A leak in the radiator... you could try a stop leak. I like the one that is dry aluminum flakes better that the liquid. Now, don't use more that one application. Actually, you should NOT use it at all. It could clog up the heater core and other coolant passageways in the motor. The best way to fix it is to take it to a radiator shop. They will determine if it is repairable. The first way is the least expensive of all today, but may cause you troubles later. Taking it to a radiator shop will run a few bucks, but will be less that buying a new radiator!
