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,

Dodge daytona smoke problem


Could be several things. A blown head gasket can come in a large range of severity, and is a good place to start looking. Is there "milky" stuff in the oil? if so it is from H2O getting in from the head gasket and means you should have it replaced. It could be the valve seals are bad, and it could be blow by (Oil) through the pistons if you have 1,000,000,000,000 or so miles. (Yes, a trillion). If it still has good power, no water (H2O) in the oil, and runs good, you could just drive it till it gets like, real bad. If you love the car, have the head gasket looked at/ replaced, get a valve job but be wary getting a new head because if lower moter has many miles, then a new, tight head will probably vastly accelerate the lower end tearing up. (half new, tight seals, and half older, looser seals, equals 2x pressure on the older.. get it?). I have had a blown head gasket in a 2.2 avenger that ran for 60,000 miles before it got (actually, the rear main went out so..) bad enough to need worked on. It is all about luck, really. Good Luck and God Bless.

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.

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.
