Hi, anybody knows where to repair aluminium radiator?? i'm using Drag and Drift aluminium radiator for around 9 months and today I found some minor leak... thinking of repairing since the leak is small...

thinking of changing to aluminium because it may last longer but im so wrong... :bawling:

normally. an establish A/Con shop could help to repair the leak. Normally using brazing method. Some would use epoxy glue....

the first time i only put in half bottle... seems to fix the problem but yesterday it started to leak again... so i pour in the other half bottle and looks like it work this time round... base on the instruction, use half bottle if the engine is a 4 cylinder and whole bottle if the engine is 6 or 8 cylinder... as mine is a 6 cylinder i guess that's why the first time it don't work...
