The outer part of the radiator is fiberglass and it has crack. mechanic says not a lasting cure if repaired. some says "tie-wrap" might be of help by soldering into the cracked part. is there...

Save yourself some headache, if you try to repair the crack it would not last too long. I would replace it. The cracks mean that the radiator has served its purpose.

My 1999 camry radiator has hairline crack on top.. how can i fix it

I'm sorry to say, you can't. You can take it to a radiator shop, and they may be able to fix it. Most radiators have to be able to withstand pressure of up to 35 psi. this is the safest way to handle it. You can remove and install your own radiator. as to repair or replacement, that will be up to the shop. If you repair it wrong, you can do major damage to your engine. Have a shop do it, you will have a warranty if anything goes wrong. This is a smarter move. I can weld, and I will not weld a radiator. I have the equipment in my shop at home. I still auto repairs, and build steel fences on the weekend, and am not comfortable about something like this myself. I hope this helps you make up your mind.

Plastic radiator repair

I doubt you can actually fix it "yourself", but you can save lots of money by taking it to a radiator shop instead of buying a used or new radiator. They can replace the plastic tank for the bad side, but it is usually the drivers side because this is where the hottest water exits the engine and causes the plastic to crack. I removed the radiator myself and took mine to a shop and they repaired it for $40........cannot repair yourself because the tank has to be crimped on!!!! And radiator "stop leak" products will not work because they are for metal tanks!!!
