Cracked radiator, some questions.
I am pretty car saavy and know quite a bit about cars. This was very unexpected and really quite unusual for me. I have seen neglected radiators rust out, or get so plugged up they cannot function, but for it to be cracked is new to me.
The fellows at the Acura dealership said it was quite normal for it to happen as the upper and lower half of the radiator are made of plastic and the thermal stress eventually wins the upper hand.
I have taken pretty good care of my cooling system, I had the coolant changed at 60,000 then again around 90,000 (which is the recommended service per the owners manual).
Also my last question is, could I have them salvage my current radiator as I am not in the financial position to shell out $560 for them to replace it with a new unit.
Thanks in advance
