Neither. Replace the radiator! You'll be better off in the long run. EBay or rockauto has reasonably priced radiators. HTH. -Jim

Thanks yall. It was dark so I tried to research online what the coils were made with, no luck. Any suggestions on finding that info for the future? Also I totally plan to replace the radiator but I've been real tight the last bit and just been using the bandaid method til I can do so. Also my wife wrecked her very nice, new car so it's my only transport. With 5 kids, there's not many hours I can devote to replacing it.
