That's the same 4 things I heard of for an emergency fix, and I always wondered if they really worked.
My 28 Phaeton still has the original radiator, and when I bought the car in 1999 it had a damp spot near the top right of the radiator core. I put some stop leak in, and it's been bone dry ever since. It even held up fine after using vinegar for a month as a rust remover and cleaner.
