Leaking radiator,2 cracks on the bottom.Removed tonight.

I have removed my 2008 Titan CC radiator tonight at 39xxx miles,5 years old and warranty expired few months ago.It's too dark to put the new one that I bought at Auto Zone for 230 bucks.It was hard but I did it.I will put on the new one tomorrow after work and will take a picture.How many of you guys had a crack radiator and how much did it cost you?Will give you guys some tips how it is done if needed.

I have a CSF (all aluminum) radiator and hoses stored in my garage just waiting for the same thing to happen to me. I've been on a lot of rough roads. I don't know how mine has lasted given the number members that have posted that theirs failed.

Make sure you test the transmission fluid to make sure of no anti-freeze/water back wash from the faulty radiator, since they both share the same area.

I checked the transmission fluid level and I did not see any anti-freeze on the dip stick.I will keep my eye on it .What's the best way to test it?Thanks.

Where did you buy your radiator?I should have bought one of those.I already installed the one I bought at Auto Zone and works pretty good.
