The drivers side end tank of the radiator on my '94 Deville has a crack around where the upper oil cooler line connects, and the rib below that has a vertical crack in it. :crying2:
Is the plastic end tank repairable or replaceable? Or should I just start looking for a new radiator? :helpless:

The tanks are serviceable, either way the radiator has to come out and it's usually about 10 bucks cheaper to replace the tanks only, then you still have an old radiator core.
It's the flip of a coin really, whichever you prefer.
Replace both tanks if you take it out, otherwise you are really wasting money.

Sounds good. I bought a new OE style radiator with lifetime warranty for $192 shipped. And it will be here tomorrow! I guess I can't do much better than that!
Any tricks to changing the radiator on the Deville, or is it pretty straight forward as it looks?

Pretty straight forward.
Just be careful and don't rush yourself.
