Replace the radiator.

Try JB Weld or JB Kwik Weld on the crack first -- you can pick it up for $4 and it is definitely worth a shot.

I have tried the jb weld it didn,t work . I had to buy a new raditor


I work in a shop where we routinely replace the plastic tank. If you have to repair the plastic tank then do it from the inside. You can separate the tank from the core by carefully loosening the aluminum tabs holding it in place.

How much should it cost to fix a Filler neck on a 1999 subaru?

If you mean the filler neck on the radiator, that requires replacement of the plastic tank on the radiator. If you have a mechanic pull the rediator and a radiator shop replace the tank with a new one and then put the repaired radiator into the car, it should cost about $225.00. That's $25 for the tank and gasket and the rest is labor. If you were to remove the radiator and take it to a radiator shop yourself and they fixed it and gave it back to you, expecting you to put it back in the car, that should cost about $80.00. Prices are approximate and these are what a shop in Florida charges.

I advise you do not use that crap you'll get more problems because of it. Check the radiator for the leak find it and repair it with LIQUID JB WELD if you cant find it in the car pull the radiator out and check for cracks and rusty colors on the plastic sides where cracks maybe and on the coils jb weld can repair it if you let it sit for 12 to 24 hours before reinstalling the radiator if you cant find the leak take it to the radiator repair shop and get it fixed cheaper than buying a new and please don't use that stop leak crap it will damage your engine and could clog up your heater core in the dash and then your talking about $500.00 or more to fix it. So shop wisely and find a shop that you rely on and get it fixed quick and easy also remember if the crack is to bad a radiator repair shop can replace the plastic sides on the radiator.
