Question about a '95 RMW. The Low Engine Coolant light is on and today I actually saw a water pool under the radiator. Took it to a garage and they found the secondary fan had come lose and it appeared that the fan nicked the radiator and there was a fine streaming leak. This fan is still functioning and just needs to be reattached. But the radiator. Is there something that can be done short of buying a new radiator? Thanks.

No. If you want to really redneck it, you could take needle nose pliers and crimp off the tubes that are leaking.

I ordered my new radiator from Rock Auto after hitting the deer Christmas. Fast delivery, good product and great price!

Big price difference between lower end radiator and GM OEM. Anybody have experience on this?

Yes i do,.

i have found over the years that anything GM oem is constantly more expensive compared to lower end stuff.
I think maybe that why there is a huge supply of aftermarket parts available.
have you had any experience with this?

Well,

My original radiator cracked at the side tank in April at 150K.

I bought the replacement from automotive-cooling on ebay for about $70 shipped. It arrived well, was well packaged, and for the money I was satisfied. It seemed like a good quality radiator, and I think it actually is a good unit.

But:

The core was thinner than the original radiator. This necessitated some creative rigging and modifications including the supplied clips and the original clips to locate the top and bottom of the radiator. I did finally get it to work.

It had a drip for a little while, that I am pretty sure came from the radiator itself, but seems to have cured itself. I never found the source, so it could have been spilled fluid during the replacement.

There you go.
