You might get them to cover it if you are under their very short "tailight" warrantee.. 15 days 500 miles.. Sheez that'* nothing, they might as well posted "AS-IS" on the window,

But, like Don said, fixing the radiator is a no-brainer that doesn't even make you break a sweat doing it.

Anyway ya slice it, congrats on getting the Park Ave...even if your folks "punk'd" you in the process.

I have a friend that has a Park Ave.... He won't get rid of it as it runs too good( 189,000 iirc ) and its still good on gas...

How about this?

http://www.autozone.com/R,APP326178/...ductDetail.htm

As far as covering it, i got it from a dealer buddy, who pretty much offered it at cost <what he paid plus the minimum amount per car they need to make to keep the doors open>. and he already fixed a motor mount, and got the air conditioner recharged before i bought it. I think i will buy above part, and see if his guy will put it in. I would rather have a lifetime warranty one in there anyway.

we tried patching it with marine epoxy, not even close

it also chugs when i nail it at the bottom of a gear. i am hoping that it just needs a tuneup.

I also think it took a shot in the rr fender because there is no park avenue badge, and no clearcoat either

what about the warranty though? I have grown fond of the whole lifetime warranty concept. something about if it breaks again, it'* covered. <tempo blew 2 pet ***** on 2 differant radiators.>

Oh yeah, i have only ran this thing all out twice. Today when i jumped on it, it smelled funny, suspect blowing carbon. it sounds like it is pinging at low rpm under load. here is my to do list:

Radiator
Fuel Filter
Seafoam
Full Tune up
Transmission service.
