A leak does not mean an engine needs replacement. A leak can cause an over heat condition that can cause internal damage such as blown head gaskets or a crack in the block or cylinder head (s). A series of test should include a pressure test and a Carbon Monoxide test to determine if burned exhaust gases are present in the cooling system. This C.O. test is helpful in verifying internal engine damage. Depending on the age and mileage of the engine the customer would need to decide if it makes sense to repair an older engine or replace with a newer longer warranty engine. Most cases cylinder head gaskets and machine work can be replaced at a much lower cost than an engine.
