Hey guys, first post!

Today I replaced my radiator with a koyorad. I found that the fittings on the bottom of the original radiator were both bent and one of them appeared to be leaking.

Neither the coolant nor the ATF appeared to have any signs of contamination. I just wanted to say thank you to all of the people who made threads on this topic without whom I would not have been able to find the information I needed.

Yeah, I've been working on cars for a long time. I've owned 3 z cars and this is my fourth Nissan. For the past couple of years I've mostly been Rocking Subarus.

For me, I like knowing all of the mechanical intracies, so that way when something doesn't feel right or breaks out on the trail, I know what's wrong and can fix it.

Same here, I can then immediately say, alright what did I fuck up this time? Did I torque everything down correctly? Lol.
