For What It's Worth. Yes the plastic tanks eventually crack or leak. My original radiator lasted 15 years. The Spectra replacement seems to doing just fine. You may be able to have Griffin or another radiator manufacturer make you an all metal one, but it will be expensive. Just get a replacement on rockauto.com

The jegs radiators are thicker, but they aren't as long as the original. Plus you need a tranny cooler because the jegs radiator does not have provisions for the trans fluid like the original radiator does.
