Most of it is shipped. It'll all be shipped by tomorrow and then delivered by the 25.

Will do! Everything has been shipped. The thermostat and the EGR Valve will be here on the 24th and the radiator and cap will be here the 25th! Can't wait for it all to be here so I can get to work on it.

Nice! I am supposed to get my multi function switch today, Rockauto is quick! I had ordered some parts from GMPartsDirect.com and they took forever and customer service is non-existent as they never returned phone calls (left messages) or emails I sent. I think from now on I will not order from GMPartsdirect.com. So what caused the radiator to go bad with your car?

I'm not exactly sure. I got the car from my uncle. He said he looked over the car and replaced what was bad. He must not have noticed the leak. I barely noticed it myself. It's on the driver side. The car sat for months before I got it. The lady who had it before me would go and sit in the car and listen to the radio so the battery died and then it sat. So I guess it happened while it was sitting.

Here's a question. After I drop the radiator do I need to add transmission fluid since I'm taking the transmission cooler lines out? I saw one video of a guy doing it and transmission fluid came out when he took the line off. Thanks.

You might lose a pint or so. Start it up and that it's at the "cold" mark. Add if required ( not too much or you'll have a mess) then drive it till it's HOT and check for the full HOT line. The internal cooler does not hold that much and most of it drains back into the trans, but there will be some in there.

Before

During

After

Only took two hours. Thought it was gonna be a 15 minute job. Couldn't get a ratchet and socket to fit where it needed to be. So I had to figure something else out. But hey it's replaced! I've got more work tomorrow. My radiator is supposed to be coming.
