I've got a small leak right under the 2003 9-5 top radiator hose. That rad is 17 rears old.

I removed the rad crimped it tight...

But a replacement manual radiator is 2x cost of the radiator for the automatic.

Does the automatic radiator (with oil cooler built in) have enough cooling for the manual transmission vehicle?

yea, just get the automatic one and leave the plugs in the cooler holes. Same engine and without any additional heat going into the oil cooler side the radiator had that much more cooling power.

Buy radiator @ Rock Auto, great price for auto model. Just had to replace mine in the 02 Aero manual.
