I have coolant leaking from what would appear to be the radiator itself. But then I noticed it only leaks when it's cold??? Once it heats up it doesn't seem to leak.

Was wondering if it could just be a seal or gasket that once it heats up and expands is fine, but might just need replacing? Also curious as to thoughts on radiator "Stop Leak" products. I noticed several different kinds and brands at Walmart. Anyone have any expirience with these products, and know whether or not they actually work?

Thanks for any input...............KC

I'm not sure where it's leaking from, but it seems to be coming from the coils. I could be totally wrong about that though! It doesn't over-heat even with the temps we've been having. It doesn't even run any warmer than it ever did. I just top off my resevoir about every 2-weeks. I know I'll eventually need to take it in to get it checked out, I was mainly curious about the stop-leak stuff. I kinda figured that it wouldn't be the best thing, just wanted opinions about it.

I sure appreciate the responses. I even checked to see what a new radiator for it would run, just in case it has to be replaced. The cost wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. But for now, I'm gonna see if I can limp along on it for another month.

Thanks again. Take it easy.............KC
