Default My radiator expansion tank is leaking....any ideas on how to fix.

Ok my radiator expansion tank is leaking. I need a temporary fix until i am able to get a new one shipped to me. The expansion tank is plastic and has a hole near the bottom. Any suggestions? I was thinking there might be something like bondo out there for something like this.

My car is a Subaru SUS legacy 2.5 sedan.

Ahh, easy fix. take the tank out, give it a good scrub and wash- let dry.

Use some 80 grit sand paper around the hole to rough up the surface. Use a epoxy stick, and fill hole. if its a small hole, you can actually skip this whole sentence, and just use a blob of RTV, and let cure. The tank is under no pressure, other than the weight of the coolant on top.
