Dom249 said:They brought my "plastic" radiator to see if it could be fixed and it couldnt so they had ordered me a new one. After I got home I checked it out and they did a nice job. I didnt go to the dealership though.In the reserve tank or w/e to the left of the radiator. It would go down like 3" after driving around for th day.Im glad I have a new one now and I have no more leaky:rockon
This is exactly what happened to mine. About a month ago I would noticed a smell that was like coolant fluid but I could not find the leak or see any liquid leaking anywhere and nothing was under the truck either. Last week I tried one of the Stop Leak bottles(there was 3 to choose from) and that didn't work.Dom249 said:I have no clue how mine cracked at the bottom but it just randomly decided to crack..I dont think anything hit it but no tellin how it happened
My friend told me pepper but i didnt use that. I used atleast 4 different sealants. Also the aluminum one like you said. NOTHING worked. I was loosing a quarter a day also in my resivoir tank. ALso when I brought it in at a radiato shop. They sent it to see if it could be repaired and it couldnt. I ad to get a new one. Best bet would be to just get a new one or try get it repaired.:crying: I know it sounds bad but its the only thing that fixed mine.By the way it was 647 or so at a radiator shop with labor for meFootloose301 said:This is exactly what happened to mine.

SO, this past weekend I shopped prices all around and Advance Auto wants $330 for a new one. Local Nissan dealership wants $540 for the radiator and a grand total of $754 with labor:futwice: What a joke.
SO, then this past Sunday I tried taking out the radiator myself(with dad lol) and wasn't able to do so. I wasn't sure what some of the stuff was under the hood and came across the metal hoses and connections and I ask "Dad, this looks like it goes to the A/C. I can't take that off can I?" and he responds "No, just take it off!". So, I start unbolting it on the drivers side and PUFF, SCCCCSSSS!! There goes a bunch of my A/C, so I tighten it up real quick and put everything back together and test the A/C and it works good. Then going to work Monday I make it into the parking lot and I hear the same sound. Apparently I didn't have it tight enough and the rest of my A/C is now gone.:fu:
So then I headed to Advance Auto after work and pick up a different type of Stop Leak(the aluminum type) and pour it in with brand new coolant fluid. I smell every now and then. I lose maybe 1/4" in the plastic reseviour each day.
Anybody have a cheap way to fix these. BTW, looks like the crack is at the bottom like most peoples here. My buddy told me to drop 2 eggs in there, I thought it was a joke, but he was being serious. I have not done that though.
I have a bit over 64,000 miles on it.
