[DML] Re: Cooling Problem

You also need to be VERY careful with the radiator as well when it
comes to concrete stops & curbs in parking spaces. The bottom of the
radiator is right the height to scrape the tops of these concrete
obsticales. Impacting it like this will cause the side tanks to flex,
and eventualy seperate, causing leaks in an otherwise good radiator.

So you need to be really careful with these things. Scraping the
ground with the nose isn't always just isolated to the sway bar
brackets. Take it from me on this one, because I've done the same
thing a a 4-year old radiator on my car by being careless.
