SOURCE: Oil pan eplacement or repair?
You can try JB Weld after you get it off. I would not try any chances with an oil pan. If that oil pan pours out all of your oil going down the road you will ruin your engine. If it is cheaper to get it welded you can try that. I can't comment on removing that oil pan. You should be able to jack it up and look at it. If there is nothing in the way that you have to remove like a cross member, it should be a piece of cake. Best thing to do is to buy a manual for that can and decide for yourself it it will be easy for you to do. I am a Chevrolet person myself. I am not up on everything in every new car. I usually buy a book on every car that I get or work on. Sometimes something looks very simple and it turns out to be a big headache. I do not know what year your car is or how the motor sits in it. You could call a garage to be on the safe side. I can not make a call when I can not see it myself. I gave you the answer as to what I would do. Be careful not to strip out the bolts going back on. When you take it off you will be able to see the bottom side of your engine. If it is old you might want to think about doing anything that you can reach like changing the oil pump. Just some advice while you have everything at reach.
Do not take any chances on that oil pan. Good luck. Rate this as a Fixya if this solves your problem.

SOURCE: 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!!!

You can clean the area really good with degreaser and apply JB Weld but that is only a temporary fix it will leak again
