Replaced the radiator 

I recently noticed some coolant dripping on my driveway. Investigated and discovered that where the upper hose connects to the radiator was leaking. The top of the radiator is plastic and the part the the hose connects to has rotted and broke off. I purchased a new radiator on www.rockauto.com. for $87 plus shipping. While unpacking it discovered that the two nipples that the transmission cooling hoses connect to were bent and ruined from shipping. They weren’t protected properly. I removed my old radiator and I was hoping I could re-use the hose fittings on the new radiator. Of course they were different. I went to Autozone and had no luck. A salesman there suggested going to a specialty hose and fittings business. Googled it and found one nearby. They quickly made me new aluminum flared little pipes. I was so grateful to find a quick solution. Otherwise I was going to have to wait for a whole new radiator to ship and hope it would arrive in good shape and to not have use of my truck. Completed installation and all is well!

Total Cost: $130
