How long does it takes to repair blown head gasket with "STEEL SEAL"?

Probably never.

I can't say the magic pellet short cuts never work, but they likely only work for little leaks - sounds like you have a doozy and there will likely be no option but to remove the head and replace the gasket.

Oil in the radiator told need to replace the engine but alsoo was told there was a steel sleeve on engine block causing leak wanting to know if i could replace the sleeve or i had to replace the whole...

I think you are being led up the garden path here big time ,why because iam almost certain this is the head gasket ,the oil is pumped up to the head to feed the valves and in doing so passes through the head gasket which on numerous occasions on various makes its the head gasket .Some vehicles have a rubber seal around the hole like a seat ibiza and some dont like the focus but with a bit of wear as the motor gets old with over 100.000miles or so the head gasket can and will fail now the only ones that dont are the old morris minor with a copper head gasket .What happens is the head gasket material just breaks down ,the rubber ring in the gasket goes brittle or the material around the feed to the cam breaks down ,All this water in oil and oil in water junk you here so called mechanics blab on about is brown stuff ,this problem can also cause oil to leak out the side of the head and run down the block which its doing on my escort diesel and one day i maight change the gasket when pigs can fly that is of course .No takle the head off clean it up then check its flat with a straight edge and if its ok just renew the head gasket .End of story

2002 Honda Civic loosing coolant every 2 days... i dnt see a puddle..

well simple answer is it is only losing coolant when under presure so i would tighten all coolant hoses to be sure they are air tight then start the engine leave untill the fan comes on then check for a leak as will be under presure if you find the leak dont work on the cooling system untill compleatly cooled down then remove coolant cap then fix the leak fillwith coolant to just under max level replace coolant cap and start engine leave running untill fan kicks in and then see if leak has sealed dont forget check around cylinder head when checking for leaks

Water pouring out when poured into radaitor

You have a bad casting plug in the side of the engine. A lot of people call them freeze plugs because they pop out if the coolant freezes. They also rust through. They are driven in place and the size can be looked up at the parts store. You will want to change all of them . Lee

Crapy cadillac northstar overheating

Do you definitely have a blown head gasket?.......

You are absolutely right to avoid those gasket seal products, they will also f*%k up your cooling system big time.

Check for coolant flow at the Purge line,this is a common problem on the Northstar.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.

Many northstar engines have been misdiagnosed because of this simple blockage.
Many dealers and experienced mechanics fail to check it.

V6 engine failure

if heads were warped, then yes coolant got into the cylinder/s . so there is your water poured into engine. a bent piston rod cannot be diagnosed, it must be seen. a would run slick 50 into this engine.
