiator?

I'm getting better at servicing my car. Changed the oil and filter a few days ago, and changed the wheels around (what they usually call "rotating the tires" - phrase that does not make much sense to me, even though I know what people mean by that).

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
