Don't spend time or money on radiator leak sealant or a used radiator, has your new radiator.

What is radiator steam erosion? Steam can breakdown the plastic radiator tank that will produce thinning of the tank wall and ultimately holes in the plastic auto car part. Frequently, soft and/or melted places on the tank or white deposits at the filler neck are also found. A thermostat stuck in the closed position is the fundamental cause of steam erosion in your cooling system. You may also notice melted plastic residue, which will plug the tubes of the radiator and ultimately lead to overheating. Radiator leak sealant will not be a long-term solution for your cooling system tester.

Erosion of the plastic tank will eventually require more than radiator leak sealant. It's unwise to spend time, energy and financial resources on a used radiator when you can purchase a new radiator at for the same price but with the addition of a lifetime warranty.
