Hiya, i have a gt 05 and find out the radiator is start leaking very slowly.
The coolant water fall from max to min in half year, its not too bad. And the engine never
overheat.
But im worrying it could be go worse, and garage told me if the winter come
i could in a big trouble.

Im thinkin of using some stuff like k-seal, but someone said it could blew the engine !

or should i replace it ? Got a quote part and fix for 230+vat, is that good price ?

any comment will be appreciate.

Buy a new radiator.

Get a new rad, the sealant stuff is just false economy.

The sealant will block the leak for a period of time, but it's going to fail again one day, which will of course be when you least expect it. The other downside to the sealant is that it can clog up other parts within the coolant system, and like you mention, could cause damage to your engine.
