I need a new radiator as part of getting my XD2 GT back on the road, but the price just jumped $20 on the only one on RockAuto that says it's for a manual transmission. Can I use one for an automatic and just cap the trans cooler lines? Or do I need the manual-specific radiator? Thanks, hopefully ordering parts today so I'd appreciate any quick answer anyone could give!!
What's interesting is all the aftermarket places like Autozone, O'Reilly, and NAPA just list a single product, not transmission specific. I know it's obvious that I couldn't use a manual radiator in an automatic car, but I'm trying to think of what the effect would be if nothing was hooked to the trans cooler lines because I have a manual.
