Customer states…wait, look at this! can’t make this stuff up! – Auto Repair Chat

To avoid causing any confusion,I want to let everyone know that this grinder cut happens to be a design feature. The upper third of the part is the transmission cooler and the lower section is the A/C condenser. I wasn't able to find out why GM is making this cut. I can only surmise that it's being done to isolate the two separate sides to prevent heat transfer.

    Watching your videos and learning a lot. You have been a mechanic for a while. Like the one liners. Keep up the good work.

    Notorious problem on the newer Chevrolet and GMC trucks.

    Micro-channel coils like that, the condenser coil 'tubing' is like, the size of a paper-clip wire. Uses less freon overall.

    I literally had a radiator like that a month ago!

    Well, THAT was something you don't see every day! Wonder where that part was manufactured????

    Interesting that it had a yellow line like they knew it’s a bad part.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Caniglia says:

    Looks like the fault was found prior to your receipt, marked, and then accidentally put into stock. Unless you added the yellow mark.

    How the hell did that even happen at the factory? That's what I want to know. Then to ship the thing in a brand new box like "everything's fine, no one will notice."

    My ‘99 condenser is the old school kind with way bigger tubes that can actually be flushed. Still blows ice cold. Whats the point of tiny ones

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars E-Nonymouse says:

    haha, that part is already marked it looks like by QA staff, so you got sent a known bad part.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thomas Vaverka says:

    Correction it was brand new now it's just a used piece of s***

    Those trucks, Chevy, GMC and Cadillac have warranty extension , they leak at that exact same spot.

    Alrighty…Never buy a Sierra….I bet cars half the price have a better design lol
    Shameful.

    Interesting, always looked at the radiators and wondered how exactly coolant traveled through it. Thank you!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Wendte says:

    I am in appliance repair it's a crime when you get a new part in box, and someone reboxed their old part and sent it back.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jaguarist says:

    That's eazy to replace in west, but, try to do that here in the Philippines. Hah hah hah, if You didn't have gray hair, after processing this country's bureaucracy, then You definitely will have.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars subbuilder says:

    Oh, we need Pakistani technicians. They could fix the hole without replacing the entire unit.

    Braze it

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tom TKE says:

    all I gotta say as a retired senior citizen is: "you young guys inherit a really crappy world."

    Suppose the part was tested to be defective and so someone decided to MAKE DAMN SURE that it didn't get delivered? Someone else said, "watch this" and out the door it went! YIKES!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Rogers says:

    I've seen 5 radiators new in the box. With that saw cut.

    Extra venting for more cooling.
    They just took off more material to make it lighter. The car will be faster now.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brad Zittell says:

    It’s called micro channel condenser, we use these on commercial refrigeration

    Piss poor quality control at the dealer for failing to closely watch what is returned.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pete d says:

    Pretty obvious this was a scrapped warranty defective part that an un knowing tech installed (common prob as tech training and compensation has declined)
    Tell me it ain't so !

    I can't believe that radiator was were up like that being brand new

    This seems to be a common issue with ac Delco parts

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Spicy Muffin says:

    To me this looks like a destruction cut to void it being used. Then someone accidentally shipped it out.
