Engine Cooling problem
1998 Pontiac Sunbird 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles

Due to a lack of coolant maintenance on my part, I was told my radiator was clogged. I was told it had to be replaced because clogs can not be cleaned out because they are calcium buildups and caustic chemicals like they used in the old days can not be used on radiators. (I have never put water in my radiator).

Does this sound accurate to you?

Do you

Hi there,

Remove the radiator and have a radiator specialist clean & flow test it. They will be able to tell you if it is serviceable or not.
