    WHERE DID THE RADIATORS COME FROM? LOT OF CRAP OUT THERE IN AFTER MKT. BUT LOT OF GOOD PARTS ALSO.
    NAPA HAS ALWAYS BEEN GOOD QUALITY FOR ME! NOT TO SAY OTHERS ARE NOT. BUT I HAVE HAD TROUBLE WITH THIS
    MAKE IN THE PAST. (DODGE CARAVAN)DON'T KNOW WHY BUT I HAVE. MIGHT TRY A BETTER(MORE EXPENSIVE) UNIT.
    NOW I AM NOT SAYING YOU ARE CHEAP!! ONE MORE THING IS THE VAN RUNNING OK? NO STEAM OUT OF TAIL PIPE AND NO MISFIRE WHEN FIRST STARTED IN THE MORNING?
