Hey we bought a 2000 gmc/bluebird

Itís a good bus just took it for a 1000 mile Cruz. It ran great the whole time but we ended up with a radiator leak.😬. It wasnt that bad we got home by topping it off when we got gas. Anybody got a lead on where I can buy one or a part number? Itís one of hard to find parts for this bus because of the dual make.

You might try driving to the radiator shop to get their esteemed opinion since it still runs. It could be something simple. Or you can take the radiator out and send it to a radiator shop they can fix it if need be. You're not going to want to buy a new one if you can help it.

Pull it and repair it. Most of these big rads are crazy expensive new and the right used replacements can be hard to track down and iffy. Any radiator shop can handle it or check with any big rig repair shop. They will know someone.

Just imagine if you had finished your profile we would know where your located & could give better advice. I could recommend an excellent radiator shop but it doesn't do any good if your 3000 miles away.
