If you mean the plastic overflow tank, replace it. If you mean the plastic tanks on either side of the radiator core, replace the radiator.
A two part epoxy for $3.00 should do the trick, just follow the directions. I did mine two years ago and I run antifreeze/coolant.See: http://www.urethanesupply.com/radiator.html I have a crack in mine as well with a slow leak, my mechanic on a cadillac had the same problem and had to be replaced. If you have a better answer let me know. FYI I did find one onhttp://www.partstrain.com/products/Radiator/1995~CHEVROLET~CORSICA.htmfor $119.00 plus a little freightI went to a radiator shop and they have a proses they use to fix them i got mine done for $50.00

If the radiator cracks on top or bottom (bolth sides are plastic) ........ replace the radiator, can't be properly repaired.
Replace the plug.
The radiator is more than likely plastic and cannot be repaired ..DO NOT use any of those quick fix things like the radiator repair crud .. just take it like a man and replace the radiator............
There are several possibilites. You need to take your car to a tune-up shop and have it diagnosed.
Is it leaking from the side by the coolant reservoir?
A replacement radiator would be the best thing.
The parts that are needed to fix a car radiator depends on what is wrong with the radiator. It would be best to have the radiator fixed by a professional.
You have to find the leak in order to know what to fix. I would suspect you have a leaking radiator, but that is a guess based on your description.
The first step that you can take to fix a radiator is to see if it needs to be bled. To bleed a radiator you will need a radiator bleed key. Unscrew the valve at the side of the radiator and when the first drop of water comes out, close the valve again. If this does not fix the radiator you will need to call in a plumber.
$150-200. Sometimes its better to buy a new one.
If you just asking how much a new one is I just replaced one on my 1995 Corsica and it cost a little over $70. That was just the price of a new one I did the work myself.
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
Fixing the rocker panels on a 1995 Chevy Corsica will not compromise the frame. Fixing this will help the vehicle last longer as far as rust goes.
Check the temp sensor. Also, if the AC compressor is on the radiator fan will be on, so turn off the defroster and the AC.

For metal radiators, ideally, it needs to be braised (not usually a do-it-yourself job). However, if there is too much metal fatigue, it must be replaced. For plastic radiator parts, ideally, the part should be replaced, and any other plastic radiator parts should be inspected for signs of impending failure since they are likely to have similar life spans.
If the hose is leaking buy a new one the "release valve" may be the drain for the system that is usually located on the opposing side of the radiator from the lower hose connection open the main radiator cap slowly before doing this you may get as much as 1.5 gallons maybe less if there was a leak
