Obviously, you bought your Matador because you wanted to buy power and American style both rolled up into one vehicle. American Motors automobile enthusiasts have become used to a certain level of dependability when driving their Matador around town. The vehicle in your driveway is head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to all the cars, trucks, and SUVs in today's marketplace. It's not every day that you discover you need a replacement Radiator to repair your vehicle.
Your vehicle has a water-cooled motor, and without a functioning radiator core that cooling liquid would be too hot to be effective. The heat produced by the combustion process gets absorbed by an ethylene glycol based liquid, and that coolant has to enter your American Motors Matador radiator through the top and flow down to the bottom so that it can reduce its temperature. When it leaves the radiator and re-enters the engine, it can now absorb more heat. Your American Motors Matador relies on this process happening on a continuous basis in order to maintain regular operations.
