1995 Eldo Radiator Malfunction Identified: Need Help!!

791 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.

Can you believe the labor involved? I wasn't a math major but...if the petcock costs $5.00, and the most expensive of new radiators $150.00, the Cadillac dealer intended to charge $1,545.00 in labor. I'm taking a photo of the condition of the radiator/petcock tonight, as I 'have' to assume a corroded radiator loosened the fitment of the pet cock which then dislodged. What do you think?
