    With my old Accord before, the plastic top part of radiator leaked. When the mechanic and I inspected the radiator, there was no leak on its body.

    He suggested to repair the radiator by replacing the top and lower plastic portions with copper. It was done in half a day. The new top and lower portions were welded properly. It worked well even up to the point when I sold the car. Repair and labor costs were around 2k.

    Pag full aluminum, make sure na may mabibili ka radiator cap if nasira. Ang alam ko kasi iba ang radiator cap ng full aluminum.

    For me ok lang kung "Taiwan" radiator. Most likely hindi pa Taiwan yan, but made in china yan. What is important is yung radiator core should be at least same size sa OEM, or better if bigger.

    Nagtanong ka na ba talaga sa casa? Siguro nasa 8k lang yan OEM nila.

    Nagtanong ka na rin ba sa denso?

    If you're planning to keep it pa. Get the OEM.

    Plus palitan mo na rin mga hoses tutal aalisin na rin and put the correct coolant.

    Bumili ka na pre-mixed

    replacing the plastic 'tubs with metal.
    i have heard of this.
    done correctly, matibay daw.

    i once had my metal tubs removed, then re-soldered back.
    radiator man did it to clean the innards of the passageways.
    no leakage problems afterward.

    ask for price, compare with brand new... then decide.

    buying from the casa is expectedly more expensive. but newbie owners probably have a sense of stability with it.
    does it include labor?
