radiator gunk fix?

Well the time came for my radiator to start leaking (50k miles), a common issue I read, leaking from the plastic housing around the top.
Has anyone had luck with the radiator gunk quick-fix stuff from pepboys etc? I want to buy a month or two while I look for a cheapy on craigslist.

I tend to stay away from the radiator quick fixes because if it plugs a leak in the radiator... what else is it going to plug in the engine? Same with all of those transmission magic elixirs and the tire sealant in a can. Not good stuff.

My son just put one of these in his 99 and it went it easy. May not be the best, but it is certainly affordable. Less than $90.00 delivered, I've used that company to buy a lot of parts and they are excellent, just not a huge stock of Jeep parts.
