Hi, you will get differing opinions on this matter if you ask a group of mechanics. If the leak is not to large,and you aren't able to replace the radiator at this time,I believe you would be safe to use a product called Bars Leak. The liquid sealer is fine, for your car the 5.5 oz size would be adequate.You will find it at most auto parts sores.Just use one treatment,following the label directions. Here is a link to the companies website.Good luck,Jerry.
