    In the process of changing out the exhaust yesterday I found traces of anti-freeze on my passenger radiator. Upon further inspection we found that the radiator and oil cooler had been over torqued which caused the plastic of the radiator to crack at the base of the mounts top and bottom. The fluid barely comes out but it makes me crazy thinking about the possibility of failure. Is there a source for used radiators?? What is a good guess at the price of a brand new radiator?? I never realized that the top and bottom were plastic!!!

    Mine had EXACTLY the same problem! Ended up getting a used radiator for $700 as the brand new ones are pretty costly!
