What years and model's radiator will interchange with my 2001 Pontiac Bonneville SSEI 3.8 with automatic transmission?

Hi Russell:
It seems the way they make radiators now, the question is almost the other way around. The idea is that radiator manufacturers want a radiator that will fit as many makes and models as possible.
The approach that I would take would be to go to LORDCO (or your favorite parts store) and get the info that I needed as to the code for the radiator that was needed for your vehicle. You could then try contacting your favorite vehicle salvage company and ask if they have that radiator available.
Just a hint, any used radiator of that age will probably be nearing the end of its service life.
Hope this helps.

I have a 99 K1500 Suburban with a weak 4l60e trans. I have a 97 Suburban 4l60e trans available. Will they interchange?

yes. 96-99 are the same. 95 are different. 94-88 are the same. thats the most i can tell you off the top of my head. As long as the trannis are the same type they'll fit. For example a 700r4 from an 86 will fit into a 88 with a minor adjustment. But an 86 700r4 will not fit into a 86 that had a TH-400 without major changes. So as long as they're both 4L60E within the years mentioned above they'll interchange just fine.

Will a 2001 4.3 fit a 95 4.3 I have a 2001 Rolled s10 blazer w a 4.3 and an automatic trans will this fit and work in a 1995 s10 blazer that had a 4.3 and an automatic transmission

Yes it will but your going to have to also transplant the ECM. The change off years to the Blazers are 1992 to 1995 and interchangeable, 1995 being the odd ball year for the 4.3, and in 1996 to 2002 are all drive-train interchangeable. Good luck and keep me posted if you have any more questions.

I can't find a way to remove the fuse box off my 89 merkur xr4ti. And a couple of the fuses get so hot they melt. What would cause that?

bad main ground, there should be one bolt holding it down, look in the engine compartment around were the box is mounted!! maybe a clip holding it in place. good luck

Need a new windshield for the 89 merkur scorpio Also i have had two engines overheat in this car. anything i can do diffrently?

If electric fan comes on as it should, the only item in common to both engines is your radiator. Have it flow tested and boiled out or replace it. The odds of having two engines with the same problem are not good. If it's automatic, you could use a separate trans cooler to lessen the load on the radiator but if plugged, the benefit will be marginal.
