    Default VY V6 radiator problems

    hi all
    today i was driving my vy and coolant started pissing out everywhere from the side of the radiator, from where the plastic sides meet the metal part of the radiator. Just wondering if i am in need of a new radiator? i have included a picture of where the coolant is coming out (it is the drivers side of the radiator)

    u can get the side pod replaced but for a little more would be better to get the whole radiator...

    If you are replacing the rad get the cooling system flushed and the heater too.. Don't want old gunk in the new rad..

    As above. Put the old radiator in the bin and pop a new one in.

    Flush and refill with 50/50 coolant/water and enjoy.

    When you take the old out take the thermostat cover off and the thermostat out and run the hose through the motor and leave the heater turned on.. Then put back together and refill with fresh new coolant
