Get your vehicle started
You have to start your vehicles in order that the coolant will start flowing from the radiator through the engine to the rest of the cooling system. Check out under the hood for finding leaks in the radiator and the attached pipes. You should also look for green fluid on the ground. However, if the source of the leakage is not visible easily, you can turn off the engine and clean the surface of the radiator with water pipe. You can make use of high pressured air for removing road debris obscuring the leakage. The method of repair is determined by the location as well as the type of the leakage.
Detach the hose of the damaged radiator
You also have to detach the hose of the damaged radiator. Unlock the metal rings at each end of the pipe and pull away the pipe away from the connectors. Then you should clean the openings of the connector, place the new pipe on the openings and secure it with metal rings.
Take off the radiator cap
You should take off the radiator cap once the engine and radiator have cooled down. Then you should pour a bottle of radiator cooling system sealant into the radiator and fill the rest of the space in the radiator with coolant. Most of the coolant system sealants are available in the forms of powder or tablet. Nevertheless both the versions work in a similar manner and flow through the coolant and swelling in order to fill the leakage. Then you have to start your car and drive for minimum 30 minutes for allowing the sealant to move through the radiator and cooling system.
Stop your engine and let it cool down
Finally you have to stop your car engine and let it cool down. You have to drain the coolant from the radiator and place the air-free plastic welder over the leakage till it gets heated. You can place the air-free welder on top of the plastic welding rod for melting it into the leakage till it starts taking the radiator cooler. You can then allow the welding to cool down.
