Titel:

Can I fix a hole in my radiator, or do I need a new one?

Tekst:

I think the answer to this one is going to be "no,' but if you don'task, the answer is always "no!"
 
After weeks of procrastination, hours of stripped-bolt frustration, and a brief period of euphoria when I successfully replaced my thermostat, I attempted to reattach the hose to the top right of my radiator, as one does. In shoving it on there, I managed to rip off the hose connector and surrounding radiator completely. There is a hole about 2.5 inches radius where my radiator would attach to the hose.
 
Can I glue the stuffing outta this until I have the money to replace the radiator? Can I just replace the top plastic part where the hose should attach?
 
I need it to drive 30 minutes each way from work, about 15 miles at the outside.
