Re: Leaking Radiator
Same age / model as my car, I had to fit a new rad about 3 years age. Think it cost about £90 and fitting was lost in the mix as I also had a water pump and cambelt change at the same time!
Simon is right I think, have heard a few stories of rads going after 6 - 7 years. Changed mine as some of the cooling fins were coming off, but no leak.
The real problem causing high running temp (reason I had any work done) was the water pump plastic impeller slipping after the metal shaft corroded a bit and split it, causing it to split. Whenever you get your cambelt changed next I suggest it's worth getting a metal impeller pump fitted if you're not sure its been done - wont cost much while they're in there, better than having to strip it all separately if the pump does go.
