Coolant leak

I found out I have a coolant leak but I don't have the cash to buy a new one. Is there a good way to stop the leak just for a few weeks until I can get a new one?

I assume you're talking about the radiator or the water pump? If so you can get some stop leak. It's only a temporary fix but will buy you a few weeks.

Most of the time stop leak is ok.but sometimes it can be bad.it can clog your radiator.in your case that not a big deal cause you plan on changinig it.but be careful cause it it not good for the rest of your coolant passages!

Just get ur rad repaired. A lot cheaper. I know a guy who found his leak so he drained it, used a little JB weld, let it set overnight, good as new..

I used the copper bars leaks in my old honda, held a couple years then traded it, it was still holding no problem.

Re: Coolant leak

Moroso Ceramic Seal used to be the best that could be had, but it cannot be used with antifreeze.

They also make Moroso All Weather Seal which should work almost as well.
