My 92 pajero keeps overheating after driving for approximate 10-20kms. I have filled radiator n reservoir and it is still boiling and using alot of coolant/water. Please help as I only just bought this...

First check to see if coolant is flowing through radiator, check cooling fans to make sure they work when it reaches hot temperature. If it's not flowing, check thermostat to see if it's opening.

2005 kida sorento radiator top plastic piece is sperating from the metal bottom piece.

there are 2 possible fixes
one is to have the top tank replaced by a radiator repair shop
Two is a new radiator
as the first cost is around 1/2 the price of a new radiator , the advantage of a new radiator is , you get new top and bottom tanks and a new radiator core that has no blockages and new fins on the core at the stated year the new radiator will be quicker and better choice

I have a 1994 jeep cherokee sport. The radiator leaks at the plug where the fill tube is. Can that plug be removed and glued back in place?

not sure if it is designed to come out or not, but if it is leaking then i would try anyway.
a radiator leak can go from minor to major at any time as i have found out to my cost and should be repaired as soon as possible.

if it can be removed and reglued so it does not leak then it has to be cheaper than replacing the radiator and must be worth a try

Radiator leaks somewhere at the top and wondering if it can be patched. obviously depends on where and how big of a leak, but is it worth trying to patch or just replace it


To fix your 13 year old radiator at a shop will cost you $80-$100, To get a new aftermarket radiator at an AutoParts store will run about $185 + tax. If your leak is not too big and can wait a couple of days, have one for about $140. Honestly, I would go for one of the new ones!!

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.

Leak undeneath upper radiator hose

The radiator on your Focus is mostly plastic on the top and bottom, and the middle section is aluminum/ alloy. If you examine the radiator, and are sure it isn't leaking from the hose connection, then the radiator will need repaired. sometimes, small leaks in the middle , metal section are sealed just by using some radiator stop leak in your engine's coolant. A radiator shop can replace the top or bottom plastic piece on your radiator too, and often it is a good idea to check the price of an entire radiator at your local auto parts store, as sometimes you can buy a radiator for less than the cost to repair your old one.
