The "OEM" quality radiator I purchased, was not! The rad.
was not all metal, 2 row instead of 3, fan shroud had to be trimmed due to tranny lines and lower hose inlet and mounting hole were off, just to start. The fill neck is slightly lower than upper coolant hose outlet, which caused air pocket and lead to head gasket failure. This truck doesn't have a problem with this nor does it require a bleeder screw. I 1st contacted radiator manufacture to discuss this matter.
The manu. stated that some vehicles have to be jacked up to rid the vehicle of this condition. (case closed with them) Now I turn to AZ (store manager SHAWN to area manager DONNY to AZ claims Randy). To some it up their claims "specialist" didn't want to here that the radiator was not as advertised.
Oh, I forgot to mention that the box was opened, marked send back and taped up! The sales person CRYSTAL said that it was fine but she failed to mention that instal manual with the air pocket warning was not in it!
Guess who had to eat it! Thnx AZ
