Rick94 Posted February 3, 2004 Report Share Posted February 3, 2004 Well, the "inlet" (passenger side) radiator side tank has decided to start leaking this winter ('94 STS)... two tubes of BarsLeak hasn't helped. I know the advice here is to first try and re-crimp the side tank gasket... but, honestly, the clearance between the side tank and engine is SO tight, I can't really see a way to get the vise grips in there... So my question is: If I have to go to the trouble to remove the radiator (spilling trans fluid, engine oil, and coolant) to re-crimp, should I just take it to a radiator shop and have both side tank gaskets replaced, and the thing pressure tested? Anyone been down this road? Of course, I'm ASSUMING it's the gasket... could be a cracked side tank, which happened on a previous GM car. GRRRR... coolant leaks with both GM cars (also 3800 leaks between throttle body and upper plenum)... me not happy this week! Thanks!
