$631 to fix, or $8 for GM coolant tabs to see how those go.

Tabs for the win!


Is that the dealer price or your price to fix?

As others have said swap the relay first and see what happens. Keep an eye on the coolant level.

Once a plastic radiator starts to leak, it usually gets worse rapidly. Replace it.

It's code for "we're all neurotic about maintaining our vehicles and treat them better than our own bodies."

That’s supposed to be used as temporary fix until you can fix it not a permanent repair. Cooling system sealers tend to make a royal mess of the rest of the system. Good luck.

My response?

NOT

MY

PROBLEM.

I did her a favor, and she can spend the money once it leaks noticeably. I may try to J-B weld the seam where it's leaking.
