I don't trust that stop leak stuff.
It can plug up more of your radiator than you
expected.
take it to a radiator shop and have it cleaned and mended. If it is shot
and you can't afford a new one yet, use epoxy glue to patch it. That'll hold
long if you prepare the surface right.
Cheers. p.s. it is not your over flow
tube flowing is it?

You should replace the radiator soon. The side tank is leaking and there is no product that will fix it.
