My radiator is leaking can it be repaired or do I have to replace it?

In years past we could repair radiators the tanks were brass or a metal that could be welded in order to repair a crack or split. Today’s radiators are aluminum and a plastic type material for the tanks, the idea was tabs could be bent back and new tanks installed, the problem is the tabs break and the new tanks can’t be sealed. Most of the time if we have a radiator leaking today we have to replace the complete radiator. Today’s radiators are much more efficient at heat transfer then in the past so they work much better. It’s a bit of a trade-off.
