    How bad is the leak, can you fix it yourself?
    I have fixed some with a propane torch and solder.
    However it wasnt that too big of a leak and my fix lasted several years....

    We put a pin hole in ours the other day and picked up a new one at the slavage yard while we were there.... Not too expensive that way. Just a thought.
    Just make sure it doesn't come from a front-end collision. LOL

    I'd rather push my Chevy than drive a Ford!

    Cheapest is salvage yard or if you see one sitting somewhere not running. Last radiator problem I had I took it to a shop that does notheing but fix radiators and they took it completely apart, resoldered everything, pressure tested it and even painted it for $100.00. I did take it out and bring it to them loose and empty. Been using it for 5 years and no problems yet.
