Not really sure myself either, although can't really tell if you have holes in it. Is it leaking anywhere? Is your car overheating? If so you probably need to replace it.

Well, I'm working on hat I can to improve my AC. Airflow and Cooling is one of the few things I can legally fix... I might replace the fan, too.

Well from what I've heard from various mechanic buddies is that the radiators are generally ok as long as you don't have any holes in the tubes. Its a pretty simple part, like most parts in cars, in all the vehicles I've owned I don't think I've ever had to replace a rad b4. They are pretty easy to rebuild as well I hear.
