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.

96 Firebird, Replaced water pump, fuel pump - Now blows head gasket.


Get yourself another mechanic. This guy is not doing his job. It shouldn't cost $1600 to change a water pump and fuel pump. No proper mechanic would remove a thermostat to replace the O-ring and put the old thermstat back in. It wouldn't be uncommon for the coolant level to drop after changing the thermostat. It probably only needs to be topped up. No, the motor doesn't have to come out to replace the head gasket and I don't see it costing $2500. Before you spend any more money there, take the car somewhere else and get another opinion. I bet that if you fill up the coolant bottle for 2 0r 3 days it will stop losing coolant. Hope this helps.

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...

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.

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,
Lee

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.

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.
