Depends on what type of radiator (copper, aluminum, or aluminum and plastic) and where at the leak is. in most cases you just clean the area where the leak is with a wire brush or light sandpaper. then with a brazing rod or sauter just weld over the area. if its an aluminum radiator with plastic tanks(a common type) them its most likely leaking at the clamp weld where it changes from plastic to aluminum (they are notorious for leaking there as plastic and aluminum expand differently as they heat and cool and over time will start leaking at that point) . in that case you may be able to temporarily fix it my applying JB weld or some sort of apoxy resin if your tight on money but if you can afford it you should just replace it.

I'm trying to find out how to fix my radiator leak to my 1995 Oldmobile Achieva


There's a product called "Barr's Stop Leak" that provides a temporary fix...but when you have a radiator leak, its best to either get it fixed at a radiator shop or depending on model...get a replacement.
By just patching a leak...you are putting your engine at risk.

Coolant leaking from bottom right corner area of radiator. not sure if its radiator or hose connection. is there a hose connection in that area? how do i fix? no money for new radiator.


should have lower radiator hose in that area..

if your radiators leaking, as opposed to replacing it you can go to a radiator repair shop and have them fix it for a fraction of the price of a new one

Leak seems to be coming from bottom of radiator on drivers side


If your radiator is leaking, you have several repair options:
You can try the cheap fix and add a bottle of cooling system sealer to the radiator. These products are designed to seal small leaks. They can also seal internal engine leaks. Some work better than others, but most provide only a temporary solution to your problem.


You can attempt to repair the radiator yourself. Copper/brass radiators on older vehicles can often be soldered to repair leaks. Cracks or pinholes in aluminum radiators in newer vehicles can often be repaired with epoxy glue. But if the core is severely corroded or damaged, the radiator may have to be professionally repaired at a radiator shop, or replaced with a new radiator.

Hope help with this.
