    Radiator question

    Since the car rides low to the ground and at higher speeds should debris hitting the radiator be a bigger concern?

    I took off a couple of small rocks stuck to it but no apparent damages.

    Re: Radiator question

    I've yet to hear of a problem with it so I'd doubt there are any worries.

    Re: Radiator question

    nah wouldn't worry about small dents, if it were something that left a huge hole then you should start worrying

    Re: Radiator question

    If it really gets bothersome, my guess is, you can get in there with a small screwdriver and separate/straighten the metal strips. They don't have to look perfectly straight, just separated.

    Re: Radiator question

    All those metal fins do is create more surface area to allow the heat to be spread over/removed via.

    After various roadkills my intercooler .Which is pretty much the same thing, except air to air rather than air to water heat exchanger) is covered in buckled metal bits.

    As long as you don't damage the actual core, then it isnt a problem.

    So... Don't worry about it, it is part of driving and irrelevant.

    ...Add

    P.S. the roadkills were dumb animals. Well usually dumb birds that run out in front of me! The problem with living in the country!! Chunks of pheasant take ages to pick out!
