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

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?


http://www.diyforums.net/anyone-tried-steel-seal-for-blown-head-gaskets-285608.html

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.

My 2000 millenia has a fuel tank that has cracked at the side seam. is there a way to repair this because the best price that I can find for a new tank is 1200.00. I dont know if the car is worth much...


It can be repaired for cheap. You need a tube of Seal-All and some toilet paper. Don't laugh, this really works. The Seal-All can be picked up at the auto parts store or a hardware store.
Clean the seam off with a steel brush to get the rust and loose dirt off. You don't need shiny bare steel. Wipe it down with some window cleaner. When dry, put a coat of Seal-All over the whole area and let it almost dry. Put on another coat of Seal-All and then dab a layer of toilet paper into the wet Seal-All. Let it dry and repeat this again. After 2 coats put a plain layer of Seal-All over the whole patch and you are good.
If you aren't sure then you could also use a product called JBWeld. It's a 2 part glue that should also do the trick, but it does need bare steel to do it's best job.
Hope this helps.

95 ford escort transmission leak


Dont waste your time and money trying to use a transmission stop leak product, they don't work on large leaks, you say the leak is excessive in this case the you must remove the transmission to access and remove the torque converter, after you have removed the torque converter carefully inspect the torque convert imput shaft for wear and also you will need to visually inspect the transmission front pump bushing for wear also, I have seen it all to often people just replace the seal thinking it was just a seal failure, well more times than not there is a reason for seal more than just the age of the seal, excessive wear on trans pump bushing and torque converter imput shaft is usaully the cause, check and repair those as good practice during this repair unless you just like to do the repair over again for free... also check the torque converter run out, sometime when they are repaired they are welded back together somewhat crooked which will cause it to spin off of a true center, this will cause immediate damage to transmission. Check also your engines crankshaft end play for looseness this can cause wobble which will transfer to transmission causing this problem as well... do the repair thouroughly and who ever does it for you have them check all that I listed and you should get a good repair which will last without issues.... please rate my help thanks...

Does anyone know if the steel seal works for blown head gaskets?


I used steel seal on a 93 Mazda pickup, it had 130,000 miles and it smoked like a steam engine out the tailpipe, I used the product and now have 189,000 miles and still running great.

Fibre glass repairs


Talk to your local parts store. I can't remember the name of the stuff, but there is a product specifically for this problem. You slosh it around the inside of the tank to seal leaks.
