L Body Radiator

Hey all,

My radiator has a leak. If anyone has a working replacement they can let go, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

1985 Dodge Omni GLH (nonturbo, Carb, Stick Shift)

Re: L Body Radiator

Rockauto.com has plenty of them. The carb and turbo radiator is the same for that year and model. Last time I checked they were under $200 shipped.

Re: L Body Radiator

Yeah I've seen them. Just wondering if any members have one sitting around they'd be willing to let go for cheaper. I'm a college student on a very tight budget, so I don't have a ton of money to throw around :)

Thanks!

You could gamble on this one:

Engine bay looks clean so maybe it was taken care of.

But looking at the pass. floorboard who knows?

Unfortunately that's an Auto radiator. It's slightly different from my manual one. The manual has an outlet for the heater core, the auto doesn't. I have a parts car with an auto radiator and I was tempted to
splice a line in, but I just decided to splurg on a new radiator last night for $180. It'll be worth it in the long run I suppose. Thanks for your input!

That's right, you've got a stick shift.

Yeah, better a new one for the long run.

Just less beer for the weekend

Yeah I do :( Oh well, hopefully I won't have to worry about any radiator problems in the future. Thanks again!

Re: L Body Radiator
