So I put a new radiator in my buick lacrosse (3800 series III engine). Put about 1500 miles on it and it blew out all the coolant while my wife was driving it home. She got it off the road and shut down fast, so I am hoping the head isn’t warped.. I left it cool for a few hours and just started it enough to move it for the tow truck driver to load it, and then to pull it out of the cul-de-sac around to the back of the house. The finally a few days later into the garage. so here’s hoping I don’t make a milkshake when I get a new one in it.
Anyway, the question I have is, is this common with the new radiators being plastic on the sides and metal in the middle? I bought a Spectra Premium, so not the cheapest one. There is a warranty of 2 years. Is it worth warrantying this or just buying an AC Delco or a Denso and be done with it?
