Can i solder a crack on my radiator to stop a leak?

Hi I've seen some pro's solder a radiator up, but because of the thinness of the vanes it probably isn't something you might do yourself. However a trip to Pep Boys or Auto Zone will turn up at least three or four product that you pour into your radiator and, unless you have Niagara Falls coming out of there, they have a reasonable chance of sealing it from the inside. Personally I have used one called Barr's, but that might not be available in the States. Phil

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

How do you de-solder?

To de-solder there are two ways: 1. Use a solder sucker (a tool that practically just sucks in air), to use it melt the solder whit the soldering iron and then place the solder sucker next to the melted unwanted solder and use the solder sucker to suck it off. 2. (I prefer this one) Use a strip of copper, simply place the strip of copper on the solder and then place the soldering iron on top of the copper. The heat will transfer to the solder and melt it, so (when the solder is still partly melted) just pull the copper strip and the solder should come with it. NOTE: do not touch the copper strip with your hands it will burn you.
