I just had that tank replaced by Red Devil up here with a later model one. Those ones are apparently prone to cracking, as yours show.



***Edit***
Assuming it is the plastic tank that has cracked
*****

The tank cost $150. The labour for replacing that and lancing the radiator was $45. New Coolant that is apparently really good cost $50 for the 5 litres, but they do have a cheaper one.

Yeah that happened to my car when I first got it. The plastic tank isnt very strong and for some reason cracks in that same spot you have. I don't recommend you drive it around until ya get it fixed cos all your water will piss out and you migt blow a head gasket.

Anyways when I went to get mine fixed at natrad they said it would cost a lot to replace the side tank and it's better just spending a little extra for a new radiator. So thats what I did.

However recently I have seen a Ad here on TV for a place that does plastic welding. If I knew there was a place like that I would have got them to fix it. Check out the yellow pages and see if you have a plastic welder nearby.

Good luck

I had a blocked radiator which im convinced was directly related to a Anti Leak product I use in the water syste,.
Anyhow, I Ended up at Natrad, and picked up a new radiator for under $300.
I also replaced all the water hoses on the car, and gave the whole system a real good clean out.

I have had no cooling problems for the last two years.

Good Luck.

nah, you need to change the side tank to get rid of it because the milling sands build up in that, they take it off n replace it. so its the way to go
