mad Found out y Car's overheating radiator Leak

THe bloody radiator is leaking out of the right side when you look under the cars bonnet. Only small trickles but its definaly leaking and the temp on hot days is pretty hot not in the red but hotter than usuall. Whats the best way to go fixing this. I just brought ef thermo fans to replace the clutch fan today and when looking where to mount theres the leak. So there goes the exitment and out comes more cash.

Ok the radiator has places for this thermo fan so should i just get the old radator fixed. Or should i buy a new one.

Any1 got any idea the price of a new one or the price of getting it repared.

Thanks steve

Is it coming out of the radiator or the plastic end tanks?

New radiator for XG (similar but not 100% the same) was $230. But I had the whole system recond (new heater hoses, rerouted gas hoses which weren't setup right and bypassed too much water) cost my $800 all up, and dont use Tectalloy, the best stuff is PrixMax RCP+

Run Forrest , Run.......

If its from the plastic tanks, just have a raditor joint replace it, less than $100 if you remov/replace it, get them to clean the core while they are at it too.

If its a hole in one of the rods in the core and you don't want to spend much, the radiator joint can block it off, again get the core cleaned. Don't worry, blocking off one rod will hardly effect the cooling ability.
