Getting the Wheeling Fever
Anyone know where to find a proper fitting radiator? I bought and returned 3 so far...from $68-$280 and they all suffer the same problem, the bottom tube ALWAYS sticks out so far it touches the AC clutch AND 66% of the time, the tube is at an entirely wrong angle making hose connection impossible without kinking it. 3.5L


I need help sourcing a replacement that's not $800. Please help.

Best bet is to look for an OEM unit on www.car-part.com and have it rodded or recored by a radiator shop. I found mine at a pick-n-pull for $40 and then had local shop rod it out and fix a few pin hole leaks for $60.

Have you checked on the Facebook group Mitsubishi Montero USA Parts Exchange page? There are guys parting out the different years all the time.

Need a Spot
I will be selling my upgraded OEM radiator once my aluminum one comes in. Rebuilt to a 3 row core with oem endtanks so no hose outlet issues. I'll be asking $400
