There is/was a small radiator shop on Connecticut Blvd near Jones Air. If
you can find it, they did a repair on a Quantum rad for me a year or two
ago. They did a nice job and cleaned and flushed the rad for me - for $30.
That said, if it was my car, I'd probably replace the radiator. Yes, they
are expensive, but they are also a pia to get in and out. To me, it's the
kind of job that I'm not interested in doing more than once.

Fine TurkeyWeek morning to you-
Confirmed this weekend I've got a puncture in the center of my radiator,
likely caused by the monkey that did my Tbelt the day I purchased the car.
Question: are these units reparable? I believe it's got plastic end caps,
typically they are not. How about just soldering (er, or whatever they do)
the offending tube? If not, anyone here got a spare laying around??? I
gotta believe this sucker's > $300-400. F me if that's the case. And I
doubt putting a new one in will make the car any faster... 8-).
Any removal / install tips (aside from being bent over from the above
raping?)??? Hopefully the BatSignal in the subject line nets me something
'95 //S6 fast but leaky
