Well I started my project by replacing the alternator. Then I figured why not just go ahead and replace the water pump. Then why not the belts and hoses. Today I noticed corrosion on my radiator. So I am ordering that.

I am attaching some pics so chime in. What time or mileage is expected to replace radiator? It was not leaking but does have corrosion on the inside and outside.

I can get a OEM BEHR model for $250 or a Nissens unit for $150. Any thoughts? Anyone ever use Nissens? Thanks.
