Hmmm radiator leaking

hi all
todays new problem is that i found my car getting hot so pulled into a garage and filled up my rad as it was low. anyway when i got to my destination where i had been parked there was a puddle and most of the water was out again aaaarrrrggghhh.

anyway found the culpret theres a leak in the rad. im a bit tight for cash until payday but need the car so does anyone on here recomend rad weld or stop leak addative to try and cure it or will this ruin other components like the water pump etc

or should i just carry lots of water and top up frequently (about every 10 mins it looses a litre) until i can get a new rad

ive just heard horror storys of addatives clogging up everything then along with a new rad you need waterpump and hoses.

thanks everyone for your help

Re: radiator leaking

If it's pisting out that quick mate I doubt Rad weld or any of that type of product will be much use sounds like the Rad that's if it is the Rad and not a blown hose is fecked.

Re: radiator leaking

Stop driving it and fit a new rad.

If it is loosing coolant that quick you will wreck your engine.
