Make a DIY radiator guard for the future, and flush the fluids out, and put some new coolant in there. I don't like running those coolants, with additives to plug up holes or leaks in my engine/radiator.

Flush it out completely if you can. Also if you get a rock in your radiator, then you can patch it up with some stuff called "Waterweld" it's available at your local Autozone. It's cheap and it works pretty well.

if you have time take it off and take it to a shop and they can find the hole and fix it for ya, would be cheaper than a new one but yes i would repair or replace !

^^^ radiator repair vs replacement....

I dont doubt a plug kit would hold it for a while but I still don't like probable numbers over a better guarantee problems wont ensue in the future
