I would say change them both. I had a car come in and the fins were corroded. Causing the car to overheat. Coolant in the oil. The cost of repairs is more then the first minor cost when compaired. Also 2 years is alot of time for something to happen. Good luck finding a good shop.

I have done this many times.

Just make sure your engine turns the right way or you will break/strip the bolt.
