Even a skilled cooling system professional can't work miracles on a Radiator that's severely corroded or damaged. The only solution is a new Radiator, and the best
solution is an all-new Modine complete Radiator. Modine complete Radiator give you the
assurance of long lasting performance and efficiency. They're completely new and are
designed for your engine and performance needs. Modine Radiator fit perfectly, install
quickly and easily and are backed by a factory warranty.
Some Radiator problems can be effectively solved with a new copper/brass or
aluminum core. Recoring can bring your Radiator back to efficient operating condition
using old tanks, brackets and transmission oil cooler. Your cooling system professional
will help you determine whether recoring is a viable alternative. A new core comes with a
limited factory warranty, the reused parts cannot be factory warranted against failure.
Minor Radiator problems can often be repaired, although you should be aware
that repairing is frequently a short-term solution to a long-term problem. Copper/brass
Radiator are bonded with solder which can deteriorate and corrode. The newer aluminum
Radiator are somewhat more durable, but are also more difficult to repair. Plastic tanks
on many newer cars present a different set of problems, but in most cases can be replaced.
For all Radiator, higher engine temperatures increase expansion and contraction. Before
risking failures and costly engine and transmission damage, consult with a cooling system
professional who can advise you of your replace, recore and repair options.
