radiator needed

Recommended Posts

Morning

 

I require a radiator for my 2002 is 200. The core depth of the radiator is 27mm. I have been searching around and can't seem to find an oe spec component. I don't wan't to buy from ebay or dealer. I tried euro car parts but they do not have the 27mm rad. They list it incorrectly for my car for sure, but they don't have right parts. Can members please make a suggestion on which company is good to deal with for this part please.

To be honest I don't know if it's OE spec but they seem to be well built.  I got mine through Eurocarparts rather than eBay or the likes, that way I've got easy comeback if there was a problem.

I have just bought a Koyo radiator from EuroCarParts.  It's got 26mm core, and seems well-made.  It's half the price of the Nissens one (which I also looked at - it seems good) and about a quarter of the cost of an OEM replacement from a dealer.

One point to watch is whether you get the version for manual or auto.  Auto vehicles need to have a radiator with a built-in transmission oil cooler.  These can be used in a manual car:  it just means leaving the oil-cooler, if there is one, unconnected.....

The ones from ECP are more than enough to cool the IS200, I have an aftermarket rad and the temp has never increased above normal even in stop go traffic on the motorway in the South of France in 42C weather
