This really sucks. I popped my hood and there was a little bit of coolant sprayed around and I could hear pressure leaking from the top of the radiator. I put my finger over it and found that the hole is just a couple pinholes big(right at the top of the radiator). I have checked the coolant resovior and there is pleanty of coolant left. THis is a very slow leak but it is very anoying. Is this fixable......or do I have to buy a new radiator. Does this kinda crap just happen or was this sabatoge? =) I have a 94TT BPU 6spd with almost 100k miles on it. Any suggestions.

you have a 7 year old sports car with ~ 400 hp at the crank shaft. The cars are reliable BUT it is not a a camray and shit is going to break. Deal with it.

I realize that stuff is going to go wrong with my car and I know it is 7 years old and I'm am dealing with it........why else would I be looking for an answer on supra forums? What the hell kinda useless responce was that? Thanks for nothin.
Anyways, i was looking for help...not trying to complain. But hear is the answer I was looking for incase anyone else has the same problem.
Go to an auto parts store and buy J & B weild. It is a two part mix that seals radiator leaks very well.

I would suggest getting another one. Since we cant see the damage take it to a radiator shop. They will knowif u can get it repaired or not. I would suggest getting the Fluidyne one. IT's better and cheaper than the stock one.

whatever you do DO NOT PUT any type of STOP LEAK in your car. JB weld looks like shit but will work-as long as you let it dry and don't start the car until it is dry

I'll sell you my old used 6 speed 93 radiator cheaply. Off a 93, 6 speed with about 92k on the clock.

Yep, just look at it as an opportunity, or excuse to put a nice-ass fluidyne in there. I think you can get them for just over $420 from absoluteradiator.com
Only consider the JB for holding out until the new rad comes in :D
