It depends upon what your problem is. If you have a badly blown head gasket then nothing will work, or if it is a small leak either into the water system or into the sump it could possibly work.So could you please give some more information about your problem.I hope this helpsregards

Is there a sealant for a blown head gasket or cracked head?


Hey Michael,
How/why do you think you have a blown gasket/cracked head??
....If you have a blown head gasket/cracked head you need to get it fixed ASAP.. Check your oil for cross contamination...( a light cream colored oil indicates water/antifreeze mixed with the oil).this WILL cause major damage if you continue to run the engine..(WATER is NOT a good engine lubricant!!!!) There are several "sealants" or radiator stop leak products... BUT ..cleaning these out of a coolant system is a NOT FUN!!.. Sorry.. trying to "patch" this will lead to more $$$$$ down the road!!

Can you recommend a sealant for head gasket in 2003 jeep Cherokee 2.5


If the gaskets come with a coating of sealant, do not use any extra.. MAKE SURE the gasket surfaces are FLAT, CLEAN (with sandpaper/machining/wire brushing..etc.. and clean with brake cleaner and then acetone... If the surfaces(head and block) are smooth, defect free and you use the proper torque sequence and settings (+10%), you should not have a problem..BUT, here is what I use..

Does the stop leak work by swelling the rubber seals or by detecting air and stopping up the leak?


It depends what sort of stop leak you're talking about. There's different types.

Something for a leaking windshield rubber works by filling a gap and then becomes hard, similar to how bathroom sealant works.

An oil stop-leak works by penetrating and 'refurbishing' -swelling- dried gaskets and then hardening when it contacts the air on the outside of the engine block.

Some types of coolant sealant work by allowing particles to congregate/collect around a small hole in a radiator, blocking the hole. The particles harden due to the air/heat to form a plug. This type of sealant can also block your heater matrix, and they do not repair rubber hoses (hoses must be replaced if leaking).

A cylinder head sealant works by either depositing particles in a small crack in the head or gasket, or in the case of a modern head sealant, it uses polymers.

If you have a slight oil leak - slight - on an engine or auto box, try a sealant. If it's anything more than a slight weep, then gasket/seal replacement is the best option.

Intake to head bolt torque


Intake bolt torque is 11-14 foot pounds. Note:
to torque bolts & nuts, start in center using
crisscross pattern working outward. And as Far as the sealant goes, you shouldn't need any additional sealant since the new gasket has sealant.(just make sure both surfaces are clean an free of oil.) sometimes if the head or the block show signs of pitting on the matteing surfaces then you could use a litttle of that cooper spray gasket to coat the new gasket.
