ou radiators have the plastic caps on the ends and can't be repaired like the old metal ones. if you want a cheap fix then you can try jb water weld. i've never used it but according to the package it should work pretty good. and don't use bars leaks.
for the love of God, don't use any coolant sealer or anything like that. it WILL screw things up, eventually. its just not a good idea and i would only suggest using it in an emergency(i.e. on the road and no way to fix it). just replace the radiator if thats where its leaking from.
what do ya'll think of jb water weld? new radiators aren't cheap. i replaced mine a couple years ago because it was leaking where the metal meets the plastic on the lower front passenger side and if i could have stopped the leak by slapping some jb weld on it i would have. my leak was just a dribble though so pressure wouldn't have been an issue for me.
