barrs stop leak will work on most smaller holes and cracks if you can not find that you could try silver stopper also found at most part stores

If you can see the crack, you could use some fine sandpaper (when it's cool) and sand down the area to be patched, then wipe it clean, and apply some 'quicksteel' compound- found at most hardware or auto supply stores. JB weld works well, too. Ideally, since quicksteel sets fast, put this on first, wait an hour, then apply a thin coat of JB weld on top, and let it sit overnight before driving. You may even put some stop leak fluid for good measure.

I do know of a solution to this problem. If the crack is just a small one there is a tablet you can get at any Automotive Repair store. It's called Radiator Repair its a small "tablet" you drop in your radiator and let the car run, as it warms up you will notice the crack disappear. Other than that JB Weld is a good bet if you know where the leak is generating from.

How can you repair a crack in your plastic radiator?

I had 2" crack on top of the radiator. I tried JB Weld and other similar putty but they did not work on plastic. I bought Permatex PermaPoxy™ 5 Minute Plastic Weld from Advanced Auto Parts for $7. It took 10 minutes to finish the job and it worked.
