    Perfect fit, easy install, much better quality than original

    3 of 3 people found this helpful

    I had to change my radiator after many leaks came up. It seems the previous owner tightened the engine and transmission oil connections and stripped out the soft aluminum threading in the radiator. This replacement seems to use much stronger metals and better material all around. The included instructions were very easy to follow. Was told to flush with distilled water, so I bought 10 one gallon jugs to do so. Took about one to do the initial flush (before installing), one and a half to fill with the flushing liqiud, and then filled it with about 1 and 1/4 jugs of specified antifreeze. My engine runs a lot cooler, but it also fixed all of the leaks. It came with the transmission (fluid) oil fittings and they had high quality pins in them already, but I had to buy the engine oil fittings for about $10 each (needs 2). That wasn't a big deal. Just had to wait a day as he store didn't has them in stock. I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy, so the oil cooler fittings may cost more or less depending on your vehicle. Mine was part number 800-607 and is labeled as an "auto trans oil cooler", but it's the right part for the engine oil cooler. The actual auto transmission cooler fittings (which are included) are smaller. This is an easy fix nearly anyone can do.

    Pros: Easy to install, easy instructions included

    Cons: Didn't come with engine oil cooler fittings.

    Positive for the most part

    4 of 4 people found this helpful

    Product seemed solid but it appeared to be missing the rubber O rings for the transmission fittings. Compared to old unit and Youtube video which said to make sure you have the rubber O ring for fittings. New one had fittings but lacked the rubber O rings. Had some in shop so not big deal for me but maybe for someone else. J. S.

    Pros: Radiator seemed to fit well and was easy to install but the test will be if it last but I've been please with Autozone purchases in the past

    Cons: When I got the radiator I compared it to the past radiator and appeared to be missing rubber O rings for transmission fittings.

    I am very satisfied with the product and also with the service I always receive at the store.

    Pros: Went right in with no changes and perfect fit. It was exactly what my truck needed.

    Cons: I would like to see a thicker core for more cooling here in the desert.
