Question about 2003 Kia Sorento
I'm a female colllege student with less montey than knowledge of cars please help me ..... My Radiator is leaking .... can i use Aluma Seal (Radiator stopleak)? or is there something better ? I h eard that struff is bad for the hoses what can I do>? Please help
About your best bet is either get a used radiator in good shape from a reliable junkyard or check prices for a reconditioned radiator from the store. do NOT ever put any stop leak materials into your radiator as a long-term fix. they can cause plugging which causes an overheat or blow hoses, stop leak materials will also eat away at hose linings. if you MUST use a stop leak material for SHORT TERM only, then use "Bars Leak" bottle and get a rebuilt radiator asap. As soon as you get the replacement radiator... make sure you run a hose with full water pressure through the old one and a radiator flush BEFORE you put the replacement radiator in so you don't end up with all that stop leak stuff settling into your new radiator!
