It may work as a temporary fix.
Yes, crack it on the side and leave it to cool.
If it is a small leak, stopgap products like StopLeak can be used, but the radiator will eventually need to be replaced
Take the radiator to a rad shop to be fixed. This is not typically a DIY fix. If you feel the need to save some money by doing some of the work, remove the radiator yourself and bring it to the shop, the repair will be cheaper. Otherwise, take the whole vehicle in to be repaired.
i have a 2000 mazda 626 with a 1744 code. i was able to pull the code but my scanner wont tell me what it is for. what does this code represent and how do i fix it?
IF THE LEAK IN THE RADIATOR IS RELATIVLEY SMALL JUST CRACK AN EGG INTO THE RADIATOR THROUGH THE CAP, ALTERNATIVLEY USE A BOTTLE OF RADWELD IN THE SAME WAY
If the radiator cracks on top or bottom (bolth sides are plastic) ........ replace the radiator, can't be properly repaired.
A replacement radiator would be the best thing.
if its in the reservoir it should be in the radiator of it is then it has a blow head gasket or a crack head
this may sound crazy but crack about 2 or 3 eggs in it ,it worked in my 90 model escort.
Nine times out of ten, the best fix for hose problems is to replace them, assuming the clamps were tight to begin with.
