RADIATOR LEAK

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee • 129,000 miles

What causes a radiator leak? Old age. Something hitting the radiator. Excess pressure? Appears that my radiator is leaking on the lower left corner. Was just wondering what may cause it so that I can replace any other causes while replacing the radiator.

Old age, a lot of heat and cool down cycles, and being plastic tanks for a couple of reasons. Also not changing antifreeze when you are supposed to and silicone/aluminum build up.
