Omfg! So yesterday at dunkin donuts getting a coolata (delicious) my radiator cracks in the same spot as before. That's the 3rd one that's cracked in the same place in 6 months. What could be causing it? I have an 02 grand cherokee

Re: radiator keeps cracking

Where did it crack, the plastic tank or a small hole in the aluminum core?

Re: radiator keeps cracking

It.must be mounted under tension, or a problem with the brand you used.
