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.

It will sometimes work for a few thousand miles, but then they start to leak again, have they been leaking long? the longer they have leaked the less likely it is the stuff will work.

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.

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 have a 97 LHS and the heads gaskets, possibly the heads, i was wondering if i should use the product call


Liquid Steel, Steel Seal, Duralast-all make a product with sodium silicate that is supposed to seal head gasket leaks. Some swear by it, most mechanics say it is a temporary fix or doesn't even work. It is about $90 per application, but check, I think the cost is refunded if it doesn't work. Some people have even bought sodium silicate (liquid glass) at a pharmacy for a few bucks and claim it works. IDK, it might be worth a try, if you just don't want to replace the gaskets. Google it, it's everywhere, even some testimonials on Youtube. Let us know if it works for you.
Good luck.

I have the starting of a blown head gasket on a 2000 dodge intrepid. I was wondering does the steel seal stuff that is advertised really work? would really like to know before spending my hard earned...


It all depends on where the leak is and how bad. It could work but it also could not. Either way this would be almost a 100% temporary fix. I would either get it fixed right away or trade/sell the car. A head gasket replacement as long as the heads are good would run 800-1000$ at a reputable shop.'
Thank you,

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.

Head gasket blown


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 .
