I have a leak in my radiator EF Falcon 1995. I want to but some stop leak stuff in but where do I pour it into? There is a hose under the reservoir that goes to the radiator could i pour it into this?

stop leak,pepper and an egg all work simular.

They go in the water, and expand when they hit air and seal.

Do yourself a favour and fix it, don't patch it.

The radiator has plastic tanks, if its split.. its f**k, even the cores.

The $20 your going to spend on the bars stop leak makes you pay $20 more on a $120 radiator.

yeah its on the passengers side and looks like a plastic tank I think, it feels plastic. So would this be F--ked? Is it easy to replace a radiator yourself if I get one?
Thanks
