Radiator goes .......
« on: July 04, 2010, 19:26:26 »

I am already missing my reliable old 83. Been driving the 1988 and it runs good, but would leak a little antifreeze once in a while, usually on longer trips and only after I parked the car.....The mechanic worked on it, but yesterday the radiator went and now it won't hold ANYTHING. We checked and the bottom seal on the radiator leaks and bad. I just got this radiator replaced a few years back....... :blink:

Wish I had.......This heatwave and the townhouse I live in make it rough for front yard repairs. Had to have it towed and by it was all said and done, a $500. bill ! I 've gone to the same shop for years, but this time I'm not happy.  Towing $90 for 2 miles ! Radiator $289. I have no one to blame by myself but this is a lesson well learned. To make matters worse, my Pentastar on the hood was knocked off :pound: :pound: :pound:

I'm sorry to hear about your radiator trouble Thomas.  :(  I do have an extra Pentastar if you need one.  - RR

Guys, I'll take you up on the offers.....Steve, I would love to have you do the Head Gasket and I'll pay you ! Reggie I really could use that Pentastar, it feels funny driving the car without it.
