Drain coolant from the cooling system. White plastic drain plug in bottom of radiator.
take off bottom rad. hose and top rad hose.
All wrenches and sockets are either 10 or 12 mm. Remove air shroud from around radiator and fan.
Sometimes its easier to remove fan too.
If its an automatic, remove 2 rubber hoses at bottom of rad.
remove 4 bolts top and bottom that hold rad. in place.
reverse order of parts. Fill with coolant and check for leaks.
That is the basics of it.

SOURCE: hole in radiator
Depends On The Size On The Hole And How Much You Have To Spend Also By The Location Of The Hole. If Its A Tiny Hole You Can Use Jb weld Purchasable At Most Auto Parts Store. If Its A Small Crack They Sell An Additive That Will Seal It At Any Auto parts Store.
If Its A Bigger Crack Or Hole You'll Need To Find Someone To Weld It For You.
For The jb Weld And Additive It May Not Last But In Some Instances Lasts A Really Long Time.

Summary: ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A 2.5L ENGINE, THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR CAN OVERHEAT CAUSING A BRIEF INTERRUPTION IN THE SIGNAL OUTPUT FROM THE SENSOR.

CERTAIN MY 2006 ALTIMAS WHICH HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY REMEDIED UNDER RECALL CAMPAIGN 06V223 (NISSAN R0606) ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THIS RECALL SINCE THE REPROGRAMMING FOR 06V223 ALSO INCLUDED THIS REPROGRAMMING.

you've answered your own question! You're cooling system has leaks possibly from your rad. You should have no leaks whatsoever.
I would also look to see if you have leaks anywhere else. Look under the car on the passenger side - see if you have leaks from the water pump. I would go to a radiator
repair shop. They will flush the system and check for leaks.
I wouldn't hang around or else you will damage your engine AND transmission. Which will be more money down the line.
