I have used radiator stop leak before in my 1996 Olds Achieva SC with the V6. I put it directly into the coolant resovor. It went in fine for me. This did not give me much help though. I would not recommend using stop leak. It will clog your heater core and then you will have more than the radiator as your problem. Fine a new radiator and replace it that is the best advidce i can give you.

Remove the radiator and replace it or have it repaired by a professional radiator repair shop. Go to Autozone buy STOP LEAK and pour it in the radiator or they have GLUE for leak problem.

Are you sure it's water? Sounds like your heater coil may be leaking...

Please, if you can possibly help it, don't use that crap in your engine-sooner or later the leak is going to get worse anyway so why not get to the problem now. That stuff will clog up your radiator, heater core, and any small water passages in your engine-trust me on this!

try a radiator cap......or you have a head gasket leak.

The radiator will leak, Its function is to hold water in a way as to cool it for the engine. So if it leaks, its busted.

If the radiator was not fitted in properly or the pipes were not attached correctly, the radiator would leak.

had my 1996 leaking oil through the oil sensor / regulator / thingy... left center next to spark plugs. wash your engine then let your car idle and yo9u should see where the leak is coming from, if u see no leak form then you need to rev your engine to get the oil pressure up. my part is 25bucks hope yours is the same or less ..

Unless your radiator has a leak, the radiator fluid stays in the radiator.

A bad radiator is a radiator that is leaking or clogged. If you are loosing coolant then you have a leak that should be easy to find if the leak is at the radiator. If it is clogged your engine will overheat.

You can use Radiator Stop Leak as a quick temporary fix.

For radiator leaks look for the following signs: The car will overheat Coolant level will frequently drop Pool of coolant or water under the car radiator Obvious leak noted from radiator on starting the car Faulty radiator cap causing the leak

Symptoms are: Loss of coolant with no apparent leak, engine overheating, white smoke from the exhaust especially at start up, overfull oil level, a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap, possible engine miss, & air bubbles escaping from the radiator with cap off.

IF THE LEAK IS FROM THE RADIATOR, THERE IS NO FIX EXCEPT TRY THE RADIATOR STOP LEAK CANS OF FIX....IF THAT DON'T WORK, GET A NEW RADIATOR. THAT'S ALL YOU CAN DO!!!!!!!!!!!

There may be a hole in the radiator?

Because you have a coolant leak. More than likely, from your description, it is a leak in the radiator or radiator hose. Do not let your vehicle overheat. Have this repaired ASAP.Because you have a coolant leak. More than likely, from your description, it is a leak in the radiator or radiator hose. Do not let your vehicle overheat.

Milky means that there is water in the fluid. You need to have the radiator checked for an internal leak.

check carefully for thin cracks on the radiator tanks(side plastic covers on radiator)you probably have to remove the radiator to get a better look. Also replace theradiator hoses if their old. If the leak continues then it's most likely your heatercore.

Broken or split hose Radiator leak heater core leak

Smoke from the radiator would be do to a leak evaporating off of it. Find the leak repair or replace necessary parts.

Add to radiator - but be careful some of these products will seal the heater core

can be water pump, radiator, heater core, thermostat housing, hose, or freeze-out plugs

The tanks on the radiator are plastic and the lines vibrate causing the tanks to leak were they screew into the radiator. REPLACE RADIATOR.
