Bluebee, the radiator is sometimes but not always the first thing to go. My grandfather had a hose blow up, followed 2 weeks later by his expansion tank spontaneously blowing out. I've had a leaky... something... under my expansion tank that leaks when it's <0C, but it's been that way for 10k km. (fingers crossed) The weather sucks, so I'm waiting until later this year (if I'm still driving it) but I will be doing the whole cooling system. No f*cking around is what I've learned (so I'm f*cking around pushing my luck to 100k miles)
