1997 SL2
Default After 11 years, time to replace the radiator again

Hi gang,

As the titles says, it's time to replace the radiator. I went to Rock Auto to see what they have and they have radiators ranging in price from $49 - $130. Here's a link so you can take a look at what I'm seeing. Any suggestions on which one to get? I'm thinking the mid price range should be good, but I tend to over think stuff (just ask my wife). I'm also open to other websites for radiators if you want to toss some suggestions my way.

Thanks

How about one with a lifetime warranty, less than $48 delivered from CA?

DENSO 2219001

At least they are a well-known parts supplier that will be here when you have a warranty claim, and bonus, they have a QC department! For $55 you get a 1 yr warranty.

Default Re: After 11 years, time to replace the radiator again

When I needed to replace my radiator a few years ago, many members here highly recommended the Silla brand. So that's what I did. Looks like Amazon has them, and many other places too. Check for the right part number for your car.
Here's an old thread: http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...ighlight=Silla

Default Re: After 11 years, time to replace the radiator again

I can't believe radiators are still so cheap...I'm surprised some manufacturer hasn't figured out a way to make them bluetooth compatible, cost 1000 bucks, and replaceable every 3 years when your phone can't talk to your radiator any longer.

"Hey, look, my phone just told me I have a coolant leak"
