According to NASRA, the National Automotive Radiator Repair Association, an automobile's age is the leading cause of radiator leaks. Your radiator is regularly exposed to debris that causes the metal in your radiator core to deteriorate, which causes radiator leaks. The most obvious sign of a coolant leak is coolant loss.
Finding the coolant leak is the next step once you have decided there is sufficient coolant being lost. Clean the radiator and hoses with water. Turn on the engine and inspect the radiator header and radiator tube for leaks. Soldering a leaky header can usually repair a header leak.
If the hoses are not the culprits of your leak, it may be your radiator itself. Radiatorinfo.com is your source for finding the right part when a "quick fix" is not the option.
