over filled my coolant reservoir tank. now its leaking
so a couple weeks back, i noticed my coolant tank to be low so i filled it up. but i think i filled the reservoir tank too much. now i noticed little coolant spots on the top of my radiator which looks like little leaks coming out of the top. Im thinking its from too much pressure from over filling. my temp gauge doesnt say im overheating nor do i notice any decrease in performance.
ok so my question is, do i need to replace the radiator or is there a way to seal up these leaks?
and if i do need to replace the radiator... how important is it to get the 300$ alluminum one vs the basic 140$ one? does it make a difference in performance? will one last longer than the other? any help/ suggestions would be appreciated.
