    Post buying a radiator for cuore

    My cuore 2005's radiator is leaking. i am seeing coolant leaking drop by drop under car. this radiator is old now and i want to buy a new one. in local market i found out: 1- dubai made (3800rs,silver tubes plastic tanks,non repairable as told by shopkeepers) 2- taiwan made (4200rs,copper tubes metal tanks,repairable) 3- japanese (like original 5500rs) also i can get new tubes fitted for 3300rs to my old radiator. so are these deals reasonable? which one to go for? do these radiators last some time? please help because i am going to buy a radiator for first time.

    Go for plastic tank and Aluminum tubes.

    what harm can be done to aluminum head by using a silver or copper radiator and its reaction with water? if there is galvanization, can it be prevented?

    yeah. usually aluminum radiators if not mounted properly starts ionization. I like plastic one, if it breaks after a few years, just replace it.

    that is a very idiotic tip... it will ruin the cars engine in the long run...

    at op.. i work at atlas engineering, we market the allwin brand.. and used to supply toyota oem parts for cuore... copper radiators were used in manual cuore whereas the auto cuore had a denso japan aluminum radiator...

    my opinion get a aluminum radiator... do a full flush of cooling system with mild acid before installing new radiator... ensure that both thermostat valve and switch are working properly... if not then replace.

    also radiators such as yours can be repaired.. why not try that first...?
    the problem is not our govt... its the people..

    old radiator is not in very good condition. seems it got few hits by tools etc and was repaired. and now it is leaking slowly and i want a good solution and not a compromise. I am more inclined to kabuli mira's aluminium radiator but it is a used one. Cuore's stock radiator is made of copper and due to aluminium head, it is isolated from body using rubber pieces. i have understood it now that maybe it has been done to stop any reaction. tomorrow i will visit few more places to find an aluminum new one.

    my charade engine wore out at 2 lac km due to running cold all the time..it might have carried on for 30 or 40k more kms.. but there was too much blowby..

    the engine SHOULD heat up...to a very specific value... a thermostat valve and switch ensure that the engine reaches its optimum temperature quickly and maintains it...

    my company also manufacture pistons and cylinders for honda motor cycle... so i do know what i am taking about...
    the problem is not our govt... its the people..

    you are right. cold engine means fast wearing parts and bit more fuel consumption.

    Are you going to guarantee that the lubricating oil is void of water condensation and other toxins in that cold running engine? and are you also guaranteeing that you can achieve the correct running clearances in the cold engine and also excellent thermal effeciency too.

    If yes - I have got a very very very high paying job waiting for you.

    so as a matter of fact you are pushing that an oil adulterated with water vapour and other water soluble toxins will not harm the engine oil and in turn will not harm the engine too?

    You also are going backwards on the thermal efficiency with a cold engine. There is a difference between running cool and cold. Cool calls for a lower temperature thermostat to be used in extreme duty environments - removing it and rigging the fan to run at dead cold is a completely stupid idea by any stretch of the imagination. Your engine life is cut short by more than 70%
