It Is Better To Repair Or Replace A Radiator?
This depends entirely on the problem the radiator is having, and how severe the problem has become. In many cases, the sooner you bring your car in after discovering the problem, the more likely it is that a repair will resolve the issue.
Of course, some problems are more serious than others and you may not always spot them early on. For example, a little rust could be addressed with a repair, but if the radiator shows signs of actual corrosion then it will need to be replaced.
