Bringing this back up.the plastic nipple for the overflow/expansion tank broke off and i need to replace the radiator.
I just looked at a Spectra online since I can’t get an OEM radiator for my leaky one under warranty, it’s been 3 weeks waiting for one to be found in stock......somewhere ......ugh.RockAuto has the Spectra for 2 bills. I have had good luck with those, If the nipple broke off, how about tapping the hole for an 1/8" pipe thread brass nipple? I had to do that once and it worked great. BUT, there was enough meat there to tap threads and screw in the brass nipple. B.
Sooooo, know where an OEM radiator can be found for 2016 M6?Warning!!! Lots of the aftermarket radiators.....Especially listen if you are an Automatic driver... We will no longer install an aftermarket radiator in a customer vehicle regardless of GM model unless the customer signs a waiver that we will not be responsible for leaks...Especially the poorly machined, ill fitting connections for the trans cooler. We have found that these mostly Asian aftermarket units will slowly loose transmission oil due to poor tolerances at the cooler connections until something starts slipping. Often goes undetected especially when half of your service customers park in a gravel driveway. We battle aftermarket extended warranty companies to use the factory parts and when they will not comply we offer the customer the chance to pay into a factory replacement... We try to educate the customer that it is not as simple as a hose clamp anymore. In my thoughts, though, it should be. Dont let price on this uber important component cost you a transmission...
Dealer has been searching. Found one last week and that dealer canceled the order.I show no stock for your radiator from GM at this time. I do show 3 dealers that have one in stock. Possibly your dealer could arrange to purchase one of these units.
None listed for the SS..........next. :shrug:There is always an alternative,,,, even if its custom built,,,, and these will be WAYYYYYY BETTER than stock,,,, I'm Sure!!!
