Aluminum/Plastic radiator crimp seam leaks.

Has anyone ever tried tightening the metal crimps around the leak tighter with a vise-grip? Any long term luck? Thanks

Not the answer to your question but leaks or weeps? Mine weeps when the temperature changes.

Hopefully some day somebody will make a good radiator for us.
