Does anyone have any advice for replacing the radiator in a '95 GT? The plastic is cracked and there is a slow coolant leak. The cost of repairing it and getting a new one is about the same. I wanted to save some money and buy the new one and put it in myself. Any info would be great!

Thanks,

Ram

Just Replaced Mine 2 Weeks Ago In My 98gt, Got A New One W/ Lifetime Warranty From An Online Vendor, Delivered In 2 Days, Shipping Included For $128, Old One Had Crack In Radiator On Drivers Side Above Coolent Hose Connection, I Am Pretty Sure 95 Engine Bay Would Be About The Same But On Mine I Had To Remove The Battery And Fuse Box To Get Enough Room To Pull Old Radiator Out, Also Make Sure Your Transmission Cooler Lines Are Tight, Lost About A Quart Of Tranny Fluid On A Later Discovered Loose Line Connection.. Car Runs Cooler Than Ever Now, Even Idleing With Air On Temp Runs Little Below Half Way Mark Now.....

Thanks for the info..

What site did you find the rad @$128? I found one locally for 133, of course I'll have to go pick it up.

Also, how tough was that lower heater hose to remove?
I saw where the top trans line was, I didn't see where the other one was. I guess it's near the bottom somewhere?
