Asked by Dec 23, 2014 at 11:23 AM about the 1996 Chevrolet Lumina

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have tried "stop leak" and it didn't
help...still leaks. How can i fix this crack/
Leak? Is there anything i can put on the
crack area on the outside of the
connector?  The car does not overheat, it
just leaks some and I make sure it has
antifreeze. Please help...can't afford a new
radiator. Thank you

the plastic can't be repaired- if you can't afford a new radiator, you SURE can't afford a new engine- find the money somewhere- my sympathies-
