Buy a new one, and make sure if the vehicle has a 3.8 v6 to have the headgasket checked..
Expensive, about $800. The nose has to be removed in order to replace the radiator. A good body man can help.
If You want a quick fix, you can use JB cold weld you can buy it at any auto parts place like checkers or pep boys... it's like 6 dollars and I don't know if its permanent but it's working for me so far.
When the current one is leaking or plugged.
well, go to the nearest auto store, and buy gas tank/radiator repair patch.
Buy a kit at Wal-Mart or auto parts. Comes witrh instruction, fittings and adaptors
buy a replacement plug and look closely at the threads .. that will allow you figure out what position to place it at in order to pull it out and replace it with a brand new one ... which is what your should do ...
It all depends on what size engine you have in it, if you have a 383 or larger I would get a 3 or 4 core radiator, a radiator shop can use your old radiator tanks and build you a new radiator pretty cheap.
buy the universal fluid at your local automotive store.
if u do it urself n buy the radiator for liek 120-150 bucks
I am unaware of the existence of a brake fluid radiator? There is Brake Fluid made by Radiator that goes into the Master Cylinder. I assume what is leaking is the master cylinder. If that is the case it is inexpensive to just replace the whole thing. Buy one at the autoparts store. Unscrew the brake lines running into the side of it. Then unscrew it from the power booster. Install new one and bleed the brakes. The whole thing should cost less than $50 and take less than an hour. (Make sure you buy a large bottle of brake fluid while at autoparts store or you will have to walk back to it)
It depends on how much is leaking out, if you park and loose a lot of Coolant then you more than likely need a new radiator which including labor and parts $450, you Might want to go to your local auto parts store and buy some radiator stop leak and follow the instructions, it's only about $7.50 an should fix it depending on where your leak is in your radiator. If that doesn't fix it you will need a new radiator. My blazer is in the shop right now and it's gonna cost me $450 for labor and parts. Best of luck!
Heater core is possible, coolant could be leaking externally onto engine and giving off that smell. Ruptured, cracked or leaking bypass hose; Ruptured, cracked or leaking heater hose; Worn or damaged radiator cap; Rusted, corroded, or damaged radiator may be leaking antifreeze/coolant; Loose, damaged, or faulty radiator drain plug; Worn or damaged cooling fan motor or circuit; Thermostat stuck closed; Cracked or leaking water outlet/hose; Damaged, worn or leaking water pump; Leaking or defective heater control valve; Freeze plugs are cracked or leaking. to smell burning anti freeze it would need to be leaking onto engine. most likely a small leak in a coolant hose somewhere, and even if it is heater core , it is sure not going to cost 500 bucks a heater core doesnt even cost 100 bucks to buy and they are easy to install
Oil drain plug or radiator? Buy a new plug at any auto parts store . Bring in the old plug to compair size.

You can buy a microwave leakage detector and it will show signs of leaking microwave energy...
Check the hoses and around the clamps to see if it is possibly leaking from there. Radiator sealer works fine on small leaks.If all else looks good you are on the way to have your rad repaired.(also check around the water pump,when they go they leak bad!!) if the sealant doesn't work and you can see where the leak is coming from, then remove the radiator, if necessary, drain it. you then need to clean the area where the leak is with a wire brush and alcohol. then get a small plumbers torch and some resin core solder and seal the leak. if that doesn't work you may have to have it recored or buy another one.
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

Well, you said it was leaking through a bolt by the coolant container. That is where the leak is. More than likely the reservoir is leaking.AnswerI had a 2000taurus that had a messed up reservoir leak right by a nub that held it in place. temporarily switched it out for a used one, that one cracked as well. had to buy a new one from ford costing about $60.00
Yes - the 87 420 and 560 are great cars and if the mileage isn't outrageous - say in excess of 250,000 miles, and the only serious problem is the radiator - buy it. they run forever - I know, I own one.
$150-200. Sometimes its better to buy a new one.
