hey guys, so my issue is a coolant leak on my tc2000. its a 2001 and there is a leak at the bottom of the radiator but not coming from any joints, water pump, etc. It seems to come from the radiator at the seam. Not entirely sure but it is intermittent so hard to catch it. Im just wondering if its the radiator itself or something else im missing.

I don't have any TC2000s but I have had units that old have trouble with the tank cracking. After so many cycles of pressure-depressure the plastic just gives way. It's just a little crack and they will be intermittent some times because the crack opens and closes depending on the time the engine is running and how hot the system gets. So, if this is a bus that runs around town it may not get hot enough to open the crack but eventually it will. lol I have the tanks in stock and take the tank and the radiator to the radiator shop to be repaired.
