    Any product like that would only be used to get you home or to the repair shop.

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.

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.

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.

Change head gasket

You need to flush the cooling system if you are going to try a sealant. I have used ceramic sealer several times with mixed results. (about 50% of the time) I would not use steel seal. Unless you have a great deal of experience I would not recommend you try this repair. You need special tools to perform the repairs. High skill level+$ for special tools

I guess i have a broken head gasket, do you recomend a product called Steel Seal?

you can try it, but read this stuff first. I'd recommend replacing it, but if you haven't the time or money, . . .it sounds like that a lot of people have had success with it. But you can't go wrong with a new gasket Fel-Pro permatorque gaskets are what I use.

Just started to noticed white smoke coming out of exaust pipe. Noticed smell of gas. Is this normal for a car this old

Looks like you have a blown head-gasket. The white smoke is actually your engine coolant mixing with your engine oil and being expelled as a water vapor. You need to take it into a repair shop Immediately.

there are many was a head gasket can blow . sometimes they just leak to the outside sometimes they leak to the coolant and then it blows out your antifreeze. if you have a blown head gasket you will see it when you pull the head. and yes you should hace the head checked at a machine shop and install with a new head set never reuse a gasket .
