Will a 2003 Ford Explorer radiator fit in a 2000 Ford Explorer? Also, having to replace my radiator but trying to do it as cheap as possible so trying to get one at a junk yard, is that okay?

No only 2000-2001 on that one if you get one from the junk yard you are taking a risk you can try to look at it visably but you dont know if it will leak or how long it will ask. Try going to www. Rockauto. Com and see how much you can get it for there.I also have a 5 percent discount code for there if you need it.

Ok I replace my radiator and flushed the cooling system to get the chocolate milk looking liquid out. (NASTY) Bought a brand new radiator, put it in, flushed the system, filled it up and took it for a drive. Seemed really good. Until this morning we checked the fluids before leaving to take my husband to work and the radiator was full of "chocolate milk". My husband said it seems the transmission fluid is getting into the radiator. HELP! What do we do?

Are sure that its transmission fluid?The only way that could happen is if the transmission cooler on the radiator leaked into the radiator but you said you replaced the radiator with a brand new radiator. Usually the coolant looking like choclate milk is oil getting into the coolant. So you thought that replacing thr radiator and flushing it would take care of it without fixing the source of the contamiantion?So is thick and goey and a whitish brown color coolant?
