1995 Eldo Radiator Malfunction Identified: Need Help!!

790 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Raze
I previously reported a radiator issue. The Caddy dealer in Yokosuka advised there is a plastic drain mechanism at the lower right area of the radiator, and that the plastic piece has deteriorated, causing the leak/release of coolant. As I stated before, the coolant flows out perfectly from a small factory-hole under the radiator. The dealer recommends replacement of the radiator, $1,700.00. Really need some assistance. Otherwise I will sell this car, with 53,000 original miles. Can the plastic be replaced without replacement of the entire radiator? Any experienced advice is appreciated.

Considering the age, that is possible. That labor fee is excessive. I'd ask them to break it down and justify that price. You might have some competitive prices with you. I suspect the hourly fee might be a little embarrassing.............. then again.
