    Default Leaking radiator...

    After the missus pulled up at home today, a small patch of coolant collected under the car. Luckily she only travelled about 10min starting with a cold engine so there was no time for it to overheat.

    Leak is at the bottom right hand corner of the radiator (other side from expansion tank). Question is, is it worth reconditioning these things or shall I get a new one mailed out from the uk, it will cost me about $210 delivered.

    If it makes any difference, the car is an s16...

    Just make sure its not something as simple as the lower hose or a perished clip. Otherwise the new radiator is the way to go.

    Leak is on the opposite side of that hose. I just ordered a new one, can't go wrong at that price...
