    Went to casa and they quoted me 21k for the radiator assembly. Ito nalang siguro. Iwas headache. Almost 10 years narin yung original radiator. Normal ba talagang magpalit ng radiator kahit alagang alaga mo yung ride mo?

    After the first repair 2 years ago, straight distilled water. Kaya siguro nabutas kasi nag corrode. But im using 50/50 ngayon. Kakarepair lang ulit kanina and Iím using 50/50. Habang nag aantay parts sa casa. Pwede na. If hindi ulit masira, stock nalang muna yung brand new tsaka na ipalit pag nabutas na ulit.

    Not sure ano ang better. Mas mabigat ata ang copper tsaka easier to repair than aluminum. Ang unang bumibigay sa oem rad eh yung plastic tank. Thatís why naka convert na sakin yung top tank to bronze. 2 years rin ulit bago nasira. Kaya eto ngayun sakit ulit sa ulo. Better siguro bumili nalang talaga ng bago kesa paulit2x na repair.

    hindi kaya masyadong malakas ang pressure ng cooling system mo kaya mabilis mabutas ung rad para magka leak.nagpapalit kanaba ng thermostat mo...ganyan din kasi naging problema ko dati sa civic ko..hightemp siya masyado nun pala palitin na ung thermo switch at thermostat.saka rad fan ko ayun tumino kahit na ilang beses nadin na repair ung rad ko..

    Primo, the pressure can not increase over time, it's the exact opposite. The radiator cap is the pressure regulator of the cooling system and never gets stronger. Even if there was combustion chamber pressure breach to the cooling system, the rad cap still limits it. Simply, the radiator is old, corroded and is not able to hold the normal and designed pressure. Of course, like many posters on the forum, it happened to them.

    Guys.. concern din tayo with fellow old cars owners.. yung Toyota red coolant na phase out na ata. Is the current Toyota pink applicable sa pre 2005 na old cars..

    Just get a bigger radiator. Dito kasi sa pinas minsan di kinakaya ang init ng stock radiator lang.

    Flush the radiator first before using the new coolant. Do not mix different types of coolants.

    once a plastic top aluminium radiator conks out, it is still best to change the whole thing. It is also best to put the same OEM coolant the manufacturer placed in your car from the production line to prevent "chemical reaction" with other coolant brands. but it is a different story for copper-based radiators as it can be repaired by most radiator shops. I don't like the idea of putting a brass tank top on an aluminium radiator, depending on how good it was repaired, it can still undergo galvanic reaction leading to corrosion and eventually failure. And you will have your radiator repaired again. Most radiator problems I know of starts usually when the owner changes the OEM coolant with something else he thinks that is better than the OEM....
