    THOSE SEALANTS CLAIM TO BE THE SOLUTIONS TO ALL OF OUR AUTOMOTIVE PROBLEMS.ON A BLOWN HEAD GASKET,THE HEAD HAS TO COME OFF & THE GASKETS INVOLVED HAVE TO BE REPLACED.IF YOU USE ONE OF THOSE SEALANTS YOU MAY GET LUCKY & IT MAY SEAL YOUR GASKET LEAK IF ITS SMALL ENOUGH.BUT IT WILL ALSO SEAL UP EVERYTHING ELSE IN ITS PATH (RADIATOR,OIL PASSAGES ECT.) ONCE HEAVY PRESSURE BUILDS UP YOUR GOING TO HAVE ANOTHER LEAK.I KNOW HEAD GASKETS ARENT CHEAP,BUT CLOGGING AN ENGINE FURTHER WITH YOUR GASKET STILL LEAKING WONT HELP.

Head gasket leaking


You can try a product called "Blue Devil" engine sealant. It is kinda pricey but it works 75% of the time and the work /$ you could save is well worth the cost. However, if it does not work then you will have to pay to have your head gasket replaced(fortune). If you decide to takle this project yourself then study up on all the info you can get regarding this job especially if you have never done this b4. You can contact me if you need any pointers on said work. Good Luck.

BLOWN HEADGASKET- Gasket Sealers? I have heard that there are a few additives that work to fix a blown head gasket. Mechanics seem to like "BLUE DEVIL." One stated that he has used the product...


My personal experiences with gasket sealers for Head gaskets has been very poor due to the fact that it's difficult for the sealer to stick in the leak when there's so much combustion pressure trying to push the sealant out of the leak on one side and only about 17 psi of coolant pressure trying to keep it in from the other side. On both a 2.0L or a 2.4L engine I would suggest having the head removed and inspected and the gasket replaced....then your problem is fixed and done. Sealants may work for a while but I view them as a temporary band aid approach at best. If you have over 100,000 miles on the engine and haven't yet replaced the timing belt then it would be a good time to do that also as a worn timing belt can cause some pretty severe engine damage should it fail. Hope this helps and good luck!

The car keeps overheatnig. It was good for a minute after putting some coolant in it, but when you drive it or just turn it on sitting in the driveway after about 2 minutes the therometer is all the way up...


if its the thermostat your lucky easy fix just replace it but wait until the engine is cold the bolts are a nightmare to get to you have to take off air hose and disconnect a couple coolant hoses move them aside to get to the thermostat housing on the side of the engine tricky getting to that bolt.

if its the head gasket flush the radiator with flushing agent
first drain the coolant from bottom radiator hose replace with flushing agent run car idle about 10 minutes then
remove the thermostat replace the thermostat housing then fill the coolant back up leave room for blue devil head gasket sealant about $65.00 follow the directions to the tea run for 50 minutes if it doesn't work that baby needs to get in the shop
hope this helps don't forget to rate if I was helpful.
good luck
