This is such a civilized place. It must be the Volvo market.

1-800-Radiators also provide a lifetime warranty and I had same day delivery.

The radiator mounts and engine mounts both have to be firm on these cars, or else the metal side can and plastic part separate and leak

Im also on my third radiator on my 1999

First one lasted 14 years 140k
Second Nissens about 80k, 6 years - I let it mount loosely and the metal/plastic failed
I put another Nissans in from FCP in last year at 220k

That looks rather bad. Is it possible someone tried a stop leak product?

Make sure to use at least distilled water during filling. Hard water makes for a pain in the rear later on.


Wisdom requires knowledge as a prerequisite, but knowledge can be developed due to a lack of wisdom.
In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.
