You need to replace it. No fix is reliable.

Drain coolant, remove rad, install new, refill. If you need more detail,
you shouldn't be doing this yourself.

Mmm... Rad is about $200 or so for aftermarket. Coolant about $15. Labor
maybe 2 hours, or about $200. Total is likely around $400-$500. Plus tax,
and assuming nothing else needs to be replaced or fixed.

While you are at it, it's also a good idea to replace the radiator hoses for
about $30 plus install a new thermostat. While it isn't necessary to do that,
the rubber in the hoses gets weak over time and I know you probably would spend
an extra $50 to have these replaced than to be stranded somewhere.
