2001 Ford Taurus 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 157000 miles

I HAVE A LEAK AND I WANT 2 PUT SOME RADIATOR LEAK IN THE RADIATOR BUT I CANT FIND THE RADIATOR AND THE TOP TO PUT IT IN. WILL IT HURT MY CAR IF I PUT IT IN THE RESERVOR TANK?

Radiator has no cap
the plastic bottle on the side is where to put or add coolant to the system
if engine hot wait until cool down, before you open cap as system may be pressurized and can burn you !

Stop leak NOT recommended
you can add it to the bottle
but my advice is to fix the leak as it will cost more on the long run if you add stop leak
and it may or may not work
why take the chance have it fixed correct the 1st time
good luck
