Leakin' Radiator, 02 WJ Is it a PITA?

Do you already have a new replacement?

If not you can swing by your local auto parts shop and pick up a bottle of Barsleak...

Seems to work pretty good.....known several vehicles that have lasted for years with this product used to fix a leaky rad...

PITA? Yep. Way more work involved in swapping our 99 WJ's radiator than is involved in swapping my dakota's radiator.

It is a tight squeeze to get the radiator out, but just keep working at it and it can be done. I found that removing the Trans cooler fittings on the radiator helped a good bit with clearance issues.

99 WJ Laredo - Mine once again!
