    Well, got home today from starbucks and heard a faint hissing sound coming from the front of my car "240", so chances are my radiator is cracked somewhere. Popped the hood and yup, she was, small little stree crack on the top left, So I guess radiator project this weekend, time to upgrade to one that has welded end tanks.


    I hate fucking plastic endtanks on radiators.......POS's


    ah...


    I might take some pics, depends on how bored I will get, plus the pics will more than likely be boring, since infact I am replacing a oem radiator with another oem radiator, nothing exciting.
