[DML] Aluminum core/Plastic tank radiators



I'm leaving town for a week or so, and though the best way to start the 
trip off right would be to stir up a bit of discussion just as I am 
leaving and unable to respond in a timely manner. :-)

We've got a DeLorean here in the shop with one of the aftermarket 
radiators (and bad cooling fans) so it had to come out. The tech 
commented on what a pain it was to get in and out, and then we talked 
about the aftermarket vs oem radiators.

Here's an interesting link to a comments by the Car Guys, Tom and Ray.

One thing that they don't mention, which I think has some relevance is 
the age of the radiator that failed - more or less 15 years. As a Volvo, 
I don't doubt that it was a particularly high mileage car, either, as 15 
year old cars go. ANY fifteen year old radiator probably merits looking 
at with an eye toward replacement.
