My expansion tank is leaking coolent. Can I just replace the tank or do i need to replace the radiator too.
Is it easy to replace the tank only?

You can just replace the tank by itself. Depending on how old your radiator is, consider that too. When you replace your tank don't forget to replace the coolant level sensor, a cheap $20 that let's you know your coolant is low. Very annoying when they stop working, which mine did!
