98 Ford Ranger Replacement Radiator
June 14, 2017
I developed a leak in my radiator on my Ford Ranger. I have purchased parts on multiple occasions from 1aauto.com in the past and have always been satisfied. This purchase was no different from past experiences. The price is uncomparable to local parts stores. Shipping was free and I received the radiator two days after placing order. The radiator was a perfect quality replacement. Anytime I need parts I look to 1aauto.com without hesitation.
July 10, 2017
I bought a few items from a1auto, and I'm very satisfied with products. Installation videos were real helpful on how to . I will definitely recommend in ordering with confidence an fast and secure orders any items for sure....thank you and keep the good work.
July 27, 2017
Purchased radiator for my 98 ranger from you, it is an exact fit, nonproblems at all. Would recommend your company to anyone. I will be buying more products from you
Great Experience!
October 7, 2017
We ordered a new radiator for our old truck. It was our first order from this company. We were extremely happy with the price (after getting several other prices). The part shipped right to our door, very quickly, with no problems. The tutorial was so helpful that my husband was able to install the part himself, which saved us $100. We are very satisfied customers!!!
Exactly as described: Direct Replacement
October 10, 2017
As a returning customer I didn't expect any surprises. There were none. Search and order process were effortless. The part was delivered on time and well packaged. The You Tube video detailed each step of the installation clearly and precisely. Draining and refilling the cooling system took longer that removing and replacing the radiator.
No leaks yet
October 14, 2017
Replacement went smoothly and the radiator has started leaking yet.
November 16, 2017
I enjoyed every bit of my experience thank you I will definitely recommend y'all

Radiator installation went smoothly
September 16, 2018
I watched the 1A AUTO installation video for the radiator installation. It looked pretty easy so I decided to try it myself. After it arrived which was pretty quick, I reviewed the video again. Everything literally went as smooth as the video installation. I did mine in my yard and used a large collection pan to catch the coolant. I am glad 1 A AUTO makes these installation and repair videos. And their prices are GREAT !!!!

Awesome service
November 28, 2018
Ordering was quick and easy. The staff member I spoke with on the phone was knowledgeable, helpful, and answered all my questions. The new radiator arrived more quickly than I thought. I haven't installed it yet so I can't speak to anything regarding that
Ford Ranger Radiator
December 1, 2018
The radiator was a perfect fit. The price was about half of any other place I searched. The only negative is that my truck is a manual shift. The radiator works with manual or automatic. It did not come with plugs for the automatic ports. I went to Home Depot and found plugs in the plumbing dept. If not for that it would have gotten 5 stars.

1999 Ford Ranger replacement Radiator
December 9, 2019
When the radiator in my Ranger developed a small leak, I needed to consider repair or new. I just finished a complete clutch rebuild and did not want to spend a lot on additional repairs. Since the truck is over 20 years old, I decided to replace the radiator. While checking local auto parts stores and online, I found 1A Auto. The price was good. The product was in stock, and the reviews were satisfactory. Free shipping and prompt arrival. No shipping damage! Easy installation. Quality seems good.
Fits my 2002 Ford Ranger 3L XLT
December 26, 2019
Using free shipping, got it 2 days before estimate. Although the box has a rip/puncture there was no damage. Following the instructions from the video I took my time to install it myself. Only snag was getting the trans cooler fittings to line up so no cross threading. My trucks steel lines have a steel clip holding the 2 lines tight in parallel. Once I removed that clip with pliers I was able to move the line around so the nut would catch and tighten. Filled with fresh coolant and no problems.

July 2, 2020
This radiator was a direct fit for my 2000 Ford Explorer. Removal and installation was pretty easy. I'm a "backyard mechanic", not a pro. It came packed very well, no issues. I recommend this radiator to anyone, go for it!

radiator purchase & install

Purchase was easy as always. Delivery arrived before scheduled. Install was easy thanks to 1A Auto video. What more can I ask for? Thanks 1A Auto!
Fit like original in 2003 Ford Ranger 4.0
October 13, 2020
Of course time always tells with any replacement part, but this radiator went in pretty easily and works perfectly. The thing to remember about 1A Auto--and what puts it miles ahead of the competition--is the extremely well done installation videos they make. They've obviously hired a professional to produce them, making them far better than the poorly lit, jerky, hard to understand ones typically found on YouTube. I've marked their website as a "Favorite" and have already bought a radiator fan--again with an excellent installation video--last week.
Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
My truck is a flex fuel. Is it the same radiator?
May 24, 2016
Will this radiator work on 4 wheel drive?
June 13, 2017
Yes, as long as the other engine specifications match our listing.
June 13, 2017
June 14, 2017
depends on the year , but yes they are the same
June 15, 2017
Do I have to use the transmission cooler on this and if not what do I have to do to block those lines?
November 21, 2017
If your vehicle is an automatic transmission, then you will use your transmission cooler. If your vehicle is a manual transmission you may use rubber plugs to block these additional holes for fittings.
November 22, 2017
My cooling lines are 16 mms connector size will this fit my truck?
December 27, 2018
This part is specific to vehicles with a particular set of options. We will need more information about your vehicle to confirm the fit.
December 27, 2018
I noticed that the one inch top and bottom rail leaves a one inch space on the top and bottom of the radiator that the two inch top rail does not leave. Does this reduce the cooling efficiency of the radiator?
September 23, 2019
Installed this radiator in my 03 ranger edge 3.0 about 2 years ago and have had no problems. I also replaced water pump & thermostat.
September 23, 2019
I installed the radiator in a 2003 Ford Ranger XLT 3.0. There was a plastic strip attached to the top of the original radiator that I removed and attached to the new part with zip ties. The strip is formed to fill the gap. After a year of driving here in the Arizona desert the radiator has performed as I expected.
September 23, 2019
This radiator is built to your vehicle's exact OEM specifications and has the same cooling capacity as the factory part. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
September 23, 2019
We have experienced many 95 to 102 degrees heat this summer and my gauge never goes pass normal heat range. It performs very well in my V6, 4.0l engine. Never a problem.
