Answers :

You will need to be more specific on what the problem is? Do you want to replace the radiator, fix it, or simply identify why it is smoking?

Those things stated; have you identified where it is smoking from? Are your fluid levels at the appropriate amount? Does the issue continue when you add clean 50/50 solution to bring the cooling system up to its appropriate fluid levels? Does it increase when you add fluid?

The strongest likelihood is that you have a leak from one or more places in the cooling system. This can be caused by failed parts and/or connections. Inspect the hoses running to and from the radiator. Check the connections to see if any have come loose. Then inspect the hoses, the thermostat, the reservoir, and the radiator itself for leaks. Should any of these parts or hoses started to leak, you will need to replace them. None of the jobs are terribly difficult, but a radiator can be a little costly. A radiator on your '93 Tercel will cost around $120 (depending on region). If you are really lucky, the leak will only be coming from the radiator's drain plug or a hose... as those will only run a person around ten dollars to replace.
You can use a "stops leak" to curb the issue, but (even if it works... your leak may be too great) it will only delay the inevitable. Complete the repairs, this one is not serious enough to require the replacement of your car.
