As I said here a few days ago, my radiator has sprung a leak along the seam between the metal and plastic components on the offside. It is now currently empty as everything has escaped from the crack.
I have 2 options:
1. Pay the local garage £100 to fit the new part (arriving mail order)
2. Do a temporary fix, so I can get my car to my girlfriends house in Hull (200 miles away) where there is a big garage.
I've heard mixed reactions about the use of Rad-weld... I know it's not a long term solution, but could anyone recommend it for getting the car to her garge to repair?
Can it do any permanent damage to the system, if I was to use it for the 200 mile drive and then flush it out asap?
