my radiator has a leak, i think in the flush vlave or whatever (the hole on the bottom left corner from a drivers seat point of view). shoud i get a new cork, and flush the system, or use that copper sealer stuff. also, whats the deal with these sealers?

And I would only get it from the cadillac dealer...... Although, the cadillac dealer is in spitting distance of me!

BUT..... I would not think that the sealer stuff will stop a leak that big (relatively speaking).... I think that stuff is moreso used for stopping/preventing leaks before they start <making a hole to leak from> or start leaking.....

I've found that good ol' black pepper stops the smaller leaks and (don't laugh, this is no joke) a green banana will stop the larger ones. These are some of the tips I've picked up from a variety of old timers.
