5 year aluminum radiator replacement
While reading all the radiator information in the Radiator.com web site I found a paragraph that stated any leaking aluminum radiator should be replaced, and should anyway if its over 5 years old even if its not leaking.
Anyone ever heard of replacing a radiator every 5 years whether its leaking or not? Mine is 9 years old and has been seeping between the plastic tank and the core and was thinking I needed a new radiator but also read that a good repair shop could re-seal the tank with a new gasket. Anyone ever heard of or had this done to an older radiator?
