Radiator Damage - Front End Collision : 2002 Toyota RAV4

Car Model: 2002 Toyota RAV4
Location: Lookout Mountain, GA Submitted on April 3, 2013

I (stupidly) rear ended someone yesterday and the front bumper bent into my radiator. It leaked fluid, smoked and hissed for about 5 minutes. I've driven it about 30 miles never going over 50mph and it's done fine - no overheating. 

Where should I take it? Will I need a new radiator or can a puncture like this be fixed?

    You have a ac condenser in front of the radiator so you may need a couple of things and be carful not to overheat the car. I did a search on the repair shop locator and found this repair shop for you. Tell them Gene from Mechanicadvisor.com recommend them and they will help you

      what is the problem
      When moving forward or backward and without hands on the wheel, the wheel turns or "pulls" as if it is out of alignment. The problem just started.
      What is the repair?
