The plastic tank radiators are fine. We only use the original type and have had no problems. Check our sponsor RockAuto for good prices and being a member, you get a discount. Look in the sponsor forum.

Re: '93 taurus radiator leak....

well, IMO, what did kill my radiator. This car was in Odessa before. Warm winter.. -5-+5 dgr C.... this winter was very cold in Lugans, UNREALLY COLD!!! two weeks we had -35 dgr C and lower... I used 0w30 oil, but anyway I have no garage and my car sits all night on parking near my home. So I had really cold start all the winter....20 minutes later engine runs at 80 dgr c! the real thermal sterss.

I had aerostar and I put made in USSR cooper 2 row radiator. Had never any issue.... no overheating, no cracks, no leak...

I saw Sable with fully aluminium radiator and seems to me it is more reliable solution. No plastic-rubber-metal join. I suggest cracks are possible anyway, but easier to repaere....

Update:
week with Liqui Moly stop leak and no green puddle under car. Okay, I consider it the temporary solution to change radiator.
