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.

1st. place the front end on 2- 1/2 Ton jack stands next disconect - negative cable have a large container near by. unclamp the bottom rad hose pull it off the radiater splash" out comes the coolant take off the top hose on rad. next take off coollant resevoir clean it out good fill to max put back next disconnect cooling fan wires apart lift up the radiater transfer your cooling fan(s) from
your old rad to your new one slide back down your new one in place. connect your upper and lower rad hoses plug back in your cooling fan wires go over to battery and tighten down the -negative cable slide your heater control to heat start your engine and fill rad with a premixed 50/50 antifreeze mix let idle next open up the bleeder screw and bleed it top off rad and enjoy! ;)
