So looks like i'll replace the expansion tank too, along with the water pump and thermostat. Anything else i need to change while im in there? Hoses still look good.
Depending on how long it's been, I would change the temp sensor on the lower radiator hose. There's a little green oring that the sensor is sealed by which I would replace too.
That's a very common leak area. There is also a transmission thermostat on the bottom right hand side of the radiator, check for leaks there.
Good luck.
