Hi Carl,

Not exactly sure what you are measuring unless you are measuring the A/C Condensor on the front of the radiator.

But the radiator is about 23+ inches wide, and you should be able to get one at your local parts store.

The exact size is 20 inches wide x 14 inches tall.
The standard size you refer to is too wide. We have checked with numerous auto stores who have said the same thing. That's why we turned to the experts. Where can we get the size we need? Thanx in advance, Carl and Wayne.

Ok, the Pic above I checked out and size is to big also.

So, here is what you may have to do. Two choices.

1) Depending on what is leaking or wrong with your radiator you can take it to a radiator shop were they can Recore it if the core is the problem. Or if one or two of the viens are leaking they can block they off.

2) If your local parts store will work with you and if the have a Radiator Book with all the sizes. They can or you can take the measurements for all the inlets outlet etc. Or take it out and take it with you to the parts store to make sure you get the right measurements.

I have looked thought my parts books and cannot find the size you need. I don't have a radiator book but have access to one. So, If you can take some pics of the radiator in the vehicle and as you remove it I will do what I can to help. Also get me the month, year submodel and vin number and I will see what I can find.

Sorry I haven't been able to help locate a new one for you as of yet.
