2001 GMC 1500 4X4, miles 84,000. I noticed a small crack near the top of my radiator where radiator fluid has been slowly leaking out for the last two months. The car has not ever had a problem with overheating since I have owned it. Is there some way to seal it or does the radiator need to be replaced. What can cause a crack to happen and what is a reasonable price for repair?

Do you

The radiator needs to be replaced. The tanks can crack due to stress and vibration. Replace the whole new radiator to avoid further repairs on the same radiator.
