Radiator Damage - Front End Collision 2002 Toyota RAV4

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

Lookout Mountain, GA

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 recommend them and they will help you
