    Well a couple days ago i noticed a "leak" from the clamp on my upper hose of my radiator. No big deal right, go get another clamp and everything is good. I go over to the Toyota Dealership today to have them look at it and come to find out i have a crack at the top of the radiator that is leaking. Not big at all, yet big enough for it to squirt out every where. The mechanic said that i could probably seal it up but i didnt want to go to the trouble. So i bought another radiator. $217! That sucks man they wanted $400 for parts and labor so i said no! So tomorrow morning im skipping school:D and me and dad are putting it in. So if anyone is interested in the old radiator i will be willing to sell it. You can just seal it up and it will be fine. I will get pics up tomorrow after we take it out.

    hardest thing is probably finding something to catch all the antifreeze in..make sure as long as your there to drain and refill your coolant. Its probably due anyways

    Yeah, you definatley want to make sure its not cashed. The big thing out here is "washing" the check. Criminals "wash" the check, then make it out for a different amount. It sucks.
