Well on my Accord. You can see right in the engine bay on top of the radiator near the cap DENSO. Personally, I've never seen an Accord that wasn't Denso. Very weird.

Go see if you can see it, let us know.

Thanks for the ouick reply Tyler...I forgot to mention that the radiator had been replaced before and it is not indicated with either type radiator. I did call a radiator supplier and he said it was probably a Denso. I'm just curious on what the difference would be.

This is a shot in the dark, but if the VIN starts with a "J", there's a 99.9% chance it started life with a Denso.

It may be neither now. I'd call the dealer for a quote and see which one they say you have from the VIN.

You're on it Mike M...I had good service at most of the businesses I talked to .... so Next time I go to the dealer, I will have a better set of questions to ask.
I did learn that one of the local dealers had a cross reference on both the DENSO and the VALEO that was the same. I have not yet looked to see what my VIN is..
so...OK, my VIN number starts... 1 HG...?
I bought the cross referenced rad.....and the only difference that I encountered was a little bit of difference in the mounting points of the Passenger side cooling fan....
It had clips that could be moved to accomadate the fan shroud size...where the diver side fan/shroud fit perfectly.
B.T.W....the manufacturer of the radiator is C S F....Everything seems to be back to normal...so Happy New Year ...and Thank You for all the help and Info..

I bought the car last year and put about 6,000 miles on it so far...I did see failure on the radiator before I bought.....It is a local retailed radiator with the Name ..."Performance"./..I will neaver again buy a Performance or Modine radiator again....JUNK.
The history of the car is that it had some damage before I bought it that affected the transaxle and possibly the radiator or their connections...??
The trans axel was replaced and really runs flawlessly....and I'm going to assume that the radiator might have been replaced at the same time.....A Guess.
The car runs great......it's almost boring . But I Like it.

I have a '94 landrover...and if you ever want to see "NOT BORING", I can show you
