Question about 1990 Toyota Camry
Block sealer with sodium silicate, a.k.a. (liquid glass), is the stuff I always use. I have about a 75% sucsess rate.
Just follow the instructions exactly
With Sodium silicate the main thing is it doesnt like coolant. so you have to flush the coolant out of the system and have clean water in it before you add it to the system. After it has done its job and sealed the leaks, I drain the system and let it dry over night. then flush it again and add 50-50 mix of water and coolant.
The reason they say to use a 50-50 mix of coolant and water, is if you have more coolant than water it will not cool as well.
If you have more water than coolant it may not protect the metal from corrosion, the coolant from freezing, or provide enough lubrication for the water pump. thus making the water pump go out and or start leaking.
Make sure you have the reason it overheated cured, or the sealer wont do any good.
If you get it to seal up with the sodium silicate, it can last years, as long as you dont overheat it again.
