4.6 radiator

Tue Sep 17, 2019 10:45 pm

I've had a niggly little water leak for a while now, but seeing as the car doesn't get used much I've lived with it.
Seeing as winter won't be long coming I thought I'd investigate a bit more, turns out it's coming from the top edge of the radiator, so it looks lie a new one is needed.
Is this much of a job to do.

Not been using the beast lately so have put this job off, but after using it the other day it's getting worse, so time for a new rad.
Is it best to just get a service exchange unit from a local firm or buy a specific brand that is known to be ok.

I’ve had a Nissans rad on mine for a few years, says OE quality, about £100. Haven’t had any problems, there again I run at way less temperature and pressure than you probably do.
