Ok, got the new radiator in. More of a pain in the @$$ than I remember. Changed the oil, added some transmission fluid as some leaks when you disconnect to swap the radiator, then I overcharged my a/c. Got no boiling out on the way home, about 45 miles, but I did see some coolant on the top of the radiator near the cap. I had tested the water pump and it sprayed coolant everywhere, so I hope that's all it was. The a/c compressor is now clicking on and off constantly. Can I just evacuate some R134 until it's back to normal?

Got mine fixed Saturday. I had the old radiator out in just over an hour. (I have a 5 speed so I didn't have to deal with the trans line connections) Took more time going back in as I was being very careful not to damage the new one.

I also replaced my lower radiator hose as I had forgot I had cut it a little jagged when I replaced it last year when I replaced the timing belt, water pump & components.

Well now it seems the fan clutch is bad too. Got one ordered. In the future I might add an electric fan, just don't feel like messing with that right now.

I had thought hard about a flex fan but a friend talked me out of that idea.
