How can you fix a radiator leak?

There are radiator sealants available at many auto parts stores. I personally have never been able to get them to work though another good way to seal a leak if it is on the aluminum part of the radiator is to solder it with silver solder. However, in general the only real solution is a new radiator. if your in a bind and your desperate and just so happen to have eggs available keep in mind that you can throw a couple of them in your radiator when its still warm and the eggs will cook and when they do they will fill the cracks a little so you can limp it somewhere, no racing.. hope this helps... oh ya do this while its running for those of you with less common sense than us other people

Where do i add radiator sealant in 2000 saturn?

On a 2000 Saturn you should probably replace whatever part is leaking rather than gum it up with a sealant. If you must use a sealant you would remove the pressurized radiator cap.(This cap may not be on the radiator on all models. It may be located on a plastic surge tank located separate from the radiator.) Once the engine has reached full operating temperature add the sealant in to the rest of the coolant. Top off the coolant and replace cap. Run engine or drive for 10 minutes. Then shut the car off and allow to cool completely. NOTE:Radiator sealants will not stop leaks of rotating shaft seals(water pumps). Additionally, modern engines such as the ones used in Saturns have tight engine clearances and small water passages through aluminum parts. Sealants are a safe bet to use on the over-sized cast iron engines of days of yore, but a modern engine is isn't made for that kind of gunk surging through its veins.

How does a radiator work?

AnswerRadiators work by radiating heat into the air and cooling the engine. Coolant flows through the engine block and then to the radiator. The cooling fan helps keep the radiator cool allowing the heat to be put out into the air. This is correct
