Radiators work as a sort of heat exchanger, transferring heat away from the coolant and introducing it to the cold air blown in by the fan. There are several types of radiators, including copper and brass, aluminum, and plastic. Copper and brass got used before 1980 - when aluminum and plastic became the norm. You can usually expect about 8 to 10 years out of a radiator before needing a new one. Signs of an issue include a temperature gauge in the red, overheating, visible discoloration, low coolant levels, or a coolant leak. If your engine gets too hot, it can seize, which is an extremely costly repair that's best avoided. Because of this, it's fair to say that your radiator is an essential component of your vehicle. A good reason to replace it at the first signs of an issue. When it comes to primary engine parts for your GM vehicle, experts suggest OEM parts and accessories designed specifically for your model. Why take a risk on a cheap aftermarket alternative? Instead, choose genuine parts built to last a long time. GM Outlet Parts features a massive supply of factory parts.
