Car is 19 years old. Now it leaks when pressurized. I have not got under the car yet but I think it is leaking from the very bottom. Perhaps a small crack. I'm fairly broke right now ; new job. I can't get a aluminum radiator now. I may go with an auto store oem replacement. Any ideas?

If I get one from the junkyard good chance it is the same. I got a pressure tester and I will check it in the morning go from there

+1 on the pick and pull. Ive had to replace mine in my old 98 v6 and thats the route I went. It was fairly easy to do and cost me like 50 bucks. Also remember that if you have an auto get a radiator from an auto and same with a 5 speed. Theyre not the same.
