Re: Question on Radiator connections

Might as well do that radiator change while the TB and WP are being done.

Are you gonna have the valves adjusted as well?

Re: Question on Radiator connections

Question for the people in this thread, How many gallons of honda coolant am I going to need for the new radiator? Is it just one gallon? I checked in the manual but I couldn't find an answer.

Re: Question on Radiator connections

Ive got about 45k miles on a 2006. I just purchased one gallon. Used the gallon of new and if I recall needed a cup or two of the old. Of course had I been closer to the life expectancy of the old fluid then I would have replaced it all. This was just by opening the drain on the bottom of the radiator. I didn't open anything on the engine or water jacket anywhere so I didn't really concern myself with anything remaining in the engine as you would if you wanted to do a complete flush. I actually just purchased it in case i spilled anything significant and then thought to myself why not use all of the new and back fill with old if necessary.

It's all good fun!

Re: Question on Radiator connections

When I drained my radiator and replaced the fluid, it took less than 2 gallons. The specs say 1.64 gallons for a drain and refill.


I strongly suggest you use an appropriate tool to eliminate air in the system:

Re: Question on Radiator connections

I purchased mine from Auto Parts Warehouse and I had no issues with their service or delivery but there are various sites you can choose from. The silla radiator for the 06-08 ridgelines is 7370A not sure if its different for later years but the Silla website has a parts finder.

Re: Question on Radiator connections

I purchased mine through radiatorexpress.com by calling them. There is a limited lifetime warranty on it, but there is also no guarantee which brand you will receive. You can buy the Silla on Ebay right now for $132 and free shipping.
