2001 XJ need a new radiator

I have had a 3 row csf radiator for the past 6 years, I had to replace it once already under warranty for a leak. The replacement is now leaking in the same spot🤦*♂️.

Looking for suggestions on what to go with now.

After trying Spectra's and having them repeatedly fail around the 2 year mark, I switched to Mopar's from the dealer and haven't had any problems with them. 52079682AF.

Genuine Jeep parts fit better and last longer.

There's a good Radiator Review/Rating thread in here somewhere... LOTS of information there.

I looked yesterday for Cal's thread but couldn't find it, the search engine barely works anymore.
Found it using Google, it is a better place to search, even for .
Include the word "" at the end of the search request .

I'm sending the old one that leaked out to see if they can repair it. I'll report back here with the outcome.

Re: 2001 XJ need a new radiator

Don't forget, to replace the rubber absorption bushes. They don't like being fitted to tight. Leading to cracking at joints etc.
Lost faith in radiator flush chemicals available in OZ,
Almost drinkable!
Mate and I ended up draining the system that was gunned up with straight cheap cleaning vinegar, ran it for and hour and, soaked over night, ran it again for and hour .
Flushed well.
Did a great job.
Not for everyone perhaps.....

Sent out the old csf 3 row radiator. Has it repaired and I installed it, so far no leaks. Best part is the company my job uses for this service repaired it under "customer appreciation " and didnt charge me a dime.

That's awesome! I still have my leaking 3 Row CSF Aluminum radiator sitting beside my work bench in my garage... can't bring myself to throw out all that pretty aluminum, even if it does have a slight leak.

I would, but I don't know of any decent local repair shops. Plus for the price it would likely cost it's not worth it to me since I already replaced it w/an all-metal HD one.
