What do I use to repair my 1996 Honda Civic CX radiator?

Asked by Apr 14, 2013 at 05:37 PM about the Honda Civic

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The top of the radiator is cracked.  I used J-B Weld. That held for about 10 miles, then blew the same crack in it.  What kind of expoxy can I use to seal this?

None. JBWeld is not going to do it as you have discovered. Your radiator needs to be taken to a radiator shop and soldered properly. No product from a can will fix it.
