    It's a 1999 Saturn SL1. Third radiator I've had to put in and I've drove it for four years now. They're flawed in design. They use a combination of metal and plastic. Aluminum fins and coil, plastic side tanks. Plastic and metal never mix in my opinion as metal expands and contracts more with heat than plastic. I saw all kinds of late 90's Saturns this winter with the same rad leak in the same place as on mine. It's right where the plastic tank flanges up against the metal. You can try re-crimping the tanks but I did that and it didn't work and since I need this car to do a good bit of highway driving when I go home I just said I guess I've got to put a new radiator in.

    Concentrations crappy. It's got Dexcool, and gas station 50/50. I know I could have saved myself some money if I just fixed it in the first place. I just had some hope that I could get it to hold for the next few months as I stated earlier.
    The plastic tank design can be carried off correctly, as there are a lot of higher end cars that use that design. The saturn is another story. Great idea on paper, but the car suffered a lot until recently.

    Maybe you can find a radiator out of a rear end collsion car.

    Andy had a blast. I Karen had never been to the Circus before she had a blast to.
    One of the vendors in with the Circus said there were 300 people that Travel with the Circus.
    Never been to the circus myself. I used to watch a program on TV that had a circus every week, hosted by Don Ameche.

    My dad said the circus smelled better on TV!!!!!

    Tried a couple junkyards down where I go to school and they didn't have a starter or a radiator. My car won't even turn over sometimes when I go to start it. I have to take a 1" combo wrench and if I have to my mini mag and give it a tap to free it up. Funny thing is I have to do that once in a while. It could be good for a month before I have to do it again. Hopefully I can get away with that until June.

    Sounds like a set of starter contacs is in order. You can get them from an auto electric place and install them yourself.

    Today's gold medal game in Men's Olympic Hockey will be the 'most watched show in Canadian History'....it will beat that last USA/Canadian hockey game which was the previous record only days ago. Get this ... tickets for the game of going for $10,000 each and at the opening face off they think some tickets will go for $25,000.....higher than any MLB, NBA playoff, NFL/Superbowl game in history....
    Yep, we take hockey seriously.....

    Go Canada Go.........
