Well, long story short. I have a hairline crack in the top of my radiator. Havent the slightest clue how it got there, but i'm sure its related to clearance issues between the radiator and the hood (eg radiator's a lil tall). My first thought was JB weld for a temp fix, but i'm not sure how that'll work on the plastic or under pressure. I've already applied a few layers and baked em on pretty good. How long do you guys think i have before it leaks again? I need to drive about 15-20 mins to the junkyard where i can get another radiator, but i dont wanna overheat and blow up my motor. TIA

it is VERY VERY easy to fix cracks in the plastic on radiators. Take your soldering iron and get it really hot, then melt it back together. With a crack (sorry had to fix alot more holes then cracks, from the pegs on the bottom breaking off) take and melt in the middle of the crack really deep, like maybe two passes then melt back the two bumps you just made on both sides of the crack.
