maydog Posted March 1, 2005 Report Share Posted March 1, 2005 It seems like the aurora is having a mid life crisis. I have been repairing this and that for the last few weeks. Recently I discovered a hairline crack in the plastic, passenger side of the radiator opposite of the inlet for the upper radiator hose. Fluid slowly leaks from the crack at a rate requiring coolant top offs every week. I first tried to use plastic weld epoxy to seal the crack, it held maybe a day. Then I tried super glue and a vinyl patch - the glue was brittle and didnt last long. Tonight I bought some stuff called quick steel putty, I roughed up the surface and applied a liberal amount of the putty. I am 50/50 on wether this will work or not . Is there some sort of product available to fix these types of cracks? I am picturing something like a fiberglass patch not unlike a exhaust repair kit. What are your experiences - I really do not want to replace the radiator with such a small and easily accesible crack. Much thanks as always - md Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
