    Radiator problems

    Thank you for your reply Mr. Clark. My XLR is a 2005 with 33000 miles. According to the maintance history, the radiator has never been replaced. I do occasionally see a pudle of green water under the car. The overflow tank is only about half full. I only have about 4 months left on the extended warrenty. Is there anything else i can check or should i just take it to the dealer. Thanks for your advise.

    Re: Radiator problems

    With two months left on your warranty, this might be a good time to take advantage of it. The dealer can check the integrity of your cooling system and radiator. Puddles of radiator coolant can be a warning sign. If the radiator is starting to go, it will wait until the warranty expires and split a seam at the most inconvenient time. An ounce of prevention . . .
