Yes, I have heard of this product, and I have used it. It does indeed work quite well. Just follow the directions, that is important for the additive to work properly. I would not be afraid to use it.
Good stuff!!!!!

How is Seal Up Liquid Glass Metallic used for a blown head gasket problem...the car is a 2004 Infiniti G-35. Need step by step instructions. Thank You. Eric and Gina


Hi Eric and Gina:
A radiator stop leak product may or may not solve (and that means TEMPORARILY) a head gasket problem.
It also will only work if the head gasket has failed between the cyliner and water jacket.
FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS THAT CAME WITH PRODUCT.
General practice would be (with the engine cool) to remove enough coolant to allow adequate space for the product. Add the product to the radiator through the fill cap. Top up with coolant. Run for minimum 10 to 15 minutes unless there is a lot of white smoke.
Allow to cool. Top up coolant in radiator and reservoir..
Best of luck

Has anyone used liquid steel for a blown head gasket and what were your results ?


As a really TEMPORARY fix you could try using aluminum radiator seal, but the only long term fix is to pull the head and replace the gasket.

2001 jetta blown Head gasket what can I do


Blown head gasket is a big job, I have had great success using some of the head gasket sealers, These products are not 100 percent for sure fix but work most of the time if the directions are followed correctly. Bars liquid glass has fixed the head gaskets in two cars ive owned when it works, it a permenant seal. Follow directions, and its best to remove the thermostate when using head gasket sealers.

I have a 97 LHS and the heads gaskets, possibly the heads, i was wondering if i should use the product call


Liquid Steel, Steel Seal, Duralast-all make a product with sodium silicate that is supposed to seal head gasket leaks. Some swear by it, most mechanics say it is a temporary fix or doesn't even work. It is about $90 per application, but check, I think the cost is refunded if it doesn't work. Some people have even bought sodium silicate (liquid glass) at a pharmacy for a few bucks and claim it works. IDK, it might be worth a try, if you just don't want to replace the gaskets. Google it, it's everywhere, even some testimonials on Youtube. Let us know if it works for you.
Good luck.

Where is my radiator? & My coolant is slowly leaking around the bolt of the last spark plug, can seal block be put into the radiator to help seal the block from the inside to stop all leaks?


the radiator is in front of the car.

Sounds like you might have a 2.2 liter?

It is very common for the head gasket to fail in the area you described. Block seal products rarely work and are only a temporary fix. If its leaking bad than the only true fix is to replace the head gasket. If its just seeping than keep an eye on the coolant level and you could go for years like that.

I need to seal up a head gasket in my 1990 cavalier. What do I use??


Autozone sells a great product that I have used on several cars with great results it's called block seal. make sure you follow the instructions to the letter on the bottle. By the way first time I used it was five years ago on my buddies car and he's still driving it, and it was so bad that after only 2 miles the radiator would completly empty into the crank case.

prices seem high, try to go elsewhere! price for waterpump and radiator are way to high, as for head gasket, it's a bit high but not really to bad. yes there is something you can put in radiator, it's called radiator stop leak, bargs? is the best i belive. note, stop leak is a TEMP solution. best off just to fix the problem.
