well, Today I did not used the xj so I went out to rev it a bit so the fluids move a bit.. and I did not rev it more than 5 times when I notice that it was leaking coolant, I check the hoses and they are all dry,, I think I might have a crack radiator...

ok, so I took it in, and its a crack rad,, on lower left corner,, the thing is that the sides of the rad are plastic, and well there no replacement for that, so I would need a new rad, but Im looking for an all aluminum rad so it will be an upgrade....

Im thinking about this two,, the first not sure if its an all aluminum rad ... but it looks like it..

Aluminum radiators are cool. However before you buy, try to find out the cooling capacity. It could possibly be that the brass one has more capacity. XJs are notably kind of hard to cool, so go with the best you can get.
