    Hi again guys, thank you for all the help the last time and Good afternoon!

    I badly need another suggestion!

    My car has a radiator leak at the plastic top cover, everytime na full including the reservoi, exactly 1litre ang nababawas sa coolant on each drive. Now, i want to replace it.
    Which would be the right choice? Should i go for the same Plastic top radiator or the full Aluminum? Sabi po kasi ng pinsan ko, plastic ang OEM dahil my purpose and yun daw po unang masisira kung sakali, while sa aluminum, ala xa inputs..

    Also, if i'm going for the plastic, ano po kunin ko, Taiwan or Japan made? What's the difference on the two by quality?
    I'm eyeing the Aluminum type but i really need an experts suggestion on what 2row radiator to use on my a Civic '10..

    Original Japan. Mura na lang radiator ng FD kahit sa casa ka pa bumili.

    the reason car makers use plastic radiators, is because they are cheaper to manufacture.
    that's all.

    plastic radiators can last long, just as copper and aluminum ones do.
    going OEM is a good idea.
    pag may nangyari afterwards, walang masisisi...

    in my opinion,
    it's "personal choice".
