    It most likely has a very fine crack between the upper rad hose and the filler neck. Cheap route is to repair it or spend some cash and replace it. Plastic endtanks are pretty lame and will most likely crack again. I picked up an aluminum Mishimoto rad when mine cracked. Got it on amazon.com for around $250ish.

    Hopefully the leak was actually in the radiator.. I would have identified the source of the leak first. It would suck to replace your radiator only to realize that it was a pin hole in a hose that was the source of the leak the whole time.
