You gotta determine why it's leaking. If there is a hole corroded through a tank or cooling tube, you are wasting your money trying to patch it. I did that on mine one year. Six patches on six groups of holes in six weeks.

If just a hose is leaking, replace that. A leak that bad shouldn't be too hard to locate.
