I would say the most inexpensive way to repair this is to get a good used radiator at a salvage yard near you. If you're handy with wrenches you should be able to save yourself some BUCKS $$ going this route.
I would buy a new one if I were you. Salvage yard ones have been sitting around with no coolant, rotting. You want to take the chance of destroying your motor? A used one will go bad soon too. Might as well start fresh.
Stop-Leak is the cheapest way to fix a small leak, but it is only a temporary measure. If coolant is really gushing out of the radiator, it's best to replace it or have a radiator shop repair it. Trying to cut corners here is like jumping over dollar bills to pick up pennies. BUY A BRAND-NEW VIRGIN, FRESH-FROM-THE-FACTORY RADIATOR!! Most come with a warranty. It is risking severe overheating and possibly blowing a head gasket or destroying your motor. $100.00 for a new radiator is much cheaper than $1000.00 or more to replace a head gasket or a motor.
For a small leak idle engine, top radiator with water crack open a fresh egg and drain into radiator.
this might sound funny but if you cant afford to buy a new one at this time you need it try black pepper in it,works like stop leek and is cheaper,and you can get it anywhere.
IF THE LEAK IN THE RADIATOR IS RELATIVLEY SMALL JUST CRACK AN EGG INTO THE RADIATOR THROUGH THE CAP, ALTERNATIVLEY USE A BOTTLE OF RADWELD IN THE SAME WAY
Depends where it's leaking, but basically you fix it the same way you fix any coolant leak. <><><><><> Generally, its a hose that is leaking. You find the leaking hose, and you replace it, being sure to properly treat the ends with anti-leak compound. If its the radiator, you need to replace that. If its the intake manifold or head, you are getting into big bucks to replace the gasket involved.

You can try putting some "Stop Leak" in your radiator, but the only proper way is to remove the water pump and replace the gasket and the Pump too if it's leaking.
The only way to find out is to have a look it could be anything.
easiest way is to fill radiator and look and see where fluid is coming out, but Im sure you thought of that. The best way is to plug the ends of the radiator up with some type of rubber stopper then insert blow air through the drainport while holding it under water. Wherever the bubbles are coming from is where its leaking.

The way you stop your water pump from leaking on a Ford Transit Lorry depends on why it is leaking. The most common fix is to replace the gasket on the water pump.
Buy a bucket of tar, and just spread it on the hole/s
It depends where it's leaking from. I have had two previous cases of my truck leaking transmission fluid and both consisted of the pressure lines not being properly clipped on or a bad hose. It could be a old or faulty gasket inside the transmission box. Either way it would need replacing of the hardware. only way to fix it.
The way to fix the leaking shower in the game Virtual Families 2 is very simple. Take one of the people to the tool box in the workshop. They will grab a wrench and go to the bathroom to repair the leaking shower.

There is no safe way to repair a broken or leaking brake line. The line or tubing that is leaking must be replaced or a new piece of tube, spliced into the line with fittings, to replace the leaking area.
If the oil sending unit is leaking oil by the inside of the component, then I don't know of any way to fix that other than removal and replace with another one. If it is leaking by the threads, then you can try teflon tape to seal that. Also make sure it is leaking from the sending unit and not leaking down from the valve cover.
Adding pepper to the cooling system can work at times. It is in no way a sure fire way of stopping a leak, and is definitely not a long term fix or even a good idea.Adding pepper to the cooling system can work at times.

There are many reason for the leaks, either corrosion, freezing, shaking, etc. They can usually be repaired by draining the fluids, then removing the radiator and cleaning the seams, or pin holes areas with a fine wire brush, steel wool, scotch brite or something similar, then re-soldering the area. Another solutiuon would be to take it to a radiator shop where they will dip it to clean the inside well, then repair the seams. Radiators in most newer cars can't be repaired because of the way they are made(mostly plastic and aluminum. The best way and ONLY way to repair a leaky radiator is to replace it. Repair it and you will be repairing it again and again.
Did you get the hose clamps tight? Did you puncture a hole in the bottom of the radiator? Did you get the petcock closed all the way? You didn't overtighten the petcock at the bottom of the rad did you? Is your water pump good? Did you put thermostat in the right way?????????????
