damn cooling system...so i found out yesterday theres a crack in my radiator near the cap. Do i have to replace it or is there a way i could get it welded or sealed up other than having to replace it. Cuz they seem kinda pricey and i dont know how much longer im keeping this one thx

Replace it. Anything else might work temporarily, but the crack wil continue to propogate.

Edit: I forgot to say that you should check at www.radiators.com.

Got mine from there, fast shipping, and its an easy fix, Only should take a hour at most. I did mine in the school pakring lot up here in 20 min with no help. Its easy to do. Just be sure to get out all the air bubbles before you run the car with the cap on

Install a new radiator. You can't sell a car with that bad of a leak like that unless you tell them, and I don't think it's a good idea to present a vehicle up for sale as needing maintinence.
