    After looking at your pictures it looks as if the radiator is cracked at the mounting location. If that is the case then your radiator will need to be replaced.

    Thaks Russ,
    Do you know about how much that would be? Could you seal that?

    The top and bottom sections of your radiator are plastic. The plastic top section looks to be where the crack is. The plastic tank cannot be repaired, some radiator shops will replace the plastic tanks only. Most radiators are not very expensive these days and are replaced when leaks occur. Please check the repairpal website for cost estimates.
