tiny terror If you think something might cross the line enough you have to mention the mods should delete, maybe it's best you refrain from posting it.

save_alkaline adding my vote for coolant. those stock radiators are junk. i had to do mine recently as well. the plastic on them is a weak spot.

daanbc Sweet smell = coolent. I had it on mine. I could not find a leak anywhere! I drained and put new fluid in, and checked it for 6-days. Not a drop was lost! Not even a wet spot. Then while I was putting on the body lift, I had to take the radiator off its supports. When I removed the fan shroud thats when I saw a small leak. It was from the top right corner of the plastic top. So I replaced the radiator while I was doing the lift.
