    '01 Z28 Radiator

    I just purchased a new radiator because my original has a crack in the plastic on the driver's side. I purchased one from auto zone. The only difference is that it has two connections on the fill/cap side of the radiator. I believe these are oil cooler/ transmission cooler ports. They have blue screw-on caps out of the box, but these caps don't look durable enough to leave on. Does anyone know if there are caps that I can purchase for them or are the blue ones ok to use?

    i assume you are a manual? its hard to know how durable they are not seeing them. i bet that they will work, you can also just go back to vatozone or lowes or something and get some plugs to cap em off

    Yep, M6. I can't post a picture yet, but they look more like a temporary cap to keep dust out than anything permanent. They're definitely not hard plastic although you would think that they would come with permanent caps in case they weren't needed. I'm not sure. I was hoping someone else has been through this before.

    Why not get the right radiator for your car? You can buy brass caps for the connections at a hardware, home depot, etc. but I would put the correct radiator in. BTW a radiator shop is a better place to go for radiators.
