Radiator on 2000 Saturn LS

I am asking all of this on my Mom's behalf. Her radiator is cracked and right now, she has a sealant on it which the mechanic said is a risk. How can my Mom keep the radiator from overheating? Regarding repairing/replacing the radiator,what are her options/prices? He also mentioned something about the oil pan and that running another 600.00 Any advice/info you could offer would be very much appreciated. Thanks Very Much

Your answer is vague and pathetic. I asked questions that any technician should be able to answer. This is a joke, right?!
