Default Looking for advice on rad issues

So, my rad is leaking around the bottom. I'm a student and prefer the wreckers to anything for replacement parts. What I was wondering if I was able to grab a rad from an integra and put it in my civic? May be a dumb question, but I was just wondering whether that kind of thing is interchangeable. Thanks.

Hey there mate, i used to work in the automotive rads industry here in Scotland .as long as the core sizes and thickness of the radiatorare the same also check the locating pins are in the correct place to your own rad, over here some of the integras and civics are the same sono harm in tryin your luck i say ,
Good Luck.

i dont think a teg radiator will fit on a civic. im pretty sure its a lor wider u can get an oem replacement our of ebay for pretty cheap or better yet get an aluminum one out of ebay no name radiators , they work just fine and are much better replacement that oem plastic ones. ur radiator problems WILL be over once u swap an aluminum one in there
