I wouldnt recomend this as it may lead to your head getting cracked if it doesnt work and this will cost a lot more than replacing your head 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

Heat was working until I added something called Steel Seal. Prior to that, had my water pump, thremostat, and radiator cap replaced because of coolant I was losing, but could not physically see the...


Well Reggie,

You have "steel sealed" your radiator, heater core, water pump, cylinder head ports and every other part of your cooling system. There is no such thing as "mechanic-in-a-can"!

The PROBLEM with the garbage that the parts outlets sell as "fixes" for cooling system leaks (steel seal, radiator stop leak, bars leak, aluma seal, block seal, etc.) is that they WORK!!!! They will stop up your ENTIRE cooling system!

Your problem probably started out as a simple breach in a head gasket. Now, thanks to the "snake oil salesmen" that managed to get your hard-earned money away from you, you will now have to replace the heater core and the radiator in ADDITION to having to fix the head gasket. I just hope that you have not destroyed the cylinder head(s) in the process.

I really wish they would stop selling that stuff.....It invariably does more harm than good! I guess the parts stores like the stuff because now you will have to buy a whole bunch more parts than you would have if you had fixed it correctly to begin with.

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.

02 kia sedona diesel. it has thick black oil in the cooling system what is causing it?


It sounds like your oil cooler is gone , its located on the engine block above the oil filter housing, the oil will contaminate the cooling system hoses if left alone and cause them to rot

That's what it sounds like, a blown head gasket. Every time the piston compresses it pushes the air fuel mixture into your cooling system through the broken head gasket. Try running the engine with the radiator cap off or lose and look and smell for gas in your radiator overflow tank. Good luck and hope this helps.
