Seeing your car is a 2001 I would throw a new radiator in there if it's original, even if it's a low mileage vehicle. 13 years of heating and cooling cycles take their toll on the plastics of the unit. It's short money for a MT $132.95 from my local source. It would really suck to get everything back together only to find a leak from reassembly.
Rubs the roundel on its skin or else it gets the hose again.
