That's funny...don't use it...I had a wee small external coolant leak at the back right corner of the head on my 89 Supra and when I discovered it I was 600 miles from home. I tossed in a can of Bars Leak hoping at least to make it back home without having to replace the head gasket. Three years later (still no leak) I sold the car. JMOE
I know oil is a coolant too, and so is... um....."coolant"
The guy said he has a an oil
Then you said that Bars Leak fixed your coolant
problem for years................ but you said not
to use it, even tho it works
I is scratchin my head here.
To the original poster............ replace the gasket. Sealer in a bottle is a last resort attempt for those ugly, more difficult, and more expensive fixes like timing and rear main seals.
They can and sometimes do work............. but they are not the best option. If a leak occurs, the seal has turned to crap and needs to be replaced.
Sealer in a bottle for your fix, may cause the rear seal and the timing cover seal to start leaking, since oil sealers soften the seals.
If you fix and easy sealing repair by using a bottle because you are lazy
(your words, not mine
... and end up causing other, more major seals to leak.
....... then what will be the moral of the story?
