Radiator Restricted
#1
Found problem with cooling system and Y losing coolant and thumping after engine off. Radiator is restricted on bottom 3rd. Cool to touch while top full temp. It did flush out clean before I installed it, but it sat for 6yrs and must have been filled to that level and scaled inside. It's a 3-row radiator. Has anyone replaced one for under $300.

I replaced mine with a universal aluminum one from Jegs. It does not have the heat exchanger for the trans so I plumbed the cooler I had directly.
