how different are the radiators form the ef to the el or au, can you interchange them all, or just the ef to el or there all different. mainly cause mine is leaking bad and i can get an au one for nothing but just want to know if it can fit before i get it. also how much would a wrecker charge for one.

think its like $120 for a service for the radaitor. They will replace side tanks and clean the inside of it. Works a beauty.

But for $180 you can get a new one with a 12 month warranty instead of 3 months.

Why spend more when you can spend less to do the same job.
Only do that if your radiator is still in good condition though.

Most of the time they are not worth fixing. Plus the warranty is worth the extra $

When the tank on my EL's radiator failed I was quoted $135 to remove both tanks, clean out the core, replace the broken tank, supply new seals and re-assemble. With a 3 month warranty.

For a $170 I got a new radiator with 12 months. Wouldn't you pay $35 more for a radiator that was 100% new parts!
