    A repair estimate has to be seen in person at your local radiator shop and as for replacement you can get that estimate here http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=6399 and locate a shop near you http://repairpal.com/directory?address=60505&car_brand_names=GMC

    yes it can be repaired It should have plastic tanks on an aluminum core That specific automobile is usually due to a crack inthe tank on the drivers side right under the oil cooler fitting . Should be able to have it cleaned an a new tank put on at a radiator shop foe about one hundred bucks. Thats what I charge.
