mmarinov Posted December 21, 2009 Report Share Posted December 21, 2009 Hello, all. My 2000 STS (70K) developed an external antifreeze leak underneath the passenger front side of the car. Took it in to the dealer and looks like the radiator's cracked (I wasn't able to see the source of leakage in my garage so I took it in). Long story short, they want about $1K to replace the radiator and also told me one of the head gaskets is leaking (add another $3,300). I got her with 48K and actually followed through with preventative maintenance to head off potential had gasket problems, but such is life. In any event, how difficult are these radiators to replace? One poster on the CO forum indicated they had to remove the A/C condensor, and someone with a '98 said they just had to move the condensor. Advice, anyone? FWIW, I have not had any overheating issues as of yet. I am deliberating whether to ride out the head gasket problem or maybe fix the immediate problem and trade it in? Thanks guys & gals.
