    After discovering a crack in my radiator I'm going to replace it with either a Koyo C1755 or a TYC 1755. Both come in the 22 5/8 core size i need. The Koyo is about 75 more than the TYC, but from what I've read the Koyo is a great choice. The TYC is available through RockAuto. The TYC, on the other hand, comes with a lifetime warranty againt all defects. Any opinions on this one, I only want to do this once.

    Hey sorry, no I haven't yet because classes started and I haven't had much time to dedicate to my truck. The crack is miniscule, so I've been routinely checking my coolant levels. Hopefully by next week I will have time to replace it! As of now I will most likely be choosing the Koyo 22 5/8.

    Also if anyone can point me in the right direction of a quality thermostat replacement I would be very appreciative. There seem to be too many choices on RockAuto's website.

    Is it small enough to patch? I pin hole can be patched by soldering it, or using some additive, or one of the home remedies pepper and eggs or something LOL.

    (no idea if pepper and eggs works...)

    No it's big enough to need replacing, but not so large its an imminent issue.
