Welcome!

Radiator shouldnt matter as long as its for an Ion.

As far as transmission and clutches on these cars.
The trans is a weak spot. And as far as the clutch goes, slave and clutch master are both prone to failure if the car is abused.

Do you have gears when the car is off? Or you just Cant find gears at all?

Welcome. Are you in the Denver area? That's where I am (Littleton actually). It would really be great to get together with someone from this group. Mostly everyone else seems like they live on the east coast. Anyway I have an 06 RL with comp package. I don't have any mods on it yet, but everything works just fine on it. Such a fun car, you'll have so much fun when your trans is fixed. Look forward to chatting!

Nice! That's so crazy. Yeah I got mine last year, and I don't know if it has either of the Gm packages, or anything else. I have had a chance to put it on the dyno yet, so I don't know the exact hp. But yeah, I'll get some more pics up so everyone can check it out.
