Do not use Duraseal if you have a turbo diesel engine. I tried it on my 2008 Ford F350 6.4 diesel as a last resort after replacing my rad, hoses and other misc. cooling system items. System was air tight after doing the work as I checked with Airlift 5000 and held 25 psi for 2 minutes plus. Oil temp and coolant temps were within 2 to 7 degrees of each other before doing the Duraseal fix attempt. Did it on the weekend of 12-27-2014. After fix, drove truck at least 75 miles and coolant to oil temps deltas were 30 plus degrees without a load, more with a small load on. Local Ford mechanic encountered another person with same problem after attempting to use product. It didn't fix the head gasket problem either. They want you to try another attempt for free but why would you make the problem any worse. They won't refund your money after this either. There is no bending with this company. They claim to formulate for individual engines, so they should be willing to refund the money if this sort of thing happens. The tech was trying to say there was something wrong with the cooler before hand, but that's impossible with the minor temp difference. I even used there flush before doing their procedure. It would be good business practice to refund my money under these circumstances since it didn't work and it clogged a perfectly functioning oil cooler. DO NOT BUY DURASEAL!!!!!!!!! They are a no compromise company! They are unwilling to satisfy when the product doesn't work and does harm to components!

SOURCE: head gasket sealant

As a A S E Certified Tech I Do NOT RECOMEND ANY "QUICK FIX" ADDITIVES Especialy for such a Critical Engine Component

More Costly but Also More effective is to Tear down Engine and Replace Head Gasket as You may have A Cracked Head Or Block That NO ADDITIVE will TRUELY REPAIR PROPERLY

Does that dura-seal head gasket repair stuff REALLY work?

I had a blow head gasket on my BMW 6 cyl. and it was blowing white smoke and losing alot of coolant. After doing alot of research I found that all the other brands like blue devil, steel seal, KW and bars all use water-glass. The only company that does NOT USE WATER-GLASS is Dura-Seal. If you have aluminum heads it's very important to use a sealer that can flex with your engine's aluminum heads. The DuraSeal actually stays flexible! So I tried it and it stopped the smoke and overheating. No more coolant loss either. It's been running fine for over a year now. I would reccomend Dura Seal head gasket sealer to everyone... Great product! Also the tech department guys really know what they are talking about...

Does head gasket sealant really work?

it depends upon what your problem is. If you have a badly blown head gasket then nothing will work, or if it is a small leak either into the water system or into the sump it could possibly work.So could you please give some more information about your problem.I hope this helpsregards

Chev s10 1998 over heating water in oil can i do a quick fix with gasket sealer an still drive truck until i can afford to replace gaskets

Over the years I have seen quite a number of sealers advertised to repair gaskets etc. There are newer ones out that make the same claims (also expensive @ about $100). Though it is possible that they work, I have no idea for how long. As always, the best cure for a cylinder head gasket problem is still to actually do the repair.
Regardless of how you correct the problem, make certain that you drain the oil and filter or you will be looking at a bearing failure shortly.

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.

1993 saab turbo CSE. limphome mode, possible head gasket leak

Things can only get get worse and that means more expense. Like mine, better to do the head gasket asap while it's not too expensive or at least get the head bolt torque settings checked after the rebuild as they may need tweeking.

Head gasket replacement

doin a head gasket replacement is not really easy specially if the engine stil in the car . . u have to take the right procedures unless u trying to do a cheap fix, u need to check for warpage for cylinder head and block deck so when it comes to head gasket work u really need to do things carefully and take it step by step.
