radiator for S-10

Asked by May 25, 2012 at 09:56 AM about the 2003 Chevrolet S-10 3 Dr LS 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2003 S-10, 4.3 with aftermarket air intake and throttle body spacer.  I need a new radiator and the mechanic is going to charge me over 500.00.  First, how hard is it to replace?  Second, I found two radiators, Spectra and Murry.  One from NAPA and one from OReilly's.  I have read mixed reviews on both, which one should I go with?
