This part was, as advertised, a direct fit and an easy replacement for the radiator in my GM 2001 Chevy Lumina. I note two things: 1) a prior reviewer had said it came with the radiator cap and I note that it does not (nor did I expect it to). 2) also helpful for other DIYers is to know that you will either need to buy new "quick connect" fittings for the transmission cooler part of the radiator or re-use the old ones (you can't really see these in photo to know if you get them or not and you do not get them). My old ones were rusted in place and I feared damaging the tranny lines if old fittings torqued too much when removing them. New fittings were only $8.00/each from the Chevy dealer (bring Vin# to insure exact match) and It was much cheaper in time and labor to get new ones and simply screw them into the new radiator and then disconnect tranny lines from old "quick connect" fittings and quickly pop them into new fittings. Dealing with Pep Boys's on- line order system was also a breeze. Overall, I rate this purchase as well as the purchase process an A+.--Plus radiator comes with a 3yr warranty.
