I can't seem to get the fan temperature switch to seal with the radiator? Its a new radiator, new temp switch and a new paper gasket. Any tricks on getting it to seal? Im trying not to crack the plastic radiator.
It isn't leaking bad, just when the car gets up to temperature.

Spray some permatex hi-tac on both sides of the gasket. I usually do that with most paper gaskets. it always seems to work.

Mine is doing the same thing - try bit of teflon tape on the threads or a thin coating of RTV (Grey, AKA Hondabond is probably your best choice).
In my case, I just add coolant every few weeks and live with it b/c I don't want to flush the cooling system AGAIN.
